Ruggedly Designed AIS Vehicle Mounted Touch-Screen HMIs with MIL
The user-friendly, touch-screen interface also offers a
sunlight-readable display for outdoor applications. With an IP65-sealed
aluminum housing and MIL-STD-810F military rating, the in-vehicle and
fixed-mount touch-screen computer allows it to withstand extreme
environments, vibration, and shock. A wide operating temperature range
of -25 to 55° C (-13 to 131° F), allows the touch-screen computer to be
installed and used in extreme cold or hot temperatures. Suitable for
aerospace, maritime, industrial automation and medical equipment, its
robust design and dustproof, rugged housing makes it suitable for almost
any harsh or challenging environment.
The in-vehicle and fixed-mount touch-screen computer features an Intel®
Atom™ Dual Core D2550 processor, 802.11a/b/g Wireless WLAN, and Windows
Embedded Standard 7, providing support for a wide range of applications
and allowing real-time processing. AIS in-vehicle touch screen panel PC
combines rugged construction with high performance, availability and
reliable wireless networking, enabling real-time data access and
collection in harsh environments. The rugged constructions of the AIS
vehicle mounted touch screen computers are available in 8.4” and 10.4”
high-resolution touch-screen displays. They enable easy data input and
readability, even for applications requiring gloved and protected hands.
AIS Smart M2M HMIs for Raw Materials, Tracking & Finished Goods
Production and warehouse operations look for ways to continually improve
inventory positions, lower operating costs and enhance customer
satisfaction. Being able to respond quickly to customer demands,
increase inventory turns, improve line-level accuracy and simplify
compliance requirements is critical for maximizing operations. With
wireless connectivity and warehouse management application, AIS smart
M2M touch-screen computers and HMIs will help warehouse, production and
logistics managers to achieve total visibility and keep their production
line moving –from raw materials, to material tracking, to finished goods.
Streamline Fleet Management with Real-Time Data Communication
With rising fuel costs, compliance mandates and increased customer
service expectations, transportation and logistics companies need
in-vehicle computers and HMIs that will allow their drivers to operate
equipment anytime and anywhere with minimal disruptions. AIS vehicle
mounted operator interfaces will deliver the most efficient fleet
management visualization solutions. In addition, AIS in-vehicle mounted
computers will give transportation and logistics companies the ability
to increase safety and gain better visibility by tracking vehicle
location, monitor driving speeds and patterns. By obtaining greater
control, monitoring and communications capabilities, they will increase
the safety of their drivers and cargo thereby decreasing insurance costs.
AIS Industrial Embedded Computing for Rugged Environments and Long
Available in 8.4” and 10.4” resistive touch-screen models, AIS vehicle
mounted touch-screen computers are powered by an embedded Intel® Atom™
Processor D2550; 1M Cache, 1.86 GHz, 10 W thermal design power (TDP),
