One Trusted Platform
The AIS HMI Intelligent System provides one trusted platform for
factories, manufacturing, and processing your organization's data - from
devices on the edge of your network, to developer tools, back-end
systems and services.
The AIS HMI Intelligent System is an all-in-one hardware platform
compatible with Windows Embedded operating systems. The touch panel
computer is unique in that you only need this one platform for micro
applications in HMI terminals and/or medium to large applications for
The AIS HMI Panel PC is designed with 3rd generation Intel (News - Alert)® Core™ i5/i7
processors for high-performance, with ultra-low power computing in a
small, and fan-less form factor. This energy-efficient technology is
embedded into the hardware to ensure optimum power efficiency
independent of the operating system.
The AIS HMI Operator Panel is completely based on standard technologies,
making sure that your investments are well safeguarded. The XML, ODBC,
OPC, VBA, SOAP, Web services, TCP-IP, and SQL technologies have been
integrated into the platform to guarantee easy data access and
The AIS Panel Computer provides comunication among devices and back-end
systems, and optimizes the collection and transmission of information.
The panel computer with pre-installed Windows Embedded family of
operating systems supports faster-than-ever connectivity and SkyDrive,
for anywhere, anytime access to files, on your hard drive or in the
The AIS panel PC helps protect devices and information from unwanted
content and unauthorized access. The touch panel computer with
pre-installed Windows Embedded operating systems supports secure data
and device management; hardware and software lockdown; application
control and tamper resistance.
The AIS HMI Intelligent System helps businesses maintain and manage
hardware and software assets to achieve optimal use of resources at
minimal cost and effort, while maximizing performance. The Panel PC with
pre-installed Windows Embedded operating systems supports PowerShell
automation; new file-management tools and Branch Cache bandwidth
optimization technology; and new testing, deployment and migration tools.
Reliability Methods and Standards
AIS understands that high availability and reliability are required to
minimize costs of operation (e.g. minimizing scheduled and unplanned
maintenance). MTBF is integrated in AIS engineering design, and governs
frequency of required system maintenance and inspections.
AIS calculates reliability prediction of industrial displays and
embedded systems using the Bellcore standard.
Tests included: accelerated life test, voltage, current,
temperature and vibration tests, temperature and humidity variations
tests, and ongoing reliability test.
These standards use a series of models for various categories of
electronic, electrical and electro-mechanical components to predict
steady-state failure rates which environmental conditions, quality
levels, electrical stress conditions and various other parameters
The MTBF of AIS industrial embedded systems have been in the range
of 40,000 to 50,000 hours.
