HARTING industrial-suited Edge Computer MICA comes with a secondary Ethernet interface and it can be used to easily exchange and process data between two Ethernet protocols, including wired-to-wireless gateway applications. It is necessary with many Industrie 4.0 applications to separate networks and simply send data back and forth between Ethernet protocols without permitting external applications direct access to a corporate network. A second interface has been added for these applications to the Edge Computing MICA. An additional USB interface can be used for adding further capabilities or a USB storage device. This is because, unlike a router, MICA can also carry out complex data transformations and aggregations.

The industrial-grade edge computer MICA is now also available with a secondary Ethernet interface.
