Mini computer wins Hermes Award

25 May 2016

A mini-industrial computer from Harting won this year's Hermes Award for industrial innovation, which is presented annually by the Hannover Messe event organisers.

The Harting MICA (Modular Industry Computing Architecture), developed by subsidiary HARTING IT Software Development, is an open and modular platform that functions as a core component consisting of embedded hardware and software for Industry 4.0. The Hermes Award judges were impressed by its concept of lightweight virtualisation using LINUX containers, which the MICA achieves in a compact field device.

The device brings intelligence to existing machinery and systems, making it possible to migrate an existing factory towards becoming a smart factory, giving the opportunity for many SMEs to cost-effectively enter the world of Industry 4.0.
