AIS's Industrial Panel PCs With Modular Design Platforms Include a Wide Range of Embedded PCs and Touch Displays Solutions for Automation and Control Systems Applications

AIS's Modular Panel PCs Offer Customers Flexibility, Scalability and Customization With Their Choice of Intel® Core™ i7 and Atom™ Based IPCs, and 12.0" to 24.0" Monitor Components for Both HMI and SCADA Applications

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) an innovator, designer and manufacturer of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Touch Panels, Operator Interface Terminals, Industrial Box PCs, Web Thin Clients and Industrial Monitors, offers Modular Industrial Panel PCs, IPCs and Embedded Touchscreen PCs available as both HMI components and turnkey modular automation systems for OEM and End-Users customers. The incredible flexibility, serviceability and modularity of AIS's HMI Embedded Touch Panel PCs provide customers many performance and cost-saving advantages including: complete HMI control and monitoring system customization to fit their own unique application requirements; fast and easy integration, installation and deployment; increased system uptime and system reliability for higher OEE, lower maintenance and service costs and reduced supply chain costs for the lowest TCO.

Customers can assemble and select the ideal control, monitoring and automation solution based upon their exact system requirements and specifications, from simple HMI to complex SCADA and MES plant applications with AIS's family of Modular Touch Panel PCs and Embedded Industrial Computers. They have maximum flexibility to build and specify system components and/or HMI solutions with multiple options. Choose from their Premium or Standard Box PC (same computing unit found in AIS's intelligent series of integrated, turnkey Premium HMI solutions) with choice of Intel i7 or Atom processor, analog resistive single-touch and projected capacitive multi-touch displays only, or an entire HMI solution with embedded and pre-tested visualization solutions including open PC and touch panel interface.

AIS's Premium and Standard Series of HMI Modular Touch Panels Are Pre-Engineered and Pretested Embedded Systems that Deliver Faster Time to Market for Automation Gateways, SCADA and MES

AIS's most advanced family of touch panel PCs, embedded PCs and industrial computers feature a pre-engineered, modular design and build. Engineered around AIS's popular and proven open architecture platform, the Premium and Standard Series HMIs are highly flexible and scalable systems, which make them expandable by changing the computing power of the PC engine and the size of display. HMI functionality is common throughout the entire family of Smart Touch Panels. Using common components and modular systems in AIS's Premium and Standard Series of Modular Touch Panels and Embedded PCs reduces engineering and design costs. They are fully pre-engineered, pre-tested which allows customers to accelerate deployment for automation gateways, SCADA and MES applications, thereby improving plant and factory productivity and efficiency.

AIS's Modular HMI and SCADA system approach was first introduced in their Smart, integrated series of touch panel PCs, including the Premium and Standard Series HMIs. OEMs and End-Users can select and build their own system utilizing Intel's most powerful processor, the Core i7 for more intensive data applications and data collection, analysis and processing, or their Atom-based IPCs with improved energy handling and cost efficiency. Customers also have a wide selection of touchscreen and touch panel interfaces to build their perfect HMI and SCADA control and monitoring system ranging from 12.0" to 24.0" in screen size. In addition, customers can count on an extensive variety of interface connections and networking connectivity options necessary for M2M, IIoT and Industry 4.0 applications.

With Comprehensive Certifications and Compliances for Monitoring and Control Systems Applications, AIS's Modular HMI Touch Panel PCs Reduce Engineering, Testing and Designing Requirements

AIS invests significant capital, resources and effort to test, obtain and meet all the necessary standards, compliances and certifications, which help customers quickly and easily install, commission and deploy their AIS HMI and SCADA solutions in even the most challenging environmental. This helps reduce engineering time, product testing and additional design work, which translates into real bottom-line savings passed along to AIS's customers. AIS's comprehensive list of certifications and compliances for their Premium and Standard family of modular IPCs include: UL listing, CE marking & CB Scheme, RoHS, FCC and CE compliant.

AIS's Embedded Panel PCs Designed with Open and Standardized Interfaces in Hardware and Software, and IoT Communication Protocols for Advancing Industry 4.0 and IIot Applications

AIS's Premium and Standard Series Modular Touch Panels and Embedded Computers allow for transfer and communication of data over an Intranet, Internet or WAN with security, ease-of-use and maintainability in process control and automation environments. With their open architecture system design, AIS' Embedded Panels PCs communicate directly with HMI, SCADA, MES, DCS or ICS applications. These intelligent, open, flexible and standardized interfaces from AIS support Open Platform Communications (OPC UA), Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and Representational State Transfer (REST), IoT protocols and web-based software necessary for Industry 4.0, M2M and IIoT applications.
