MICA® as a universal link between machines, cloud and IoT platforms

Retrofit sensors for problem-free Plug&Play condition monitoring

recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - Data from machines and processes are the basis for performance increases and an optimised material flow. Together with partner companies and customers, HARTING will be at the HANNOVER MESSE (1 - 5 April 2019 / hall 11/ stand C15) to demonstrate how data from processes, sensors and controllers can be used to get the best out of production.

When it comes to the production environments of automotive suppliers, the traceability (track & trace) of individual parts as they make their way through processes ? e.g. in CNC machining ? is playing an increasingly important role. Collected data must be thoroughly analysed to effect process optimisation and quality control. This is where the HARTING Edge Computer MICA"FabEagle" line controller and forms the core component for production control within this constellation. The Dresden-based company is one of 15 partner companies that is presenting its expertise with regard to Industry 4.0 and IIoT at the HARTING stand within the MICA.network user organisation.

Retrofit sensors for easy plug-and-play condition monitoring in one packageThe Munich education startup University4Industry has used a steam-driven engine, symbol for Industry 1.0, as an example of a brownfield machine and equipped it with sensors, a controller and the MICA

AKQUINET is using a simple example to present how process relevant sensor data is integrated with MICAtry out live at the stand. The vibrations are detected by the Bosch CISS sensor and the data processed and visualised in MICA.

Infotecs is also bringing a similar demonstrator that enhances the condition monitoring with its security solution that protects the communication using the ViPNet coordinator for MICA

Injection moulding machine produces plastic parts ? and lots of dataAn Arburg injection moulding machine at the HARTING stand will not only produce plastic parts but also supply lots of data. By means of this real example, HARTING in collaboration with ARBURG and the IT service provider PCO, is showing how energy readings as well as environmental conditions can be used for monitoring product qualities and signs of wear. Moreover, the latest solutions in the area of RFID-based tool identification are being introduced as well as software solutions for IT integration of older machines and protocols from the most varied manufacturers.



The Cybus Connectware uses "Profinet Sniffing" to make the widely used Ethernet protocol easy to use universally for every application. This makes the required data usable on the Profinet level, without having to deal laboriously with the controller (PLC). Moreover, the high transmission rates of Profinet can be used to detect workpieces by means of picker arm variables based on machine learning for instance. The procedure is extremely robust and with MICA can even be used in the most demanding environments. The software solution goes perfectly here with the new MICAvariant with a secondary Ethernet interface. This enables two Ethernet networks that are separate from each other to interact securely.

Digitization requires appropriate infrastructure

The digitalisation of business operations is not a surefire success and above all also requires a corresponding infrastructure in the form of a high-performance IoT platform, along with multifunctional Edge devices such as MICAh. Together with HARTING, T-Systems is developing a solution package for the acquisition and pre-processing of sensor data in industrial applications and a data connection to the IoT platform via mobile communications.

Also Amazon''s Cloud Service AWS offers comprehensive services for data processing, IoT management and for business processes. Here SIC Software, a certified AWS consulting partner and the newest member of the MICA.network, is demonstrating how MICA is suitable as a data pre-processor and gateway for AWS applications.

Uniform, standardised cloud connectivity is the goal of the standardisation initiative "Industrial Cloud Federation" in which Expleo is active and demonstrating with a demonstrator at the HARTING stand in an exemplarily way. A second demonstrator at the HARTING stand, the HAII4You smart factory is also connected as part of the Cloud Federation. The use case is to record the data from the installed robots and the subsequent condition monitoring within the SmartANIMO application from Expleo. MICA functions here as a gateway to provide machine data preprocessed in the standard protocol for OPC UA cloud systems. Expleo was born from joining the well known IT service provider Assystem and SQS into one global brand with over 14,000 employees in 25 countries.

The company m2Xpert develops platforms which brings together information from different corporate divisions and analyses them in their respective customer context. Data from ERP systems, machines and other applications are correlated. The strengths of MICA are used in the use case shown by m2Xpert. MICA

With the server- or cloud-based IoT platform pst from M2MGo, B2B2C portals and applications can be made by drag & drop without programming effort. Device data and
