KEPServerEX version 5.14 features performance and usability improvements for Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet, and DataLogger Plug-In

PORTLAND, Maine -- Kepware Technologies, a software development company focused on communications for automation, today announced the release of KEPServerEX(® )version 5.14. The latest iteration of the company's flagship communications platform addresses evolving customer needs related to data storage, accessibility, and compliance across several of the key industries Kepware serves, including Oil & Gas, Power, and Discrete and Process Manufacturing.

KEPServerEX version 5.14 now supports Liquid Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) data for several drivers and plug-ins in Kepware's EFM Suite, including existing Fisher ROC+ and OMNI Flow Computer drivers, as well as the EFM Exporter. The EFM Exporter has been engineered to export data to Flow-Cal as liquid CFX files. The enhanced EFM Suite will allow Kepware customers to minimize the solutions necessary for collecting both real-time and historical gas and liquid EFM data from the industry's leading flow computers, and reduce the number of applications required to perform measurement analysis.

"Having successfully used Kepware to collect real-time data from OMNI Flow Computers and other automation devices, we jumped at the opportunity to beta test Liquid EFM support in their OMNI Flow Computer Driver and EFM Exporter," said Mark Atwood, Director of Liquid Measurement, Crosstex Energy. "The new solution has proved invaluable. Kepware has exceeded our expectations as far as support, having worked with us directly to resolve issues and tailor the solution to best serve our environment."

KEPServerEX version 5.14 also features significant performance improvements to the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix Ethernet Driver, designed to take advantage of larger packet sizes allowed in v20 ControlLogix Controllers and higher. Furthermore, major usability improvements have been made to the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet Driver, including Automatic Tag Generation for S7 300 and S7 400 Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).

"As industrial automation technology advances, we want to ensure that Kepware's solutions support and leverage the most recent capabilities of industry-leading vendors like Rockwell Automation and Siemens" said Tony Paine, CEO of Kepware Technologies. "With KEPServerEX version 5.14, we focused heavily on integrating with vendors that have the greatest impact on the market--and meeting our customers' increasing needs for reliable data access and management."

DataLogger Plug-In upgrades in KEPServerEX version 5.14 guarantee delivery of valuable process data to a SQL server. The new store and forward technology stores data locally when connectivity to the SQL server is lost, and then forwards the stored data to the SQL server once the server becomes available again.
