Do you happen to work in a really, really tough environment, where it is hot as hell and your boss is the devil? Poor you, as your resume doesn’t seem to register interest in the upper tiers of management elsewhere, so you might as well make the best of the situation. We’re talking about the AIS 15” IP67 NEMA 6 Rugged Panel Computer that comes integrated with Optical Bonding Enhancements for military & aerospace applications, now how about that? I know that it can be quite heavy to digest at the moment, but hear me out in the extended post and see whether this AIS offering is worth your company’s dollars (and your time, of course) or not.
AIS is also known as American Industrial Systems Inc., where their latest 15” IP67 NEMA 4 Panel PC was specially designed for military, transportation, and aerospace applications. This AIS Military Panel PC has been completely sealed from the factory to IP67/NEMA 6 rated standards when it comes to water and dust protection, and is full well capable of operating in the harshest of environments – even if you’re submersed in water. Apart from sealing the display to make it compliant with MIL-STD-810F rating for vibration, shock, and drop for in vehicle applications, it will come equipped with a touchscreen HMI interface that was specially built-in for easy user control and monitoring. This military embedded computer system display will be optically bonded with surface treatments in order to improve contrast by eliminating mismatched reflective layers and to improve readability in direct sunlight.
Underneath the hood, things aren’t too hot though. I would have thought that the military would want more processing muscle than an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, but there it is, albeit running in a high performance fanless environment. You also get a high brightness 800 nit sunlight readable LCD panel that is touchscreen friendly, and you won’t need to worry about condensation issues even in wet and humid environments. The housing itself is made out of a rugged corrosion resistant aluminum alloy to protect its innards. No idea on pricing, but it shouldn’t be cheap.
