Edge Computing System MICA integrates wireless sensors

Cooperation with Arrow Electronics / Cost-efficient monitoring
Together with Arrow Electronics, MICA Wireless Sensor Networks has now been developed to integrate wireless sensors (PresseBox) (Espelkamp, ) HARTING`s Edge Computing System MICA (Modular Industrial Computing Architecture) monitors machines and processes the generated data. To extend its capabilities further, HARTING has teamed with Arrow Electronics in developing a new MICA Wireless Sensor Networks solution that adds wireless communications functionality to the machine-monitoring system. This new solution will be launched at HARTING`s stand at the SPS IPC Drives trade show in Nuremberg (28 to 30 November; Hall 10 / Stand 140).

Arrow Electronics developed a module that communicates with sensors through various wireless protocols. With the additional module, HARTING MICA is now able to capture and process data through SmartMESH IP (DUST), Bluetooth Low Energy and a XBee slot, regardless of the existing machine control.

These transmission protocols have been selected to provide a variety of ways for wireless sensors to connect with HARTING MICA, either directly or through sensor nodes. The combination of wireless sensors and MICA allows simple and cost-efficient monitoring of existing machinery (condition monitoring). Data such as operating times, temperatures and numerous ambient parameters can be determined and monitored without a need to invest in cables, network or expensive industrial sensors.

Arrow is a member of the MICA.network. This network helps to connect specialized partners in order to implement IIoT projects (Industrial Internet of Things) quickly and easily.

MICA is a modular, open edge computing system that can be easily adapted to individual requirements in manufacturing companies. MICA also supports traditional industrial interfaces such as Profinet, Ethernet IP, Ethercat, Modbus, energy monitoring solutions, analysis and RFID.
