M2Xchange is a cross-manufacturer and inter-technology platform used to network the various participants in the process. The solution’s sub-components are used to integrate the most diverse types of participants.
Data collection in environmental applications demand durable solutions that require minimal setup effort and can be adapted to changing requirements. Using HARTING’s MICA as its gateway, the BASe-Net sensor network platform developed at IMMS provides a versatile solution for both temporary field measurements and long-term monitoring of environmental parameters.
A machine should communicate via OPC UA with an industrial PC, but both are incompatible. A MICA with an OPC UA container as a client is used to create a quick solution by translating between the devices.
