IIoT Starter Kits
Harting’s MICA starter kits provide all hardware/software needed to simple IIoT applications.0
HARTING launched three variants of its MICA starter kits. The packages include all the necessary hardware and software to implement a basic IIoT application. The HARTING MICA CISS Complete IIoT Starter Kit, for example, creates a basic condition-monitoring application. It comes with a sensor that can measure seven different parameters, including vibrations, acoustics, temperature, humidity and more. The sensor is connected to the HARTING MICA, the edge-computing device that processes, computes and visualizes all the data from the sensor. The MICA comes with pre-installed software that includes an easy to use dashboard that shows all of the sensor readouts.
The HARTING MICA RF-R300 Complete RFID Starter Kit contains everything needed for a basic RFID asset tracking application – industrial RFID tags, the HARTING MICA RF-R300 reader, two antennas and all cabling. The MICA comes with a pre-installed demo version of HARTING’s certified Ha-VIS Middleware, which translates the raw RFID signals formats into modern software protocols.
Last but not least, the HARTING MICA Basic Ethernet Starter Kit is designed for connecting peripheral devices through Ethernet using communications protocols such as Modbus-TCP or OPC UA. The kit contains all cabling required and a basic version of the MICA and software. As with the other starter kits, this one comes with Fast-Ethernet capabilities, eight digital GPIO ports and the ability to be powered over PoE or 12V/24V.
