A passive diagnostics solution that can be used around the clock

The EtherTAP2 is a monitoring interface that enables the in-depth analysis of PROFINET and EtherNet/IP traffic. Just like its highly popular predecessor, it acts as a bridge between your industrial network and the Anybus Osiris diagnostics platform.

However, its newly designed housing and improved functionality guarantee the early detection of communication errors and give round-the-clock access to passive diagnostics.

Upgrading the EtherTAP’s housing – which is based on the Atlas2 Plus – has turned this handy plug-and-play solution into an effective permanent monitoring solution. First, it’s designed to be permanently installed on a DIN rail. It now fits neatly side-by-side with your Atlas2 Plus. Second, it improves heat dissipation in the cabinet, reducing the risk of overheating and boosting efficiency.
