Kepware Technologies unveiled enhancements to its KEPServerEX platform, which is now offering new solutions to simplify communications management.

KEPServerEX 5.11 enhancements include support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, in addition to the following new products and features:

• IEC 61850 MMS Client Driver: This new driver utilizes the Manufacturing Messaging Specification (MMS) of the IEC 61850 specification for sending data from substation automation devices (like switches and circuit breakers) to SCADA and HMI applications for analysis and reporting.
• OPC XML-DA Client Driver: This new driver strengthens Kepware’s OPC Connectivity Suite offering, and enables users to connect to any OPC XML-DA Server. The driver simplifies connectivity to other Third-Party servers and can circumvent proprietary protocols, thus enabling KEPServerEX to easily aggregate OPC data.
• EFM Simulator: This new feature is an easy-to-use, Flow Computer simulator within the EFM Suite. The driver simulates EFM historical data in order to confirm that the EFM Exporter Plug-In configuration works properly. The EFM Simulator saves users time and money by eliminating the need to physically connect to flow computers when evaluating the server and exporter configurations.

“I’m excited to begin using Kepware’s new IEC 61850 driver for the solar projects we will be working on in 2013 due to the ease of use and robustness I’ve come to expect with Kepware products,” said Xavier Vallespi, technical information officer of Green Power Monitor.

KEPServerEX connects, manages, monitors, and controls diverse automation devices and software applications.
