Operator Interface Computers for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

The food, beverage, and consumer packaged goods industries are constantly evolving, and industrial computing has become the backbone of everyday life in the workplace. Industrial touch panel PCs are required, whether the application is for a control room, machine automation, assembly line monitoring, user terminals, or inside heavy machinery. Increased demands in processing power, mechanical designs, environmental performance, ruggedness, and high reliability are the key concerns in these industries. AIS understands that identifying the industrial computer and the right operator interface is essential for solving these industrial computing challenges. AIS stainless steel touch screen panel PCs provide the best-fitting products for overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) solutions. AIS combined the best of embedded computing and controls knowledge available in delivering innovative CPUs linked to leading open industrial networks, and connected to a full lineup of I/O options, resulting in the delivery of best-in-class availability, performance and quality.

Touch Panel Computers for Industrial Process Control and Visualization

These operator touch panel computers can operate as stand-alone and/or network solutions for combined plant control and visualization through standard interface including Ethernet network, USB and serial connections. The pre-installed Windows operating system allows the user to install 3rd party software packages for plant control, visualization and production. The system operates independently without external processing power and can communicate via serial interface directly to PLC systems. These systems are pre-tested and qualified to run Wonderware ArchestrA System Platform, InduSoft EmbeddedView, or Progea Movicon™ 11: Movicon™ 11, providing a single, scalable software platform for integrating existing SCADA, Supervisory HMI, MES and EMI systems into a unified operations management solution. AIS visualization panel computers with IP65 stainless steel enclosures utilize Windows embedded operating systems for critical production, process information and enterprise data applications in the food, beverage, and consumer packaged goods industries, accelerating development and enhancing operations.

Rugged Stainless Steel Touch Panel PCs for Cleaning-In-Place (CIP)

AIS rugged stainless steel operator control panels are highly functional control and display units in 15", 17", 19", or 21.5" touch panels that are integrated with high-performance Intel® Atom™ Dual Core Processor D2550 1.86 GHz. These systems meet the strict hygiene regulations for the food, beverage, and consumer packaged goods industries, clean rooms, and feature stainless steel panels with IP65 protection, resistance of the stainless steel surfaces and touch screens to cleaning agents and disinfectants, and equipping the display with a splinter guard, which all cover the requirements for cleanroom applications.
