Glacier Computer Releases Rugged Wearable Computer
New Wearable W200 Windows CE Computer Allows For Maximum Workplace Flexibility
New Milford, CT– Glacier Computer, a leading designer, developer and supplier of rugged industrial computers announces shipment of the Ridgeline W200 wearable computer.
The W200 is made of a reinforced magnesium alloy which maximizes strength and minimizes overall weight. At only 10.2 ounces and shaped to the contours of the arm, the W200 combines the same features of a standard computer with a device that provides the convenience and ergonomics of a wrist worn instrument. The W200 boasts a 3.5” color display with touch screen, backlit keyboard and a hot swappable battery pack. The wireless functions of the W200 ensure continuous connectivity regardless of the user’s location with plug and play Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS modules. Using the Windows CE or Linux operating systems, the unit can be quickly configured to access any remote host system through integrated wired or wireless interfaces.
“The W200 is a great compliment to our Ridgeline Series of portable computers’” states John Geary, Vice President of Sales for Glacier. “The W200 crosses multiple verticals and is a powerful differentiator in today’s competitive landscape” says Geary.
The hands-free operation of the W200 overcomes the physical limitations associated with normal hand-held computers. This allows users complete freedom to continue everyday activities using both hands while having full computer access at all times. In addition to an electronic compass, the system also integrates the latest and most innovative features, such as a tilt and silent reckoning, which allows critical battery savings when the unit is not in use.
The hands-free versatility of the W200 makes it of special interest to Emergency Services, Security, Defense, Warehouse, Field Logistics and any area where access to large amounts of information is necessary. The Ridgeline W200 joins the current Glacier line of rugged computers developed for data collection.
