AIS´ Express II line of HMI operator interface terminals feature a PCI slot for expansion capability, they are available in 10.4, 12.1, 15, and 17 sizes. The pc-based and windows-based touch terminals are suited for plant monitoring, industrial automation, process control and complete system data logging for mid-level and supervisory level HMI applications. The Express II line panel pc´s are powered by the Intel® Atom™ 1.6 GHz processor with 2.5W thermal design power (TDP) and 1.56 TDP to clock speed ratio (W/GHz) which enables a passive and fanless cooling system architecture, ideal for industrial environments.
AIS Express II touch HMI panels are designed to NEMA 1/12/4 sealing standards on the front side, meeting high levels of dust, dirt, grease, and moisture resistance. The systems accept a wide voltage range input of 9-36V, making integration and deployment simple. The HMI´s feature standard communication interfaces including Gigabit Ethernet, RS232, and RS422/485 serial ports, which can connect to industrial automation PLC, DCS, SCADA and PAC systems. AIS Operator Interface Panel is an ideal solution for OEMs and system integrators who require local computing capabilities on the manufacturing floor or on a machine.

All AIS Express II HMI Panel PC´s are InduSoft certified hardware solutions, approved to run the industry-standard standard InduSoft Web Studio HMI/ SCADA software. InduSoft Web Studio™ is a powerful collection of automation tools that provide all the automation building blocks to develop HMIs, SCADA systems and embedded instrumentation solutions. AIS´ partnership with InduSoft provides innovative tools and complete solutions to rapidly build operator interface, SCADA, HMI or embedded applications and deploy across a wide range of industries including building automation, detention systems, packaging, oil and gas, water treatment, solar, semiconductor and wind power.
