Instantly Links Fieldbus & Modbus® Equipped Industrial Systems to Mobile Devices and Cloud

Custom servicing apps for maintenance efficiency

On-site verification is crucial in maintaining industrial and electrical networks, and on-board LCD interfaces are inadequate for efficient, safe testing and servicing. Mobile apps are today’s essential tool for improving maintenance efficiency, reducing human error, and protecting technicians in these challenging environments.

TapNPass is your instant, ‘no code’ solution for wireless retrofit and creation of custom mobile apps that correspond to your testing and servicing requirements. TapNPass Duetware-based wireless adapters transform existing industrial equipment into wireless connected systems to facilitate on-site interventions for commissioning, audits, maintenance and software updates. TapNPass is designed as a Modbus (RTU) Master device allowing users to configure, monitor and control industrial equipment and systems.

TapNPass for HMI as Mobile Apps

Improve service efficiency with mobile apps

Technicians’ familiarity with mobile apps make them ideal for connecting to equipment, navigating complex data and identifying performance problems. Apps are the perfect replacement for inefficient on-board LCD interfaces, and cumbersome PCs. And, data stored by apps can easily be sent to supervisors, thus improving efficiency at all levels of your organization.

TapNPass with our automatic App Generator is the 'no code' solution to rapidly create apps that are tailored to your users. It requires just a simple configuration of access and display parameters. It supports the creation of custom mobile apps with:

  • Embedded Duetware for all communication, security and data handling features
  • IoTize Studio drag-and-drop configuration environment
  • Automatic App Generator

Fieldbus, Modbus® to wireless

The right connectivity when it's needed

SCADA networks empower remote supervision but don’t always benefit the technicians in their daily, on-site maintenance tasks. NFC helps technicians connect securely and surely to the right equipment. While Wi-Fi or Bluetooth allow them to work comfortably and at a safe distance from high voltage and moving parts. With our portable, configurable tool, put the interface that your maintenance technicians need, right in their hands.

TapNPass connects to legacy fieldbus ports, replacing serial cables with robust, secure wireless communications. The TapNPass line offers:

  • Connection to legacy Modbus® and fieldbus (RS232, RS485, USB)
  • NFC enhanced Bluetooth (BLE) and Wi-Fi for connection to mobiles
  • Designed-in security and access contro

 Easy Customization

Increase flexibility with servicing apps and plug-and-play wireless tools

Mobile apps are easy to change and distribute to technicians, thus easy to evolve to changing environments, maintenance problems, and servicing tasks. Configure and generate the interfaces your technicians need in order to recognize problems more rapidly and apply pertinent solutions whether reconfiguring systems, updating software, or escalating problems to get help. Our configurable, portable wireless tools ensure they have the connectivity and the apps when and where they need them.

TapNPass portable wireless tools reconfigure to suit changing requirements and ease the creation of new servicing apps with:

  • Drag-and-drop (re)configuration
  • Automatic app generator for Android and iOS
  • Range of wireless channels (NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi)
  • Configurable user profiles and access control
  • Configurable graphic displays & controls

 Portable or Fixed

Efficiency without compromising security

Leaving a Wi-Fi channel broadcasting 24/7 on your equipment only invites misuse and hacking. With NFC, technicians just tap to automatically connect the mobile device by Wi-Fi, secure the channel, and launch the correct app. NFC ‘tap-to-connect,’ and dynamic per-session encryption effectively counter ‘Man-in-the-Middle’ and ‘Denial-of-Service’ attacks that can put your equipment at risk and reduce maintenance efficiency.

With portable and fixed variants, TapNPass can be used as a tool accessory (by service personnel) or integrated as a permanent connection on the fieldbus of any system.

  • Fixed devices for permanent integration (powered by target system)
  • Nomad devices for support of multiple systems (self powered)
