American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of a low cost 10.1 Web-based Operator Panel. This web-based operator panel pc is equipped with energy-efficient technologies including Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capability, LED backlights, lower power consumption processors, and fanless cooling systems, making the unit ideal for easy installation and cost-efficient performance.
The 10.1 HMI touch panel features high performance, energy efficient Intel® Atom Processors and high durability touch screens for use in HVAC, lighting, access control and conference room point of information 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. It does not require modification of existing Ethernet cabling infrastructure. The units support the latest POE standard IEEE 802.3at for up to 25.5 Watt power transmission capability over a standard cat 5 cable. The AIS 10.1 PoE wall mount touch screen operator panel offer a cost effective solution by bringing power and data transfer via a standard twisted-pair Ethernet cabling in a network for building automation, remote maintenance, remote diagnostics and testing equipment.
AIS 10.1 web-based HMI touch panel feature Touch screen technology, LED backlit LCD Panels, and ultra-low power consumption x86 based processors like the Intel® Atom series. Everything is packaged within a rugged industrial steel chassis, protecting the components from harsh industrial environments and durability. Long life cycle industrial grade components are utilized for high reliability and long product availability. Standard VESA 75mm spaced mounting holes are available on the rear and additional mounting clips are included for easy mounting to any fixture or wall. AIS´ new line of PoE Operator Interface Terminals provide a solution for companies looking to go green, increase their operating efficiency, reduce expensive cabling costs, and reduce their power consumption footprint.
System Integrators/VARs pricing starting at $799
