AIS rugged computers and displays with MIL-STD-810 environment and MIL-STD-461 EMI compliance for industrial use.American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS), is an International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) accredited supplier and manufacturer of cost-effective commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) military-grade rugged touch computers and displays for government, aerospace, and defense entities. These compact ruggedized touch computers and displays are designed manufactured and qualified to pass MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461. All units are tested for drop-shock, moisture, dust and vibration resistance, and temperature extremes for military, aerospace, government, and the toughest industrial applications.

AIS Military Vehicle Panel PC’s are rugged COTS displays integrated with an embedded Intel Atom processor for high reliability applications requiring MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461 environmental engineering compliance for extreme temperatures, shock/vibration, and ingress protection for military vehicle applications.

The AIS rugged embedded touch panel PC’s and monitors provide an easy-to-use interface and advanced functionalities that improve operator productivity by enabling effective visualization of in-vehicle operations and efficient controls. Additional options such as sunlight readable Transflective films touch screens, wide voltage range boards, wide temperature range modules, and shock/vibration enhancements are among the enhancement technologies available for systems to meet your exact application requirements.

Military standard testing involves many areas that are of equal concern in tough industrial environments:

• MIL-STD-810 provides standard methodology for a range of extreme conditions including drops, shocks, vibration, humidity, altitude, rain, dust and sand-resistance, temperature extremes, and thermal shock.
• MIL-STD-461 includes standard methodology for EMI and EMC.
• Maritime Environment Standard covers a range of extreme conditions including temperature, humidity, vibration, EMC compatibility, and enclosures.
• Environmental ratings for enclosures include NEMA 4, 4X, IP65, IP67 Type designations for protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, hose-directed water, and corrosion.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
