Working remotely has become a necessity due to the current global pandemic and this presents a wide range of challenges for manufacturing businesses and other types of activity which requires a person to be physically present.

One of the most successful solutions to the challenge of working remotely has been Microsoft Teams. This has enabled businesses to keep in contact with each other at a time where being socially distant is a necessity. The next challenge here is the obstacle of carrying out specialist work in the manufacturing industry where the norm would be to bring in a consultant or technician – who is experienced with the job at hand. Due to travel restrictions and social distancing, this has become impossible so the solution to this is to video-call an expert and have them guide the person who is physically on-site through the process. Many workers are using a tablet or smartphone camera to communicate with the specialist but this can be over encumbering and difficult to carry out work while holding the device.

The HMT-1Z1 is the ideal solution for this problem as it frees both hands and enables the expert on the call to have the exact view the person in the field does. This ATEX Zone 1 certified wearable tablet uses a purpose built voice based operating system through its integrated speaker. The device also has a 3.5mm audio jack which allows you to plug the device into any hearing protection you may be using. The HMT also features unrivalled noise cancellation to ensure that the voice commands are crystal-clear and reliable. As well as being technologically advanced, the HMT is also designed to be rugged and able to stand up to the wear and tear of hazardous areas. As well as being IP66 to protect against both dust and water, the device is also tested to be drop-proof at up to 2 meters.

This device enables completely hands-free working in hazardous areas by using voice commands while walking or climbing in a range of potentially explosive environments. No only does the HMT-1Z1 allow you to continue working without the need to hold a device, it also improves your level of safety as you can remain aware of your surroundings without looking down at a screen.
