Harting Releases Industrial IoT Starter Kits

Harting has announced three new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) starter kits. Each kit contains the necessary hardware and software for basic applications, Harting reports, enabling companies to embrace the IIoT. All three kits are available now, according to the company.

The first kit is the MICA CISS Complete IIoT Starter Kit, intended for basic condition-monitoring applications. It comes with a sensor that can measure seven parameters, including vibrations, acoustics, temperature, humidity and more. The sensor is connected to the Harting MICA, an edge-computing device that processes, computes and visualizes all data from the sensor. The MICA comes with pre-installed software, which includes a dashboard that shows all sensor readouts.

The MICA RF-R300 Complete RFID Starter Kit contains everything needed for a basic RFID asset-tracking application, the company reports: industrial RFID tags, a MICA RF-R300 reader, two antennas and cabling. The MICA comes with a pre-installed demo version of Harting's certified Ha-VIS middleware, which translates raw RFID signals into modern software protocols.

The third kit, the MICA Basic Ethernet Starter Kit, is designed for connecting peripheral devices via Ethernet using communications protocols such as Modbus-TCP or OPC UA. The kit contains the cabling required to get started, as well as a basic version of the MICA and software. As with the other two starter kits, it comes with Fast-Ethernet capabilities, eight digital GPIO ports, and the ability to be powered over PoE or 12V/24V.
