With the growing pressure on costs in virtually all processes, there is increasing need to also automate smaller stations in order to make better and yet more reliable use of existing equipment. Modern, high-performance automation systems allow the integration of smaller stations to provide universal and reliable management of complex processes.
SICAM MIC (Terminal Module for microcontrol) is a low-cost, modular, telecontrol substation and belongs to the proven SICAM automation family. The devices consist of a master control element and various I/O modules and are designed for DIN rail mounting. The master control element serves for the interfacing and supplying of the I/O modules and provides a telecommunications interface in accordance with IEC 60870-5-101 for dial-up or multi-point traffic. Alternatively LAN/WAN communication can be used, according to IEC 60870-5-104 over TCP/IP.
Integrated Web server for simple engineering
We placed great importance on keeping the engineering process as simple as possible. The master control element has an integrated web server for configuration, diagnostics and testing, so that no special tools or additional licenses are needed. The tool is already integrated in SICAM MIC and is operated with a standard Web browser.
Plug & Play for servicing and commissioning
The configuration parameters in SICAM MIC are already stored on an SIM card of the kind used in mobile phones. When commissioning or servicing, the configuration is simply transferred to the new device when the SIM card is inserted. Additional advantages of the SIM card are that all data is always available locally and there is no possibility of accidentally loading incorrect parameters (for example from a PC). Configuration is also possible with an offline tool without destination system hardware and can be carried out very simply at any desk. The fully written SIM card transfers the complete configuration into SICAM MIC. A Web browser is the only requirement for any changes or local tests. Alternatively, the engineering process can also be carried out with the SICAM TOOLBOX II.
SICAM MIC is a universal system suitable for electricity distribution stations, hydro-electric power stations, pipelines, gas distribution stations, railway power supplies and tunnels, and for building protection and alarm sensors
Simple configuration by means of integrated Web browser with no special tools or licenses, configuration, diagnostics and testing via integrated Web server

Communication via IEC 60870-5-101/104
analog or digital radio
DLC modem (Distribution Line Carrier)
analog telephone networks
TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio)
LAN (local area network)
WAN (wide area network), GPRS/EDGE
SICAM MIC can be operated optionally in multipoint or dial-up traffic, or via LAN/WAN networks. Transmission conforms to IEC 60870-5-101 or IEC 60870-5-104.
For transmission in multi-point traffic, external data transmission equipment can be connected via the V.28 interface. In this way it is possible, for example, to use power lines for communication by means of DLC modems.
A wide range of connection-oriented transmission media (analog, ISDN, GSM, TETRA) is supported as standard for dial-up traffic as well.
IEC 60870-5-104-compliant transmission based on Ethernet TCP/IP is used for communication via LAN/WAN networks. Configuration, diagnostics and testing are possible from any access point to the network including remote locations.
