Harting's three Industrial Internet of Things starter kits contain sets of hardware and software for a basic application.

According to the company, the sets take less than 10 minutes to get a solution up and running.

The first set is the Harting MICA CISS Complete IIoT Starter Kit for a basic condition-monitoring application. It comes with a sensor that can measure seven different parameters, including vibrations, acoustics, temperature, humidity and more. The sensor is connected to the Harting MICA, the edge-computing device that processes, computes and visualizes all the data from the sensor. The Harting MICA comes with pre-installed software.

The Harting MICA RF-R300 Complete RFID Starter Kit contains components for a basic RFID asset tracking application – industrial RFID tags, the Harting MICA RF-R300 reader, two antennas and all cabling. The Harting MICA comes with a pre-installed demo version of Harting's certified Ha-VIS Middleware, which translates the raw RFID signals formats into modern software protocols.

The third kit is the Harting MICA Basic Ethernet Starter Kit. This one is able to connect peripheral devices through Ethernet using communications protocols such as Modbus-TCP or OPC UA. The kit contains all of the cabling required to get started and a basic version of the Harting MICA and software. As with the other two starter kits, this one comes with Fast-Ethernet capabilities, eight digital GPIO ports, and the ability to be powered over PoE or 12V/24V.
