Multi-touch panel series, 7 inch HMI panel PC
American Industrial Systems' (AIS) 7-in. HMI Panel PC is a fully-integrated commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) unit that features a robust and lower-power TI ARM Cortex-A8 AM3354 Processor 720 MHz and comes with pre-installed Linux, Android, or Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating systems.
American Industrial Systems' (AIS) 7-in. HMI Panel PC is a fully-integrated' Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) unit that features a robust and lower-power TI ARM Cortex-A8 AM3354 Processor 720 MHz. The AM3354 ARM Cortex-A8 processor-based design from Texas Instruments provides high performance processor, graphics and connectivity. It comes with pre-installed Linux, Android, or Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating systems, and the added ability to customize a variety of third-party Real-time Operating System (RTOS) offerings to meet the demands of Human Machine Interface (HMI) solution requirements.
The multi-touch displays are industrial-grade LCD flat panel displays with a sleek industrial design, and feature Projective Capacitive Touch (PCT or PCAP). Multi-touch refers to the ability of a surface (touchscreen) to recognize the presence of more than one or more than two points of contact with the surface. The sensor in projected capacitive touch allows tracking of two simultaneous touches quickly and accurately across the entire screen. The AIS 7-in. flat panel mount multi touch PC is accurate, responsive and easy-to-use, enabling migration of existing single touch applications to a gesture-based interface that creates and delivers popular user interactions such as pan, zoom and rotate.
In addition to incorporating multi-touch technology, the AIS 7-in. comfort control panel PC features Power over Ethernet (PoE) Technology. This technology features a system that safely transfers electrical power, along with data, to remote devices over standard category 5 cable in an Ethernet network. It does not require modification of existing Ethernet cabling infrastructure, so deployment is simplified. The AIS 7" HMI panel offers a cost effective solution by bringing power and data transfer, via a standard twisted pair Ethernet cabling in a network for faster time to market.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
