AIS Next Generation Low Cost ARM-Based HMI Thin Client for Industrial Automation and Process Control Applications

American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS), is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of low cost open-based thin client touchscreen terminals that support real time data visualization using a web browser for real time data monitoring, running on Windows Embedded CE 6.0 professional operating system. These open thin client touchscreen terminals are client based visualization and control systems that enable visualizing operations, and deliver reliable information to higher-level analytic applications. The thin client HMI system conforms to UL508, CSA, and CE, for use in industrial environments. The AIS industrial thin client HMI terminals are designed with low power consumption, rich I/O portfolio, ruggedized front bezel, IP65 protection class rating and high shock and vibration resistance components engineered to withstand harsh factory and environmental conditions. The 4.3, 7, 10 and 15-inch HMI thin clients are value products and cost effective choices especially for limited budget situations.

Network Efficiency and Web Browser

AIS’ Industrial HMI thin clients easily integrate into existing Ethernet and TCP/ IP installations which engineers use in monitoring and controlling mission critical processes, thereby allowing operators to see desktop quality graphics and real time updates of processes in a web browser from anywhere in the world. By gaining timely access to key performance indicators (KPIs), decision makers are able to make business decisions from real time information. Information convergence between manufacturing and business systems within an enterprise allows greater business agility and opportunities for innovation.

Enterprise Connectivity, SWaP and C4I

AIS industrial HMI thin clients powered by Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Professional operating system promote economic deployment of HMI solutions in manufacturing environments. Industrial HMI thin clients feature visual computing interfaces with the performance and reliability for industrial automation and control systems.
