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.
