Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS), an Open HMI Panel PC & Industrial PC
(IPC) manufacturer, announces their “Design for Smart Touch Panel PCs
Manufacturability Services” (DMS) supporting Industrial Ethernet (IE)
and Fieldbus communications technologies. AIS’s Open HMI and Industrial
displays new product development and engineering service features open
platform, PC-based HMIs with industrial communication interface options
for real-time, greater bandwidth and larger data packages that provide
communications with more intelligent industrial devices. AIS also offers
a cadre of new product development, engineering, quality, certifications
and standards testing services for OEMs and end-user customers in
factory, industrial, commercial and process automation industries.

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:

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.
This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices.
While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
