KEPServerEX V6.2 includes localization of core features and top drivers into simplified Chinese

PORTLAND, Maine, July 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kepware® a PTC business developing industrial connectivity software, today announced the release of the KEPServerEX® version 6.2 industrial connectivity platform. Significant enhancements include localization of core server components and top-tier drivers into simplified Chinese, a new TIA Portal Exporter utility, new functionality for the CODESYS Ethernet driver, improved interoperability with the ThingWorx® IoT Platform, and Configuration API support for the EFM Exporter.

With KEPServerEX version 6.2, core server components and top-tier drivers—including the Allen-Bradley Suite, Mitsubishi Suite, Omron Suite, and more—have been localized into simplified Chinese.

"Localization into simplified Chinese presents new efficiencies for our customers here in Asia," said Jason Ye, Application Engineer, PTC. "Users in Mainland China, Singapore, and Taiwan can now navigate and interact with KEPServerEX more effectively, enabling more productive, streamlined, and safe operations as well as expanded integration. KEPServerEX is a truly global product, and this update is a testament to our commitment to supporting the needs of our global customers."

KEPServerEX version 6.2 also includes the following:

  • New TIA Portal Exporter Utility: Customers with Siemens S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, and S7-1500 controllers that utilize the Siemens TIA Portal can now gain immediate access to their data. Used with the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver, the TIA Portal Exporter Utility enables users to automatically generate the specific tags they need for their KEPServerEX projects.
  • CODESYS Ethernet driver: KEPServerEX version 6.2 provides real-time read/write data access to devices running CODESYS V3. Customers with smart, connected operations using devices that run on CODESYS (a common PLC runtime and development environment) can now easily collect industrial data from disparate devices across their plant.
  • Enhanced ThingWorx integration: Customers utilizing KEPServerEX with ThingWorx can now quickly and easily find and utilize industrial data in augmented reality experiences, machine learning models, mashups, or other ThingWorx tools. In conjunction with ThingWorx 8, KEPServerEX version 6.2 contains new functionality that gives users easy access to all of their KEPServerEX data within ThingWorx Composer, the ability to quickly associate that data with new or existing things in the ThingModel, and the ability to view mapping and critical diagnostic information from the ThingWorx platform.
  • Configuration API support for the EFM Exporter: Customers can now make programmatic changes to the EFM Exporter via third-party applications (such as SCADA, HMI, IoT applications, and simple web applications)—enabling project standardization and simplification.

KEPServerEX version 6.2 also includes updates to 19 other server components, drivers, and advanced plug-ins.
