HARTING IIC MICA (Modular Industry Computing Architecture) makes it possible to temporarily save, evaluate and process data in the immediate vicinity of machinery and equipment. With its modular open platform, the HARTING IIC MICA can be customized with custom hardware, software and interfaces – to suit your individual requirements for Integrated Industry.
With dimensions of 13 x 8 x 3.5 cm, MICA is extremely compact and fits on the DIN rail in the electrical cabinet. It can also be installed discreetly and directly at the machine or facility. To optimize network connectivity, the front bezel can be customized with the proper connectors to fit your application.
MICA is unshakeable. The system is designed for harsh industrial and railway environments. The MICA has no fan and is maintenance-free. It can be used in metallic environments and is resistant to dust, moisture and temperature fluctuations (IP67). Remote servicing for the MICA can be performed with a web browser.
MICA is a modular platform made from open hardware and software components. Unlike single-board computers – such as the Raspberry Pi – this circuit board is divided into three parts. One of these parts can be customized. The form factor and degree of protection remain unchanged after hardware adjustments.
Software applications run in virtual, Linux-based containers (virtual machines) which contain all the necessary libraries and drivers for the respective application So there are no more problems with package dependencies and incompatibilities.
MICA´s open source approach permits the user to choose the programming language and development environment.
