MICA Edge Computer now with a secondary Ethernet interface

Edge Computer
Harting has added a second interface to its MICA Edge Computing device for Industry 4.0 applications. An additional USB interface can also be used for adding further capabilities or a USB storage device.

This is because, unlike a router, the MICA Edge Computer can also carry out complex data transformations and aggregations. The secondary Ethernet interface is provided via the functional circuit board and expands the modular system of the MICA platform. In particular, MICA Wireless with WLAN, BLE and LTE connectivity with an additional Ethernet interface is an easy to manage and compact solution for many projects in the areas of industry and transportation.

For example, it can be used as a wired-to-wireless gateway for collecting maintenance data from PLCs and to send relevant events to the machine manufacturer or maintenance services. In addition, MICA Wireless can process nodes for RFID readers connected via WLAN. When used in this way, many RFID readers send data that evaluates the tags and feeds them in via Ethernet to the corporate network. Finally, it’s also possible to monitor remote systems via Ethernet and transmit the data as needed in a compressed format worldwide via LTE or via BLE to Ethernet gateways or railway embankment applications where Ethernet capable PLCs and RFID readers are also increasingly being used.
