MICA used to provide a robust and compact industrial grade solution to connect machines to Cloud environment. Using MICA as a gateway enables machine vendors to monitor the delivered equipment online and support customers better.
By combining smart industry apps and MICA, the conventional MES and production IT functions can be executed directly on the shop floor. This solution enables you to implement the entire infrastructure, right up to the cloud and end-to-end processes, in a hybrid architecture.
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.
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.
