Smart glasses for industrial use in hazardous areas

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

Together with its cooperation partner Iristick, this company is introducing Visor-Ex 01 smart glasses (photo) — the intelligent wearable that combines high camera quality and reliable communication features in an ergonomic design. The device enables workers to perform all tasks that require hands-free use, as well as communication, in hazardous areas. This can include many digital workflows, such as maintenance procedures under the guidance of a remote support expert, who can give instructions and guidance with precision seeing what is happening through the eyes of the technician. The intrinsically safe smartphone Smart-Ex 02 as a computing unit, combined with a pocket unit with replaceable battery for power supply, creates an intelligent ecosystem for a wide range of applications. Visor-Ex 01 will be certified according to ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/21 and 2/22, as well as EC/CEC Division 1 and 2 and will have protection class IP68. It can be used in a temperature range from –20 to 60°C. — ECOM Instruments GmbH, Assamstadt, Germany
