RealWear First to get ATEX Zone 1 Certification for Oil and Gas Industry and other Hazardous Locations
Sensors Online reported that RealWear unveiled the world’s first commercially available intrinsically safe wearable computer (ATEX Zone 1 and Class 1 Division 1). HMT-1Z1 ruggedized wearable computer is the only head-worn computer that presents no ignition risk where potentially explosive atmospheres exist during routine operation.
Andy Lowery, Co-founder and CEO of RealWear says, “With the launch of the HMT-1Z1, now all workers, even those in potentially explosive areas requiring intrinsically safe equipment, can take full advantage of the freedom and efficiencies available through purpose-built wearable computing.”
