Courtesy: KepwareKepware Technologies' KEPServerEX version 5.17 has enhancements like the scheduler plug-in and updates to the local historian plug-in and EFM suite. The updates are designed for industries that require remote communications including oil and gas, water and wastewater, and power.

The scheduler plug-in enables users to move the scheduling of data requests from the client to the server to optimize device communications for networks with limited bandwidth. Its centralized scheduling functionality allows users to prioritize schedules and define when and what specific data sets to poll-providing control and monitoring of network utilization. It also adds security to the network by preventing "rogue" clients from hijacking available bandwidth from critical applications.

The EFM Suite for KEPServerEX is a collection of drivers and electronic flow measurement (EFM) exporters that enable oil & gas companies to poll real-time and historical EFM data from pipeline flow computers and RTUs. KEPServerEX version 5.17 also allows users to cleanly import gas EFM data into Flowcal's Oracle database via the Flowcal Transaction Queue. This is designed to simplify training, configuration, support, and maintenance for users.

Kepware also updated the local historian plug-in to support OPC historical data access (HDA) processed read requests. The processed read requests shift the heavy data computation load from the client to the historian server, minimizing the network load from each request.
