AIS Releases a 12.1" Rugged Vehicle Computer Featuring a Built-in Smart Battery Backup and High Brightness Touch Screen Display for the Harsh Environments
IRVINE, CA -- American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS), introduces a 12.1" Rugged Vehicle Computer designed to reliably operate in strong vibration, extreme temperatures, dusty and harsh environmental conditions. The HMI Vehicle PC features a built-in UPS battery back-up system, capable of sustaining the unit for up to 30 minutes in the event of loss of power. This is ideal for delayed system shutdown for data transmission, mission critical applications, and logging application. A 1000 nit high brightness LCD display provides sharp crisp images in direct sunlight, for superior indoor and outdoor performance. The ultra-rugged vehicle display is available commercially off the shelf (COTS), enabling immediate deployment and reduce time to market.
A rugged aluminum alloy housing protects the internal components; meeting Military Standard 810F specs for anti-shock and vibration requirements. The front bezel is sealed to IP65 compliant water and dustproof standards. Powering the rugged computer is a high performance fanless Intel Celeron M processor and GM45 chipset, designed for long product life cycle and reliable operation in industrial conditions. The ruggedized system is capable of withstanding -10 to 55 degrees Celsius operating temperatures and compliant with Military 810F standards for anti-shock, vibration, and drop; providing a robust vehicle mounted system in extreme environments.
Staying connected is simple with built-in dual gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless support, and a wide array of I/O connections on the rear for external peripherals. AIS' vehicle computer system accepts a wide voltage range input, 9 to 28V for easy deployment into a variety of transportation vehicles. AIS' commercially available touchscreen vehicle computer provides a cost effective, long life cycle system for logistics, warehousing, vehicles, transportation, and industrial industries where performance and reliability are paramount.
