IIoT and cloud-ready communication strategies require a broad set of connectivity options. AVEVA Communication Drivers provide a single, hardware-independent platform that helps you enforce standards, simplifies configuration, promotes consistency, and maximises communication uptime.
Build geographically distributed SCADA and Telemetry applications with increased ease using native built-in drivers such as DNP3, IEC 60870 and Modbus.
And because Communication Drivers are hardware independent, you enjoy a common interface for configuring, deploying and managing connectivity. Built on open plant philosophy, Communication Drivers enable seamless configuration and integration. Our Communication Drivers connect to any OPC UA Server and support open communication connectivity protocols such as MQTT, OPC DA, and OPC UA.
The new Auto-Build feature helps improve engineering efficiency by reading the structure of a PLC program and automatically building the Application Server templates and instances based on the PLC schema. This can result in drastically shortened development time and better integration between System Platform and PLCs.
Device Integration Gateway is a communications protocol converter. It links clients and data sources that communicate using different protocols, and also acts as an OPC UA client. Device Integration Gateway now also supports message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) protocol, making device configuration, integration, and interoperability easier than ever.
To facilitate greater adoption and integration of IIoT edge device applications, we’ve introduced free 32-tag tiny application support. This enables you to integrate edge applications with 32 or fewer tags and to connect online or to System Platform without requiring an additional license.
Communication Drivers help consolidate scattered architectures into fewer nodes. They enable parallel independent processing of I/O by individual driver instances. This increases overall throughput or improves performance per driver and per node. A single-node license now covers as many servers as you want in a single node.
Communication Drivers provide single node side-by-side upgrade capability. This unique capability lets you upgrade to newer versions of your current drivers without disrupting continued operation of the legacy drivers.
Eliminate the need to restrict a single driver to a single node. Now you can run multiple, completely independent instances of the same driver on a single node. This unique feature will allow unlimited driver instances, restricted only by computer hardware specifications.
