HARTING to introduce MICA with EtherCAT at SPS IPC Drives
November 21, 2016 --- HARTING will be exhibiting first MICA product prototypes with EtherCAT connectivity at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg.
Data can be captured directly from industrial production networks via two M8 connectors, then pre-processed and transmitted to higher-level systems and cloud applications via various standard protocols such as OPC-UA and MQTT.
MICA’s modular Open Source Software Architecture makes it a solution for developing edge and cloud applications in production. Creating the EtherCAT functionality as an internal MICA function module enables MICA to deliver further benefits, such as protection class IP67, connectors suitable for industrial use and compliance with major industry standards. The first EtherCAT production model will be available at the beginning of 2017.
