AIS Expands Its Industrial Touchscreen Computers to Run on x86-64 Platform and Windows Embedded for HMI Applications
Press release date: May 03, 2012
o The high performance Intel Atom embedded processors along with a variety of standard interfaces and peripheral busses provide the flexibility needed to support diverse industrial automation environments.
o The Windows® Embedded powered solutions enable fast, economical deployment of improved human-machine interface (HMI) systems in manufacturing environments.
Irvine, California, American Industrial Systems Inc. AIS, is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of rugged touch screen computers powered by highly-integrated Intel Atom embedded processor combines video accelerators, graphics, display, memory controller and windows embedded standard operating system for Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications.
The HMI system requirements include increased processing needs and a wide range of network and peripheral interfaces, along with smaller sizes and tighter thermal budgets. The AIS open HMI panel PCs, powered by Intel Atom processor families with highly integrated system-on-a-chip (SoC) that include high performance IA 64 microprocessor along with a variety of standard interfaces and peripheral busses, provide the flexibility needed to support diverse industrial automation environments. The IA-64 architecture overcomes the performance limitations of traditional architectures and provides maximum headroom for future development. Intel's innovative 64-bit architecture allows greater instruction level parallelism through speculation, predication, large register files, a register stack, advanced branch architecture, and more. The 64-bit memory addressability meets the increasingly large memory footprint requirements of Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) applications.
The AIS open touch panel computer pre-installed windows embedded standard operating system provides unprecedented connectivity to other software products and third-party applications for monitoring and controlling automation machines, and process applications. The open HMI touch computer system allows plant-level workers and IT professionals to integrate real-time manufacturing and business information into a common, web-enabled visualization dashboard. The AIS touch HMI system suite includes several solutions that allow for connectivity from the plant floor to corporate business systems. It was designed from the ground up to take maximum advantage of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Microsoft .NET Framework, and Silverlight technology.
