MICA Hardware

MICA is IP67 with high EMC, a configurable function-based circuit board, and industrial connectors. This is all housed within  a secure and compact enclosure, which protects against dust, oil, splashes, shock and vibration. Both tough and versatile, MICA does not use fans, and is suitable for use in industrial and railway applications.

Circuit Boards with Modular function

There are three circuit boards  within MICA:

  • Supply board with power supply, network connection and 24V GPIO
  • Processor board with CPU, memory, eMMC and microSD slot
  • Configurable custom function-based board

These are individually connected by a support bracket and use a USB to communicate.

Advantages:

  • There is a reduced cost of developing new devices – only need to develop and produce individual circuit boards
  • Each component is developed by specialists and manufactured with customised technology
  • Software developed at the same time

Key Features:

  • 132mm x 86mm x 35mm
  • 1GHz ARM Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB eMMC
  • Up to 32GB microSD card
  • Industrial Connectors
  • GPIO
  • 12 – 24V or PoE power supply
  • Configurable function-based circuit board
  • Standards based design (Linux, LXC, USB)

Interfaces and Power Supply

Eight freely configurable GPIOs are available on the MICA, with either PoE or 12 – 24VDC power supply. Also available are an RFID reader and USB PushPull connector.

Enclosure and Front Panel

With IP67 protection, the die-cast aluminium enclosure provides protection from harsh environments. Direct mounting is possible on machines, vehicles or on production lines. The MICA is suitable for use where temperature fluctuations, humidity, vibration, dust and dirt may occur. It is possible to mount the MICA onto a DIN rail using an adapter.

Which MICA is right for me?

MICA is available as MICA Basic – with a custom configurable function-based circuit board for making versatile hardware adjustments.

Or as MICA USB – with two IP67 PushPull USB ports already built in to the function board.
