Kepware Technologies released KEPServerEX version 5.21.

The release extends the connectivity options available within KEPServerEX and expands interoperability with the ThingWorx IoT Platform, further enabling the rapid development and deployment of smart-connected solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).

KEPServerEX version 5.21 introduces the new ThingWorx native client interface, a fully-integrated solution built to provide rapid connection to industrial things—including PLCs, RTUs, PACs, DAQs, controllers, and more. The ThingWorx native client interface extends KEPServerEX and leverages Kepware’s library of 150+ communication drivers to provide real-time, bi-directional industrial controls data to the ThingWorx IoT Platform.

“This latest product release improves upon what is already the industry’s strongest solution for IoT connectivity and rapid app development,” said Tony Paine, Platform President, Kepware. “The integration provided through the new ThingWorx native client interface gives customers and ThingWorx application developers access to even more options for connectivity and control—streamlining operational efficiencies and delivering better results.”

The update also features a KEPServerEX Extension for the ThingWorx IoT Platform, which allows users to quickly and easily connect and configure ThingWorx-developed applications to KEPServerEX. The extension automatically configures a KEPServerEX remote thing template within ThingWorx and provides services to browse, read, write, and interact with the configuration. It is provided free of charge with the KEPServerEX installation or through the ThingWorx Marketplace.
