The netTAP 100 can be configured to be a master or slave on either end. The configuration software for the master side is an enhanced version of SYCON.net which is an FDT/DTM based tool. A standard USB port is used for configuration along with loading network firmware and diagnostics. The netTAP 100 also supports the use of a Muti-Media Flash card or SD-card for storage of configuration data. This allows configuration data to be easily duplicated or transferred to multiple netTAPs on a network.
Development tools are also available that allow third parties to develop custom protocol gateways utilizing any one of our stacks and gateway application to their own protocol. These protocols would need to be based on any of the standard available hardware supported by netX including; serial, Ethernet, PROFIBUS or CAN based interfaces.
