The MICA CISS Industrial IoT Kit is operational within a day and supplies initial data immediately. The kit comprises a CISS (Connected Industrial Sensor Solution) multi-sensor unit by Bosch and the MICA Edge Computing System by Harting.
Only a few steps are necessary to start the application. The small CISS sensor unit can be attached to any surface (IP54) and detects up to eight physical factors, including temperature, humidity, vibration, change of position, pressure, light, magnetic field and acoustics. The robust MICA mini-computer can also be installed alongside the machine (IP67) without the need for a control cabinet. MICA is connected to the sensor unit and the local network via industry standard connectors. Immediately after start up, the sensor data is provided in MQTT format and displayed in the web browser, via the integrated Node-RED dashboard. Data can be analysed and stored in any IT systems or IoT platforms and a connector for Microsoft Azure Cloud is already pre-installed. Local data storage is also possible as MICA can be supplemented with various database software to meet the specific requirements.
