The AutoPath module enables TAP™ to automate setting up path specifications eliminating manual data entry. The program can then plot a path profile for each specified path, as well as compute the field strength value at the end of the path. Path information can be defined from a single transmitter site, or for a different transmitter site for every path. The path information (end point coordinates, antenna heights, earth curvature, transmitter ERP, etc.) can be entered manually into TAP, or imported from another source, such as a spreadsheet or database. The AutoPath module allows the user to evaluate multiple path profiles simultaneously for applications ranging from simple relay networks to large scale networks including thousands of links. Applications include SCADA systems, ring networks, smart meters, mesh / field area networks, and more.
