The HARTING MICA CISS (Connected Industrial Sensor Solution) IIoT kit is a plug-and-play system which allows fast digital condition monitoring of multiple sensor inputs. Offering IP54 protection makes suitable for factory environments as well as for prototyping and evaluation.

The MICA CISS IIoT kit integrates a Bosch CISS multiple sensor unit with a MICA edge computer. Installing and configuring the software only requires a few easy steps.

The CISS sensor unit can be installed on any surface and can measure up to eight physical parameters: temperature; humidity; vibration; change of position; pressure; light; magnetic field; and acoustics. The IP67-rated MICA computer can be installed right next to machinery, without the need for a control cabinet.

Sensor data is displayed in MQTT format via the integrated browser-based Node-Red dashboard. Data can be analysed and stored in any IT system or IoT platform. A Microsoft Azure Cloud gateway is preinstalled and configured using NodeRed.

RS offers several options to power the MICA CISS IIoT kit. A simple M8 A-coded power lead (RS part no. 111-3557) works if a power supply is available. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) plugtop power supply (RS part no. 765-3345, multiregion capable) and an RJ45 Ethernet cable (RS part no. 843-6511) are ideal if a benchtop power supply is not available. Those with a 48 V power source should purchase a DC/DC PoE enabled industrial hub (RS part no. 843-9190).
