Modbus Ethernet

The Modbus Ethernet driver enables ThingWorx Kepware Edge to connect to devices that utilize the popular Modbus protocol. By converting from Modbus to more secure and efficient protocols directly at the edge, users can secure communications and reduce costly network traffic. 

The ThingWorx Kepware Edge Modbus Ethernet driver includes different features and functionality from the KEPServerEX Modbus Ethernet driver, but offers the quality, reliability, and security of all Kepware products. Users can rely on the Modbus Ethernet driver built into ThingWorx Kepware Edge without fear of communication-related downtime. 

The Modbus Ethernet driver also provides access to Modbus Ethernet protocol compliant devices for ThingWorx. Users of ThingWorx, the leading Industrial IoT platform, can now connect to these devices in a Linux environment using ThingWorx Kepware Edge.

What is a Driver?

ThingWorx Kepware Edge allows the most valuable features of KEPServerEX to be deployed in Linux-based environments. It offers users flexible deployment of valuable Kepware functionality and native connectivity to ThingWorx, the leading Industrial IoT platform.

A driver is a software component that enables ThingWorx Kepware Edge to meet the connectivity requirements of a specific device. The driver handles all proprietary communications to the data source; interfaces handle all supported connectivity to applications that monitor or control devices.
