Expanding connectivity and increasing data value have become vitally important as companies strive to leverage real benefits from the IoT/IIoT, big data and cloud technologies. Yet connecting and integrating disparate devices to Supervisory HMI/SCADA and Historian databases remains a challenge for many organizations, particularly in the manufacturing domain.
AVEVA Communication Drivers provide a single, hardware-independent connectivity tool set that helps you enforce standards, simplifies configuration, promotes consistency, and maximizes communication uptime.
In addition to the standard driver selection provided with AVEVA software, we offer and recommend Software Toolbox and Kepware device integration software.
Link virtually every plant information device and source, easily and cost-effectively, with open communication standards, hardware agnostic connectivity, and seamless configuration abilities.
Reduce PLC connectivity configuration efforts by almost 50 percent with the ability to automatically read and structure a PLC program based on current schema.
This enables you to integrate edge applications with 32 or fewer tags and to connect online or to System Platform without requiring an additional purchase.
Built with an open plant philosophy, Communication Drivers enable seamless configuration and integration. Connect using open communication connectivity protocols such as MQTT, OPC DA, and OPC UA.
Consolidate scattered architectures by running multiple, completely independent instances of the same driver in a single node.
Run previous driver versions while adding a new driver version of the same driver protocol for growth without disruptions.
The OI Server uses the ADS Library for communication and should support any TCP/IP Ethernet Beckhoff device compatible with the ADS Library version you install. The following devices were used in the conformance tests:
If you are unsure if your specific device is supported, please contact your Beckhoff support and confirm your device compatibility with the ADS Library.
