Reading 3rd party devices via SNMP

There is an application in a datacenter with enLogic Energy Meters (EN Series Power Distribution Unit & EZ Series Energy Meter) installed.  Customer would like to integrate the meters' data into PME but that is running in SNMP.

 

From the kb on se.com it looks like certain types of gateway are doable (https://www.se.com/ww/en/faqs/FA211887/).

However by reading in more details majority of those are just as a kind of slave allowing the SNMP manager to read information from them, instead of being a master to read data from other 3rd party device via SNMP.

 

New to SNMP and thus your recommended solution on what devices/tools to use and how to use are much appreciated.

Re: Reading 3rd party devices via SNMP

I believe the standard solution is to install and configure KEPServer to read the SNMP devices and convert the data to OPC, then you can use the Device Type Editor to create an OPC device to read from KEPServer.

 

At one time, the KEPServer installer was included on the PME ISO and there was a standard SE part for the license, but I don't know offhand if that's the case anymore.  There are other software solutions out there, though; I think Matrikon has their own variant.
