Attached to the Raspberry Pi mainboard is a Dragino Lora/GPS HAT daughterboard. The Dragino HAT provides a LoRaWAN network capability to the Server for connecting to Internet of Things sensors and actuators, and to GPS for location and time synchronisation. Currently (i/2019) Umukuri utilises only the GPS functionality.
The Server has the following six physical interfaces:
For operating system the Server is running the December 2018 release of Inverter Control Centre (ICC) from ICC Software. ICC is merely the most recent distribution of OpenEnergyMonitor with ICC's proprietary ICC application preconfigured. OpenEnergyMonitor's distribution itself is merely a derivative of the Raspbian Linux distribution.
For applications the Server is running a variety of generic application software including a LAMP stack comprising a MySQL database and Lighttpd web server, and a graphical user interface on top of X11.
The proprietary ICC application requires a hardware-locked key to operate. The Machine ID is $6812D735 The key owned by Umukuri is m7C+OjcP1vxuiArTlX9VUEKaVPF
The key for the advanced power management add-on should be one of these: hvUGD9/HmQOo3CqVxZ9m7n+sRjE Tm2f/By0L4lxq8CuCWUv7hitmoO
Make: Raspberry Pi / Dragino LoRa/GPS HAT
Model: 2 Model B / 1.4
The Server is configured to operate perpetually. If its power supply is interrupted it should return to nominal operation once power is restored.

ICC are reluctant to migrate licences, restricting the feasibility of upgrading the server hardware without incurring software licensing costs.
