Amaro (Italy), May 3, 2011 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, announces the launch of the Zypad BR2000 series of vehicle-mounted and man-worn computers ideal for rugged environments such as those often seen in the oil and pipe, industrial, and transportation markets. Compact, light-weight, and power-stingy, the Zypad BR2000 also brings out an impressive list of high-speed I/O, multimedia, and communications capabilities making it a fully functional wearable or vehicle mounted computer. Being low power, battery based and compact, the unit can be used as a man-wearable computer that’s worn on utility belts, in a pocket or backpack or on a vest. The Zypad BR2000 can also be mounted onto a vehicle such as a truck or service car.
Physically robust to endure even the most extreme conditions, the Zypad BR2000 is compliant with IP67 environmental standards, which means the submersible metal enclosure ensures protection against damages due to water or dust. The unit, which weights under 2 lbs (800 g) including the battery, has a wide operating temperature between -40°C to +71°C and supports even military-grade standards so that users can be ensured of a reliable and durable product regardless of the situation.
The powerful Intel® Atom™ E6xx processor on the inside allows Eurotech to bring two Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, three RS-232/422 ports, VGA video and audio interfaces. Wireless communications capabilities and necessary antennas are fully integrated including 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth Class 1 and a high sensitivity GPS receiver. Data storage options ensure that large volumes of information can be retained and shared. All of this functionality can be run on Linux, Windows Embedded, or Windows 7 operating environments.
