AIS Releases Operator Panels featuring PC-Based Automation Technology for Industrial Automation, Process Control and Machinery Applications

IRVINE, CA -- American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS), has unveiled a new line of Industrial Automation Panel PC's featuring the fanless Intel® Atom Z series processors and LED backlit displays for ultra-low power consumption operation. AIS' Industrial LED backlit Panel PC line is available in several mechanical designs including Open Frame, Panel Mount, IP65/NEMA 4 Sealed Front Bezel, and Chassis configurations, ranging in sizes from 5.7" to 15" sizes. All features are packaged in a compact form factor housing which is easily deployed into buildings and factories for industrial operator panels, home automation control, PC-based PLC's, Heating Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) control, Lighting Management, Building Control and Security.

As the industrial market place moves toward power efficiency and green manufacturing, LED backlights and low power consumption systems have become the standard. LED backlit displays offer long life, high durability, and low power consumption compared to standard CCFL backlights. AIS' industrial grade panel pc's are designed to be reliable, long lifetime support and availability, high performance, easily programmable and accessed supporting a non-proprietary-hardware based solution. Additional options such as sunlight readable Transflective films, privacy films, touch screens, wide voltage range boards, Power over Ethernet (PoE), wide temperature range modules, and shock/vibration enhancements are all but a few of AIS' line of enhancement technologies to cater the display to your exact application requirements.

As the nation moves toward high efficiency smart grid technology, providing two way communication between appliances and system automation control panel pc's is essential. The automation systems actively monitor, control, and change the operation of electrically powered devices such as lighting, Heating Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC), and electrical generation to maximize efficiency. Whether the panel pc system is to control a factory, warehouse, or house, AIS' HMI low power consumption PC line can provide a solution.
