TapNLink WiFi, BLE, NFC

The TapNLink Duetware-based modules provide wireless interfaces for linking electronic systems to mobile devices and to the cloud. TapNLink connects directly to the target system's microcontroller. It integrates into and is powered by the target system.

All TapNLink products are easily configured to control access by different types of users to data in the target system. 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.

The TapNLink Wi-Fi modules can also be configured to connect the target system permanently to wireless networks and the cloud. This enables permanent logging of target system data and alarms.
