American Industrial Systems develops new touch panel PCs

FBR Staff Writer Published 24 September 2013

American Industrial Systems (AIS) has developed a line of touch panel PCs designed for the volatile and harsh environments of food and beverage, healthcare, pharmaceutical and tobacco manufacturing industries.

Featuring a hygienic design with a stainless steel front bezel, the new touch panel PCs comply with strict hygiene regulations for the food, packaging and medical industries.

Based upon safety hygiene requirements, DIN EN1672-2 Food Processing Machinery, the AIS stainless steel HMIs with IP66 protection and NEMA 4/4X rating features a gapless housing design with flush-mounted touch screens.

To ensure maximum cleanliness and sterility, optimal corrosion protection and high resistance to contamination are required, especially with open processes where products come into direct contact with the manufacturing equipment.

Powered by high-performance Intel Atom processor N455 1.66 GHz in an industrial-grade LCD flat panel, AIS HMIs are offered in screen sizes of 10.4", 15" and 17" and additional features include compact flash card slot for facilitating data archiving and protection against viruses and externally accessible HDD for quick replacement.
