AIS Introduces Rugged, Fan-Less Touch Panel PCs With Intel® Core™ i7 Processor, True Flat Touch-Screen and IP66 Protection for Human Machine Interfaces Used in Process & Automation Industries

AIS's Premium HMI Come Standard With a Stainless Steel Bezel for Operation in a Wide Variety of Process Industries Including: Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, Food & Beverage, and Water & Wastewater

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 19, 2015) - American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) open platform HMI designer and industry leader with a comprehensive portfolio of Industrial HMIs, Touch Panel Computers, Industrial PCs (IPCs), Industrial Box PCs, Industrial DIN-Rail PCs, and Industrial Thin Clients, showcases their Premium Series family of HMIs Touchscreens. The flagship series integrated HMIs feature modularity, serviceability and maintenance-free operation. The Premium family of Touch Panel PCs from AIS feature a powerful Intel® i7™ Core processor (4m Cache up to 3.30 GHz), RAID high availability storage, PCIe expansion slot, fan-less construction, true flat screen design and NEMA 4/IP66 compliant stainless steel front bezel for superior corrosion and chemical resistance. Consistent with all of AIS's industrial and commercial HMIs, the Premium series of Touch Panels are based on their flexible, open architecture platform and design for web-enabled HMI applications. The series comes standard with Windows Embedded Standard 7/8.

A Powerful Processor Load Delivering "No Compromise" Automation, Control & Monitoring and X86 PC-Based Platform for Industrial, Factory Automation and Process Control Industries

Widely regarded as the most powerful commercially available processor, the AIS Premium Series utilizes Intel's 6th generation series of Intel Core i7 Processor. The built-in revolutionary Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology allows each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time for smoother multitasking while Intel® Iris™ graphics delivers stunning 3D visuals and faster, more advanced video and photo editing. High-speed computing power for processing extremely large data sets are required in advanced HMI, SCADA, MES and ERP applications. The speed and power of the i7 from Intel makes the Premium suitable for the most complex and demanding tasks for industrial process automation, control and monitoring in process industries such as Food & Beverage, Chemical Processing, Cosmetics, Healthcare Packaging, Pharmaceutical and Water & Wastewater. The process industries are those industries where the primary production processes are either continuous, or occur on a batch of materials that is indistinguishable. For example, a food processing company making sauce may make the sauce in a continuous, uninterrupted flow from receipt of ingredients through packaging.

AIS's Process Control HMI Solutions are designed for Open, SCADA Systems, Batch and Recipe Automation and Management Operations in Process Plants

Consistent product quality, production traceability and the ability to reproduce the process are all key requirements for process industries and control applications. Changing consumer demands coupled with stricter regulations, dictate the selection of HMI automation, control and monitoring equipment that is affordable, flexible and scalable. AIS's open platform, Premium Industrial HMIs offer system modularity for easy affordability, upgradeability and scalability ideal for ongoing and changing requirements common with process control industries. Its system modularity, serviceable system components and high system reliability also helps end-users to reduce maintenance, repair and service costs for lower TCO. Combined with 3rd party SCADA control software, AIS's scalable Premium Touch-Panel PCs can be configured for a single-user station, all the way up to redundant, multi-client server applications; from small food and beverage plants, to small laboratories to high production pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and plants. AIS's Premium Series touchscreens are the most advanced and adaptable HMI solution for challenging process control applications.

Solving Process Control and Batch Automation Challenges with AIS's Robust, Premium Series of Open, Industrial Touch-Panel PCs

The Premium HMI from AIS helps Food, Beverage & Packaging end-users and manufacturers solve process and batch automation challenges: create and edit recipes, monitor and control batches, plan production orders, log batches and recipes and much more. Its graphical and visually powerful touch screen provides a clear, graphical user interface to operators, which helps facilitate all batch-relevant tasks including updating plant data for automation, the management of master recipes and creation of batches.

Rugged Construction, Stainless Steel Bezel and NEMA 4X/IP66 Protection Makes the Premium Series HMI Able to Withstand Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, and Health Care Packaging Environments

Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, Personal Care Products and Healthcare Packaging industries have especially strict product consistency, safety and sanitary regulations for control and monitoring equipment, primarily due to their challenging environmentals. AIS's Premium Series HMIs come standard with IP66 protection, UL Listing, CE marking and CB Scheme and stainless steel bezel for corrosion and chemical resistance. Packaged in a virtually a gap less housing design with flush-mounted touchscreen, its housing geometry and optimized frame profile allows liquid run off, thereby preventing accumulation and contamination. Available in a full selection of industrial flat touch-screen displays sizes ranging from 15" to 24", AIS Premium Series HMIs improve processes and enable consistent delivery of high quality products at the lowest cost for industrial and process industries.
