TIPNet is an advanced networking capability available for the Rapiscan® Systems 600 series X-ray screening systems running TIP.
TIPNet helps ensure the effective use of these systems by providing an easy-to-learn, easy-to-operate multi-system monitoring, reporting and configuration management tool.
TIPNet allows supervisors to run Threat Image Projection (TIP) on multiple X-ray systems from one central network computer.
On a standalone X-ray system, TIP software logs individual operator results and will provide various supervisor generated reports. However, when multiple systems are networked together, the TIP management software provides a comprehensive reporting tool across the complete network of systems. It provides feature-rich supervisory controls and reporting functions to continually improve the performance of large checkpoint screening installations. TIP settings are received from the server in real time allowing changes globally through the network. In addition, the data generated by each X-ray system is uploaded to the central database in real time. Among many advanced features of TIPNet, a built-in redundancy function allows all networked X-ray systems to continue the TIP operation in a stand alone mode, if the network connection is broken. Once the connection has been re-established the locally recorded TIP data will be automatically be updated to the server.
