AIS unveils new 15-inch touch panel PCs for industry

AIS has pulled the wraps off a new series of touchscreen computers designed for industrial use as touch panel PC controllers for various needs. The machines all have Intel Atom processors inside running at 1.6GHz and they have a 2.5W TDP. The cool running nature of the machines means that they are all passively cooled and have no fans inside.

The touch panel screens are 15-inches and have 250-nit brightness rating and a 700:1 contrast ratio. The screens use 5-wire resistive touch technology and they are rugged enough to survive use in industrial settings. The machines also have connectivity with RS232, RS485, and Ethernet connectivity and more.

The machines are rugged to IP65 specs. The computers have 1GB of DDR2 RAM inside. Storage is to a 3.5-inch 80GB HDD and the OS is either Windows XP Pro or embedded. Pricing on the new computer is unknown.
