IRVINE, Calif. -- American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS) has introduced another line of Power over Ethernet (PoE) touchscreen panel PCs, available in 5.7”, 7”, and 10.1” compact form factor sizes.

The units support the latest PoE standard IEEE 802.3at for up to 25.5 Watt power transmission capability over a standard Cat 5 cable. AIS says the new line of PoE wall mount touchscreen terminals are especially geared for industrial automation, transportation, appliance and digital signage applications.

The company notes that Power over Ethernet or PoE technology describes a system to safely transfer 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. By automating more and more of building, transportation, and communication systems including heating, cooling, water, and power, users can save 15% or more on heating and electric bills. Additionally, PoE significantly reduces the need for electricians to install conduit, electrical wiring, and outlets throughout the enterprise. AIS says its Power over Ethernet (POE) enabled HMI PCs follow the IEEE 802.3af, IEEE 802.3at integrated data and power industry standards for direct drop in deployment for new and existing PoE systems.
