AIS Releases Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Interactive Touch Displays for Visual Communication in School Digital Signage and Control System Applications

Power over Ethernet or PoE technology describes a system to safely transfer electrical power, along with data, to remote devices over standard category 5 cable in an Ethernet network.

IRVINE, Calif.--American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS), is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of 7" and 10.1" Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) interactive touch screen display for visual communication, meeting room signage, event scheduling, building directories, and emergency alerts in school digital signage & building control system applications. The compact PoE interactive touch screen terminals deployed in school systems are an effective tool to deliver dynamic and cost effective digital content to staff and students. The 7" and 10.1" PoE operator interface terminal keeps the education community connected, increasing awareness, and integrates with safety and security systems.


Power over Ethernet or PoE technology describes a system to safely transfer electrical power, along with data, to remote devices over standard category 5 cable in an Ethernet network. It does not require modification of existing Ethernet cabling infrastructure, so deployment is simplified. The wall mount touch screen terminals offer a cost effective solution by bringing power and data transfer via a standard twisted-pair Ethernet cabling in a network for faster time to market ideal for building automation, interactive scheduling systems in school.

Interactive scheduling systems have become one of the most effective and efficient tools for real life scheduling applications; with the emergence of Internet technology, cooperative scheduling systems can be distributed on Internet and the personalized scheduling systems can be designed and developed to be embedded in the existing network information systems. The AIS PoE Panel PC features the Intel® Atom Processor and Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology built-in, allowing for installation into remote locations without the need to run power cables.

With touch screen capability, ruggedized housing, and several I/O connections, the AIS HMI terminal is a powerful cost effective tool. AIS's commercial off the shelf (COTS) predesigned touch screen panel PC's provide a control interface which is easily integrated to new and existing installations reducing the time to market and competitiveness where service, availability, reliability, and technology are paramount.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
