AIS’s Open, PC-Based HMI Platforms Pave the Way for Improved
Network Communications Flexibility & Connectivity for Automation Users
AIS’s new open HMI Touch Panel PC offering has expanded its industrial
network capabilities and protocols delivering high performance real-time
Industrial Ethernet including: EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Modbus, and
PROFINET connectivity. For Fieldbus network communications AIS’s new
product designs also offer: CANopen, DeviceNet, and PROFIBUS, supporting
traditional Fieldbus as well as all established Real-Time-Ethernet
systems. Nelson Tsay, President of AIS adds, “By extending the range
of our available industrial communications interface options for greater
network integration and connectivity, our series of open platform,
PC-based HMIs provide our customers maximum flexibility for industrial
Ethernet communication, while offering innovative concepts for those
wanting a single platform and network for their entire plant or factory.”
AIS’s Open, Industrial Touch Panel Designs Are Equipped to Meet
the Insatiable Demand for Faster & More Robust Data Transfer,
Communication and Network Integration
While three quarters of all the connected nodes in the industrial world
are still traditional networks, utilizing protocols such as DeviceNet,
PROFIBUS, Modbus, and others, Industrial Ethernet is gaining ground
fast. According to industry research, Ethernet nodes in process
industries are set to almost double from 2011 to 2016. With this growth
forecast in mind, industrial Ethernet will account for almost half of
networked nodes connected in process industries in 2016. The study also
confirms that ProfiNet and Ethernet/IP have a leading position, both
having a market share of 30% of the globally established Industrial
The leading group includes ProfiNet, Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP.
Together, this group covers more than three-quarters of the market.
Regardless of which industrial communication network technologies
prevail or gain in popularity over the coming years, as an early pioneer
of open, PC-based control and monitoring solutions, AIS’s flexible,
PC-based HMI solutions are equipped and ready to help users select
integrated network solutions best suited for their specific automation
application. Furthermore, AIS is dedicated to developing visualization
and touch screen interfaces that will meet the fast paced and growing
demand for improved industrial network communications and their HMI
products support a wide variety of Fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet
industrial network technologies and applications.
AIS Incorporates Communications Interfaces Supporting All
Real-Time Ethernet and Fieldbus Systems for PC Based Automation
Ethernet in industrial automation offers high data transfers throughout
the communications pyramid from the factory floor to the enterprise.
However, the need for determinism and minimal jitter requires additional
components which may dictate specific PC components are selected with
long availability. Fieldbus is an established technology that will
coexist along with Real-Time Systems. AIS’s new open HMI technologies
will incorporate communications network protocols and interfaces that
will provide users a unified standard for all Real-Time Ethernet and
Fieldbus systems. In addition, this commitment to offering a wide
variety of communications protocols safeguards customers’ investment in
AIS’s open platform touch panels and Industrial PCs, as they can be
assured their solutions are flexible enough to meet their current needs,
revisions or changes in the future.
Seamless Integration of Industrial Networks with a Choice of
Network I/O Options
Real time distributed control via industrial networking interfaces and
communications are a critical piece to efficiently connecting automation
systems and components on the factory floor. As a provider of open
platform solutions, AIS delivers an extensive range of industrial,
wireless, Ethernet and fieldbus devices for all common I/O and fieldbus
systems which facilitates integrated networked automation systems. A
wide selection of I/O options means that you can choose the bus system
best suited to your application. AIS is dedicated to support the
following Fieldbus and Real Time Ethernet industrial networks:

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
