Harting expands MICA industrial computer family

Harting has expanded its MICA industrial computer family with the addition of dedicated wireless and energy versions as well as a range of kits which can be equipped and assembled by the customer with their own function boards.

The new models have been developed from practical real-world applications and suggestions from the MICA customer group.

The MICA 2 features a dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC (Embedded Multi-Media Card) that offer 3-5 times the computing power of the MICA Basic.

The MICA Wireless combines the computing power of the MICA 2 with integrated interfaces for wireless communication including GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS without occupying the function board. This creates a highly flexible solution for data acquisition and communication without the need for cabling.

With the MICA Energy, data from electric meters and current transformers can be read, compressed and routed to MES and ERP systems. By integrating the OpenSource InfluxDB time series database and the dashboard software Grafana, analysis and visualisation can also be performed directly on the MICA.

The integrated software allows both the creation of browser-based solutions and the development of solutions featuring qt (Software Library).

For OEMs and customers who want to create their own solutions, Harting now also offers MICA kits which can be equipped and assembled with their own function boards. 3D and layout data for development are available free of charge.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
