February 21, 2012 – Kepware Technologies released KEPServerEX 5.8, with an upgrade that includes new drivers, and several new features aimed at existing customers on Kepware's support and maintenance program to improve their business operations, performance, and security. To expand existing connectivity, KEPServerEX now features a new Allen-Bradley ControlLogix Unsolicited Driver, which greatly expands connectivity for plant wide optimization. Also included in this release are advanced communications and infrastructure improvements to more fully integrate with Fisher ROC and ROC Plus Controllers providing customers with enhanced interoperability. Accompanying the KEPServerEX 5.8 release are updates for Kepware’s LinkMaster 3.0, RedundancyMaster 2.0 and ClientAce 3.5. LinkMaster and RedundancyMaster are now fully supported on Windows 7/Vista and Windows Server 2008/2003 and have incorporated the same Kepware licensing and service support model as KEPServerEX V5. ClientAce 3.5 has been updated to include support for Visual Studio 2010 and contains additional sample code. KEPServerEX 5.8 also includes the addition of Modbus Channel Serialization, enhanced Device Level Communication Diagnostics to aid with performance tuning and assist with troubleshooting. For security and regulatory control, KEPServerEX now delivers optimized event logging, finer user management control and allows the user to control whether or not client applications can directly access device memory.
