AIS Value Line touchscreen HMIs for machine control, monitoring
By Alyssa Dalton
Feb. 2, 2015 – American Industrial Systems (AIS) says its new Value Line series of smart touchscreen HMIs is suited for IT-OT convergence, M2M communications, Industry 4.0 and is IoT ready for future requirements.
Designed for OEMs that need machine control and monitoring functionality, the HMI is equipped with a NEMA 4/IP65-compliant aluminum front bezel, and corrosion resistant surface ideal for tough and abusive environments. Powered with Intel’s Celeron N2930 processor, the series comes with on-board non-volatile DDR3L-1333 memory and a standard SD card slot. The company says it has lowered overall HMI system costs by using an aluminum die-cast housing which resulted in a lightweight frame, high dimensional stability, superior corrosion resistance, improved mechanical properties, high thermal and electrical conductivity and the ability to retain strength at high temperatures. Available in screen sizes ranging from 7 in. to 21.5 in. and in single resistive and multi-touch screen versions, the Value Line comes standard with Windows Embedded Compact 7, Embedded 7 or 8 (32/64 bit) operating systems. It is UL/cUL/CB 61010 and UL/cUL/CB 62368 certified.
