AIS Modular HMI Panel PC Systems Designed with Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 Open Standards for MES and EMI Software and Service Applications

AIS’s Open Platform, Industrial PCs and HMI Panels Are Designed in Compliance with Internet Protocol Suite to Connect to ISA-95 Level 2 Enterprise Control, SCADA, DCS and Batch Automation Systems

Modular HMI Panels and Touch Screen Industrial PCs IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – February 1, 2016 – American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) an innovator and the leader of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Panels, Operator Interface Terminals, Industrial PCs, and Industrial Thin Clients, announces their Modular, Smart HMI PC Systems for Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 applications have been tested and comply with Internet Protocol Suite and ISA-95 International Standards required by manufacturers in many process automation industries. The open architecture design of their intelligent HMI series, Premium and Standard PC-based HMIs, make them ideally suited for MES, EMI Software and Service Applications. The Smart series of HMIs from AIS tout a combination of features for the new era of the Industrial Internet of things (IIoT) including, open platform design, modularity, high processing power, future expandability, removable storage and connectivity options.

Providing Improved Operations Visibility and Facilitating Real-Time Decision Making for MES and EMI Systems with AIS’s Smart Premium & Standard Series HMIs

Global Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and Enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) are rapidly growing manufacturing software and service market. Manufacturing enterprises embrace AIS’s Smart HMIs for these applications because it gives them the ability to respond to the dynamic environment of their organizations by analyzing historic data and real time information on the shop floor, which increases the overall flexibility and improves efficiency of the enterprises.

In response to this trend in manufacturing, AIS has engineered their Premium and Standard Series intelligent, Industrial PCs and HMI Panels. Engineered to support MES and EMI software requirements, their multi-touch screen monitors and touch panels are available in a full range of sizes that can display real-time plant status visibility, dashboards, trending and data analysis, downtime and efficiency management, statistical process analysis and control. This mission critical data and information is important for manufacturing companies to improve visibility in their operations and help real-time decision-making from the plant floor to the office.

Design Compliance Makes AIS’s Open Platform Industrial PCs the Easy Choice for Integration into SCADA, DCS and Batch Automation Systems & Operations

The ANSI/ISA-95, or ISA-95 specification is an international standard, established by the International Society of Automation for developing an automated interface between enterprise and control systems for global manufacturers in process industries involved with batch processes, continuous and repetitive processes. Complying to these international standards, including Internet Protocol Suite which provides end-to-end connectivity specifying how data should be packetized, addressed, transmitted and received at the destination, makes AIS Industrial Smart Panels and PCs an easy choice for manufacturing companies in process industries and markets.

AIS’s Industrial IoT HMIs Help Companies Connect, Share and Transport Data Faster and More Efficiently Throughout Networks with Processing Power, Memory and Advanced Features

AIS’s Premium and Standard Series HMI Touch Panel PCs meet the ever growing demand for system interoperability, improved security, and manageability by supplying advanced HMI gateway capabilities and performance. Intelligent, IoT systems storage and memory requirements are increasing greatly to accommodate the massive amounts of data sets generated by I/O sensors for smart city and industrial applications. IoT applications are getting more and more complicated due to the need for smarter, faster and more accurate intelligent systems. Powered by Intel® Core™ i7-4650U processors (4m Cache, up to 3.30 GHz) along with removable and expandable storage and a host of connectivity features, AIS’s Premium Series Industrial PCs are up to the tasks of complex processing challenges in Level 2 Enterprise Control, SCADA, DCS and Batch Automation Systems. The Standard Series of AIS HMI is equipped with an Intel® Atom™ Processor E3845 (4 Cores, 2M Cache, 1.91 GHz) and is an energy efficient, cost alternative for MES, EMI, SCADA and DCS applications.

The next generation of Smart HMIs including the Premium and Standard Line, are available in displays with both analog resistive single-touch and (PCT/PCAP) projected capacitive multi-touch, ranging from 12” to 24” screen sizes. AIS Modular HMI Panels are rugged and certified (UL/cUL/CB 61010 and 62368) for automation, information and communication applications while providing maintenance-free service for harsh and/or standard industrial environments.
