DataLogger for KEPServerEX®
DataLogger is an advanced plug-in that extends the capabilities of the KEPServerEX connectivity platform. It
logs industrial data—gathered by KEPServerEX—to Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)-compliant databases,
such as SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft (MS) Access, and Oracle. Logging industrial data enables users
to perform auditing and compliance checks, historical comparisons, trend analysis, Overall Equipment
Effectiveness (OEE) analysis, and more.
DataLogger supports adding data items through an easy-to-use tag browsing interface and CSV file import.
DataLogger can log a small set of data to a single table or high volumes of data to multiple databases—at
speeds ranging from milliseconds to hours. In addition, DataLogger’s store and forward capabilities bridge
network and database outages or delays—ensuring the reliability of critical data.
