The ZYPAD RUGGED WR11XX Wrist Worn Personal Rugged Computer is a powerful computing device designed to withstand the most severe environmental conditions and to be worn comfortably on the user’s wrist for hands-free operation.
The WR11XX has a special case made of fiberglass reinforced nylon and magnesium alloy, which maximizes the strength and minimizes weight. Also the large high-resolution touch screen display is protected by a special film; this is to avoid damage and is made to withstand water, dust, etc.
The WR11XX is compliant with MIL standard regulations.
Another big advantage of the WR11XX is the modularity-the ability to change the functions for the device by merely replacing a module. If the user wishes to switch from a GPS receiver to a GPRS module, for example, this can be done through a simple, plug-and-play, hot swap operation. Being modular, also the battery module is easy to remove and insert allowing a fast replacing on the field that combined with the hot swapping functionality gives a further benefit for the users.
Hands-free Operation
The hands-free operation of the WR11XX overcomes the physical limitations associated with normal hand-held computers, this allowing users complete freedom to continue everyday activities using both hands while continuing to have full computer access at all times.
The hands-free versatility of the WR11XX makes it of special interest to First Responders, Emergency Services, Security, Defense, Forest Services and any area where hands-free access to large amounts of information is necessary.
The Rigid Wrist Support allows ergonomic positioning and easy fastening to the arm, even over the users work clothes, thus ensuring ideal weight distribution and maximum comfort, while the removable core system allows users to easily insert/remove it from main Rigid Wrist support at any time.
Remote Computing Services
The ZYPAD WR11XX solidifies the concept of ubiquitous computing by integrating all the power and capabilities expected from a laptop PC within an extremely versatile device.
The ZYPAD WR11XX can be quickly configured to access any remote host system through its integrated wired or wireless interfaces using the Linux operating system.
Information can be shared and services accessed regardless of location.
The system integrates the latest and most innovative features, such as a tilt and dead reckoning system that detects the position of the user’s arm and sets the system to standby mode when the arm is hanging down beside the body and an electronic compass.
