  • The WT6000, wearable computer and the RS6000, ring scanner set a new standard for enterprise-class wearable solutions. They are smaller and lighter than comparable solutions on the market. The new innovative adjustable arm mounting system ensures that the WT6000 will fit comfortably on every worker, regardless of arm size. A customizable five colour LED light pipe on the ring scanner provides contextual feedback. The rugged yet elegant industrial design of our wearable system ensures maximum uptime in the most demanding of environments resulting in a 15% boost in worker productivity and 39% fewer errors than typical voice-only solutions.
