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
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.
