Bosch and Harting pool their expertise to offer a Plug & Play industrial IoT kit that allows digital condition monitoring of any kind of machinery, extremely quickly and using very few movements.
Digital condition monitoring based on physical measurements (such as temperature or vibration) is an efficient method for continuously monitoring and improving availability and reducing the downtimes for machines and facilities. This method enables any changes in machine behavior to be detected and the appropriate actions to be taken.
The MICA CISS Industrial IoT Kit now provides an IIoT solution that can be installed in a few hours which delivers initial data immediately. The kit consists of the multi-sensor unit CISS (Connected Industrial Sensor Solution) from Bosch and the MICA Edge Computing System from 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 right next to the machine (IP67). A control cabinet is not necessary. MICA is connected to the sensor unit and the local network via industry standard connectors. Immediately after startup, the sensor data is provided in MQTT format and displayed in the web browser via the integrated Node-RED dashboard. Data can basically be analysed and stored in any IT systems or IoT platforms. A connector for Microsoft Azure Cloud is already pre-installed. Local data storage is also possible: MICA can be supplemented with various database software for this purpose.
