Can ignition communicate with Keyence PLC?


Does anyone know if ignition can connect to Keyence PLC ( probably KV-7500 or KV-8000 )?

I only see the built-in driver for AB, Omron, and Siemens.


Not directly, but it looks like Kepware has a driver for Keyence PLCs and you could make an OPC UA connection to Kepware once you have that set up.

How do you like it?

I asked a rep about it and they told me to stay away from them , support is not there. ironic from a company that is usually great on support for their products.

I’ve bumped into these. Apparently they are new to the U.S. market, so Keyence techs here aren’t really up to speed.

The KV-8000A is being marketed as having a built-in OPC-UA server. Could this feature be used to connect Ignition to it? Has anyone tried this or would know if it is possible? I found the Kepware solution but at $1450 for a perpetual license that adds quite a bit of cost to a system.
