The Zypad® WR1100 rugged wrist-worn personal computer (PC) is a powerful wearable computing device designed for harsh environmental conditions that can be worn comfortably on the user’s wrist for hands-free operation. The WR1100 is designed to meet MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E requirements, making it an ideal solution for military, homeland defense, first responder, security, and emergency service field and in-vehicle applications.
The WR1100 can be quickly configured to access any remote host system through its integrated wired and/or wireless interfaces using its Linux operating system. The unit integrates a number of innovative features, including 802.11 and Bluetooth/Zigbee interfaces, a GPS receiver, electronic compass, biometric fingerprint sensor, and 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.
Another major benefit of the WR1100 is its 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. The battery module can also be easily removed and replaced in the field with hot swapping functionality.
The system has a special fiberglass-reinforced nylon/magnesium alloy case to maximize its durability and minimize weight, along with a large high-resolution touch screen display protected it against water and dust ingress. The Zypad’s rigid wrist support system 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 computing core allows users to easily insert/remove it from main wrist support at any time.
