AVEVA Communication Drivers
Plant Integration and Connectivity
Cloud-ready and IIoT communication strategies demand a broad set of connectivity options. AVEVA Communication Drivers offer a single platform that is hardware-independent, helping you to enforce standards, promote consistency, simplify configuration and maximise communication uptime.
New Telemetry Server – Expanding Your Geographical Reach
Create geographically distributed SCADA and Telemetry applications with increased ease by using native built-in drivers like IEC 60870, DNP3 and Modbus.
Connectivity that is Hardware and Vendor-Agnostic
As Communication Drivers are hardware independent, you have the benefit of a sole interface for configuring, deploying as well as managing connectivity. Built on open-plant philosophy, Communication Drivers allow for smooth configuration and integration. These Communication Drivers connect to any OPC UA Server, while supporting open-communication connectivity protocols like OPC DA, MQTT and OPC UA.
Improve Engineering Efficiency and Connectivity
Communication Drivers Features
Ensure the smooth integration and connection of various systems and devices with supervisory HMI and historical data storage.
Improve Engineering Efficiency with Automatic Tag and PLC Control Strategy
The new Auto-Build feature assists engineering efficiency by reading the structure of a PLC programme and, based on the PLC schema, automatically building the Application Server templates and instances.
MQTT & OPC UA Support
A communications protocol converter, Device Integration Gateway, connects clients and data sources that communicate using different protocols. It also acts as an OPC UA client. Device Integration Gateway now also supports message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) protocol. This new feature is making device configuration, integration and interoperability simpler than ever before.
IIoT Connectivity Applications Support
In order to facilitate increased adoption and integration of IIoT-edge device applications, free 32-tag tiny application support was introduced. This enables the integration of edge applications with 32 or fewer tags. It also enables online or System Platform connection, without the need for an additional licence.
Minimised Application Costs and Increased Throughput
Communication Drivers enable the consolidation of scattered architectures into fewer nodes. They facilitate the parallel independent processing of I/O by individual driver instances, which increases overall throughput or improves performance per driver and per node. A single-node license now covers as many servers as you may require in a single node.
Smooth Version Upgrades With No Communication Disruptions
Communication Drivers offer single-node, side-by-side upgrade capability. This unique capability makes it possible for you to upgrade to newer versions of your current drivers – without disrupting the continued operation of your legacy drivers.
Multi-Instance Architecture Provide Unlimited Scalability
Eliminate the need for restricting a single driver to a single node. It is now possible for you to run multiple, completely independent instances of the same driver on a single node. This unique feature allows for unlimited driver instances, which are restricted only by computer hardware specifications.
