AIS Offers New Open Platform Panel

 
June 20, 2014



Wireless technology has boomed in the IT sector over the past years. To improve the interaction between systems and operators, eliminate unscheduled downtime, and maximize production quality, American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS), announces its "High Available (HA) HMI Systems" design for manufacturability services for continuous operator control and data integrity.


AIS is a designer and manufacturer of flexible, scalable and open platform Operator Interfaces and Panel PCs.

Planned or unscheduled downtime of a HMI control and monitoring system can put pressure on a company's operational performance and efficiency. So the company needed HMI control and monitoring solutions that provide high availability and maximum uptime. Most HMI solutions only provide the operator with a partial view of what’s happening across the process.

AIS's new industrial panel designs includes built-in redundant storage and network devices, standard Ethernet and TCP/IP network connections, a PCI (News - Alert) expansion slot and multiple inputs and outputs as standard features on their HMI systems.

AIS's RAID Protection HMI allows users to protect real-time data performance and reliability. AIS’s HMI solutions ensure continuous control and monitoring of HMI applications. It uses 4th Generation Intel (News - Alert) Core i7 Processors, with increased memory up to 16 GB and built-in hardware redundancy to meet the demand for enhanced speed and performance.

AIS's Robust HMIs features dual redundancy capabilities and open network platforms deliver real time data processing & transparency.

AIS's Smart panel PCs increase network uptime and ensure device connectivity.

By moving to AIS and standard technologies, manufacturers can achieve higher cost living, improved maintenance; enhance application flexibility, increased efficiency with lower capital investments. AIS's high available HMI system also offers operators and engineers the power to precisely monitor and control every aspect of their manufacturing environment, equipment and resources.

AIS Operator Interface Panels also provide an open-architecture that communicates directly with PLCs, SCADA, MES, DCS, or ICS to facilitate industrial process automation control and monitoring.
