tapio Connectivity

tapio CloudConnector

To make tapio a woodworking ecosystem, we needed a generic way, to send data from woodworking machines to the tapio ecosystem. We therefore created a piece of software, called the tapio CloudConnector. It gets installed either on a machine itself or on a windows computer, that's connected to the machine via ethernet and sends data to an Azure IoT Hub. Once the CloudConnector is configured via .xml configuration file, it's ready to send data.

An advanced documentation on the tapio CloudConnector can be found in the CloudConnector Documentation

Connection States

Since not every machine has an active CloudConnector installed, we introduced multiple states for a machine's connection. There are currently four types of connection states a machine can have in tapio

ActiveThe machine is able to connect to tapio through the CloudConnector.Active
In verificationtapio service needs to verify your machine and approve it.In verification
Not possibleYour machine is not able to connect to tapio.Not possible
LimitedYour machine has limited tapio functionality enabled. That usually means the machine has no active cloud connection but a user can e.g. create a ticket within tapio ServiceBoard for that machine.Limited
ErrorThere is an error with your machine. Reach out to the tapio support to resolve this issue.Error
