HARTING offers customer-specific Industry 4.0 solutions at SPS

HARTING will show how the Infrastructure Box (left) and MICA can be used in the Industry 4.0 application area.

The HARTING Technology Group will once again be showing its innovative products and solutions in Hall 10, Stand 140 at this year's SPS IPC Drives trade fair to be held in Nurnberg from 24 to 26 November 2015. HARTING will be presenting further HAII4YOU Factory developments, with the MICA and Infrastructure Box playing a special role.

MICA (Modular Industry Computing Architecture) will be given a special focus at SPS. HARTING will be offering HARTING IIC MICA, a modular platform comprising open hardware and software that can be quickly and economically adapted to many industrial application areas. This saves the customer time and money.

The Technology Group will also be presenting its Infrastructure Box, which shows the development from a switch cabinet configuration with top-hat-rail-based devices to a highly integrated device design. Customers will consequently be capable of flexible networking for machines and systems in line with the Industry 4.0 concept in the future.

HARTING will additionally be presenting the Embedded Transponder Base (ETB) at the SPS. In the Industry 4.0 environment, this is the interface to things that do not have their own IP address. This will consequently also allow goods and containers as well as tools or other carriers to be seen, recognised and controlled directly by higher level processes. Going beyond this identity, the ETB is able to run diverse binary sensors completely self-sufficiently and to convey their values through the wireless interface.
