DGH uses Kepware for Modbus communications

July 14, 2008 – Kepware Technologies was selected as the primary provider of device communications by DGH Corporation.

DGH is a leader in sensor-based data acquisition offering a complete family of data acquisition products that provide analog and digital inputs and outputs for computer and networked applications. DGH data acquisition products can communicate via RS232 and RS485 using Modbus RTU protocol. DGH has specifically tested Kepware’s KEPServerEX and has selected it as their preferred Modbus connectivity solution. The “Connected with Kepware” designation signifies an ongoing partnership with DGH to ensure DGH is aware of upcoming releases and technology, and will stay current with Kepware developments in order to offer proven connectivity for their customers.

“DGH is an excellent example highlighting the value of our new “Connected with Kepware” program,” says Roy Kok, VP of Sales and Marketing for Kepware. “They have been recommending our solution for many years and our new program brings our ongoing relationship to a new level, by keeping them abreast of our technology developments and working with them to validate our communications with their products for the benefit of DGH customers.”

“There are many Modbus Drivers on the market,” explains David Reed, Product Manager for DGH Corporation. We have worked with most of them, and have chosen to partner with Kepware as they are clearly the industry leader in communications and have developed an excellent product. Their KEPServerEX solution is OEM’d by most of the software companies that leverage our sensor products. By joining the “Connected with Kepware” program, we not only gain proven connectivity through a driver that we can recommend, we can honestly say that our hardware is proven with the connectivity solution already incorporated in most automation software products in our industry.”
