AIS intros QNX-powered touchscreen terminals for industrial control

This just in: American Industrial Systems, a manufacturer of operator terminals for industrial control environments, has introduced a series of touchscreen terminals equipped with the QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System (RTOS).

According to AIS, the 12.1" and 15" touchscreen terminals (aka touch panels) are designed for machine-level, site-level, or mid-level applications. The terminals feature a fanless Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, a dual Gigabit Ethernet interface, and dual USB 2.0 and serial interfaces. The terminal housings comply with NEMA 1/12/4 sealing standards, providing dust, dirt, grease, shock, vibration, and moisture resistance. To further simplify deployment, the terminals accept a voltage range input of 9-33V.

QNX OS technology has been used in a host of industrial control applications for more than 30 years. Notable customers include General Electric (turbine control, locomotive control), Kieback&Peter (building automation), and Fortna (warehouse control)
