Overview

Product Overview

The Custom Interface driver is the ideal solution for quickly and easily adding proven interoperability to custom integration projects—from small applications with one deployment to professional packages for industry-wide deployment. The Custom Interface driver provides an additional interface (like a communications driver) that enables secure and reliable communications between Kepware and CID-compliant software solutions (the CID Application). Kepware delivers data via a wide range of client interfaces, including certified standards like OPC and native interfaces for Oracle, Wonderware, GE Intelligent Platforms, and other industry-leading manufacturers. Now, third-party solutions can interface with and control your CID Application through interfaces delivered and supported by Kepware.
