NFC enables advanced functionality on its own or as a complement to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
The Tap wireless and contactless solutions implement a passive Near Field Communication device (a.k.a. a tag). This tag is powered by the mobile device when it is within 3 cm.
Implemented on its own in our contactless modules, the NFC tag serves as the principle communication channel with mobile devices for 3-stroke equipment configuration:
- 1st Stroke: communication is established and parameters are read
- 2nd Stroke: the user changes parameter settings on the mobile HMI
- 3rd Stroke: the user transfers the updated parameters to the equipment
NFC is also present in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules, where it can be used as the principle channel of communication, or to wake up, secure and pair the connection another wireless channel.
