American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of a rugged 15", 17" and 19" fanless industrial panel PCs that offer the high performance Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor in a highly integrated fanless and rugged compact design for industrial control and automation applications.
AIS´ fanless stainless steel panel computers provide optimum performance per watt operation, scalability and low power consumption. A stainless steel front bezel provides offering ingress protection from water, dust, and resistance to chemicals for deployment and operation in harsh industrial conditions.
The Intel Core 2 Duo processors for embedded computing are Intel’s growing product line of multi-core processors. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor allows AIS to integrate two complete execution cores in one physical package, providing advancements in simultaneous computing for multi-threaded applications and multitasking environments. The system offers a wide range of high performance processing combined with fanless operation in a small form factor, ideal for embedded industrial control and automation environments.
A polished stainless steel front bezel allows for easy cleaning, meeting DIN EN 1672-2 standards for food processing machinery – safety and hygiene requirements. The AIS rugged touch panel PC´s are designed with EN 1.4301, DIN X5CrNi, SAE 304, and UNS S30400 grade stainless steel with anti-corrosive and chemical resistant touch screen for operator control and monitoring of food processing machines. The stainless steel chassis can be cleaned with chemicals and is designed for situations where sanitation is of highest priority. Currently the Rugged Touch screen Panel PCs are available in 15, 17, and 19. VESA standard mounting holes are available on every unit for easy deployment into any installation. Whether your application requires a commercial off the shelf (COTS) unit, or a fully customized Weatherproof Panel PC, AIS has the flexibility to meet your requirement.
