Intrinsically Safe Mobile Device Ecosystem for Smart Factory

smart-factoryAt SPS – Smart Production Solutions from 8 to 10 November in Nuremberg, the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ECOM Instruments will be demonstrating a multi-faceted ecosystem as the link between mobile workers and the hazardous areas of a smart factory in hall 7A at booth 411.

Smartphones, tablets and smart glasses provide mobile workers with almost unlimited flexibility in every application scenario.

Whether documentation, digital work orders, viewing of construction drawings, smart operations or real-time “see what I see” communication with remote support: For these current and future application scenarios, ECOM Instruments already offers a comprehensive portfolio consisting of intrinsically safe smart devices, peripheral devices, consulting and support by its own application engineers as well as digital services. ECOM’s portfolio combines high performance, reliable communication and ease of use into a holistic concept. The intelligent solutions open up a new dimension of digital collaboration in hazardous areas – location-independent, fast and safe. Intelligent, intrinsically safe devices, state-of-the-art software and digital services enable mobile workers to share know-how digitally in real time or to bring an expert virtually live to the scene of the action. The result are better predictable, controllable, lean processes, cost savings through fewer downtimes, as well as higher productivity and sustainable knowledge management. At SPS – Smart Production Solutions from 8 to 10 November 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany, fair visitors can find out more about ECOM Instruments’ comprehensive range of services for the hazardous area in hall 7A, booth 411.

Digital support also hands-free: Visor-Ex® 01

A highlight of the ECOM Instruments trade fair presentation is Visor-Ex® 01, at 180 grams currently the lightest intrinsically safe smart glasses on the market. Visor-Ex® 01 is the first device of its kind to be certified according to ATEX and IECEx.

A unique feature is the new concept of distributing various functions of the smart glasses to individual components to minimize weight. The modular system of smart glasses with integrated camera and microphone, the smartphone Smart-Ex® 02 and an external battery unit offers mobile workers the greatest possible flexibility as well as new remote ways of working on their assignments – e. g. by keeping their hands free for various tasks. The OLED display of the Visor-Ex® 01 displays the information needed for the job. The mobile worker’s undivided attention on the current task reduces the risk of errors or interruptions in the workflow.
