Ruggedly Designed AIS Vehicle Mounted Touch-Screen HMIs with MIL Spec Ratings

The user-friendly, touch-screen interface also offers a sunlight-readable display for outdoor applications. With an IP65-sealed aluminum housing and MIL-STD-810F military rating, the in-vehicle and fixed-mount touch-screen computer allows it to withstand extreme environments, vibration, and shock. A wide operating temperature range of -25 to 55° C (-13 to 131° F), allows the touch-screen computer to be installed and used in extreme cold or hot temperatures. Suitable for aerospace, maritime, industrial automation and medical equipment, its robust design and dustproof, rugged housing makes it suitable for almost any harsh or challenging environment.

The in-vehicle and fixed-mount touch-screen computer features an Intel® Atom™ Dual Core D2550 processor, 802.11a/b/g Wireless WLAN, and Windows Embedded Standard 7, providing support for a wide range of applications and allowing real-time processing. AIS in-vehicle touch screen panel PC combines rugged construction with high performance, availability and reliable wireless networking, enabling real-time data access and collection in harsh environments. The rugged constructions of the AIS vehicle mounted touch screen computers are available in 8.4” and 10.4” high-resolution touch-screen displays. They enable easy data input and readability, even for applications requiring gloved and protected hands.

AIS Smart M2M HMIs for Raw Materials, Tracking & Finished Goods Warehouse Management

Production and warehouse operations look for ways to continually improve inventory positions, lower operating costs and enhance customer satisfaction. Being able to respond quickly to customer demands, increase inventory turns, improve line-level accuracy and simplify compliance requirements is critical for maximizing operations. With wireless connectivity and warehouse management application, AIS smart M2M touch-screen computers and HMIs will help warehouse, production and logistics managers to achieve total visibility and keep their production line moving –from raw materials, to material tracking, to finished goods.

Streamline Fleet Management with Real-Time Data Communication Capabilities

With rising fuel costs, compliance mandates and increased customer service expectations, transportation and logistics companies need in-vehicle computers and HMIs that will allow their drivers to operate equipment anytime and anywhere with minimal disruptions. AIS vehicle mounted operator interfaces will deliver the most efficient fleet management visualization solutions. In addition, AIS in-vehicle mounted computers will give transportation and logistics companies the ability to increase safety and gain better visibility by tracking vehicle location, monitor driving speeds and patterns. By obtaining greater control, monitoring and communications capabilities, they will increase the safety of their drivers and cargo thereby decreasing insurance costs.
