Kepware releases KEPServerX V5.21 IoT platform

August 16, 2016 -- Kepware Technologies, a PTC business developing industrial connectivity software, today announced the release of KEPServerEX® version 5.21. The release extends the connectivity options available within KEPServerEX and expands interoperability with the ThingWorx IoT Platform, further enabling the development and deployment of smart-connected solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).

KEPServerEX version 5.21 introduces the 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.

The update also features a KEPServerEX Extension for the ThingWorx IoT Platform, which allows users to 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.

In addition to the ThingWorx native client interface, KEPServerEX version 5.21 also includes 18 updates to the server, select drivers, and advanced plug-ins.
