Modular HMI panel PCs can be upgraded and replaced in the field
American Industrial Systems’ Modularized HMI Panel PC systems are designed for a "smart" manufacturing technology platform for harsh conditions. The that are easily serviced and replaced by customers in the field while maintaining high productivity with the least amount of downtime and disruptions to their operations. The PC-based HMIs from AIS are designed to be easily replaceable and upgradable. AIS HMI Display and IPC units are designated as either Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) or Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) that can be quickly and easily upgraded or repaired. This makes it useful for remote areas such as off shore production platforms and drilling rigs in the oil and gas industry.
The modularized HMI Touch panel PC increases sustainability in terms of resource product lifecycle management and supply chain performance. It allows flexible original equipment manufacturer/orginal design manufacturer (OEM/ODM) manufacturing, system integration, and better asset management for industrial control system (ICS). They’re also useful for distributed control system (DCS), programmable logic controller (PLC), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and manufacturing execution system (MES) solutions.
