TapNLink NFC

The TapNLink Duetware-based NFC modules provide a contactless interface for linking mobile devices to equipment and appliances. Using TapNLink NFC 3-stroke configuration, users interact with appliances from an app on their mobile in three intuitive steps: 1) tap to launch the app and retrieve current parameters, 2) modify parameters in the app, and 3) tap again to update the parameters.

TapNLink connects directly to a systems' microcontroller or circuitry. Thanks to TapNLink's power optimization and Energy Harvesting mode, it can be powered either entirely by a mobile device during NFC communication, or by the target system's power supply.

All TapNLink products are easily configured to control access to data in the target system by different types of users. With our Automatic App Generator, TapNLink facilitates rapid creation of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) that run on Android, iOS and Windows mobiles. These HMI apps are easily customized for different users and can be deployed and updated easily to keep pace with evolving system requirements and user needs.
