By Chemical Engineering |

The new Smart-Ex Watch 01 (photo, p. 31) is said to be the first smartwatch for use in Ex Zones 2/22 and Div. 2. Based on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, it offers a new way of hands-free communication and enables higher employee protection. The Smart-Ex Watch 01 can be combined with this company’s Smart-Ex 02 and Ex-Handy 10 smart handheld devices to support the mobile worker with a wide range of tasks in hazardous areas. The Smart-Ex Watch 01 offers the mobile worker full freedom of movement and communication. Hands-free navigation via advanced voice control or wrist gestures simplifies operation. A rotating bezel allows for intuitive scrolling through apps and instructions, even when wearing gloves. Thanks to integrated GPS and motion sensors, the Smart-Ex Watch 01 protects its wearer from the ubiquitous dangers of an industrial environment. Additionally, the sensors can be used to monitor vital signs for critical conditions. — ecom instruments GmbH, a Pepperl+Fuchs brand, Assamstadt, Germany
