No Compromises

Ruggedized and Ex certified products have been synonymous with low performance, outdated technology and bulky form factors. We wanted to change that! Our customers came to us and said they wanted the same performance and form factor in their Ex certified devices as consumer devices. We also added some features that no other smartphone has.

Video and Imaging centric

We designed the Impact X smartphone with hazardous industrial environments in mind, where battery lifetime, ruggedness, usability, sunlight readability, glove compatibility and camera performance is essential. The high end optics, custom buttons, high end imaging sensors and Android operating system ensures that the device can be used for imaging, documentation, inspection and many other tasks.

Ergonomic features

Flipscape™: One-hand videography, anti smuge recess for camera glass, anti smuge coating on glass, dedicated camera button, glove compatible touch screen, moisture immune touch screen, ergonomic grip and hand strap makes it useable and ergonomic.

FlipScape explained

Did you ever wonder why many mobile videos are shown in a narrow strip in the middle of the video window on YouTube? The reason is that people want to hold their phone with one hand when recording videos.The orientation of the camera on a standard phone follows the screen ratio and you will therefore not get an optimal ergonomic experience. We have solved this problem by adding a second camera on the back of the device that is rotated 90 degrees compared to the standard camera.


Ships with telepresence app

The Impact X ships with the Sipido telepresence app that allows the user to stream live HD video to any location. This allows you to extend your video conferencing service to the field. Remote troubleshooting, inspection and surveillance has never been easier. This app is also available on other devices.

Double battery capacity

The Impact X is stuffed with advanced technology in order to offer the best possible performance. Modern mobile processors ensures the lowest possible power consumption. The device also has double the battery capacity (3000mAh) compared to other smartphones, to ensure a full workday with active use.

ImpactX back in hand

Immune to the elements

The Impact X is ruggedized to an extent that makes it able to take almost any challenge the environment might throw at it. It is impact, drop, dust, corrosion, water and explosion proof. It also has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. It has a special glass sealing method with IP68 Corning Gorilla glass (2mm thick) and a Sunlight readable IPS display.

Powered by Android

Android is the preferred operating system for mobile devices. The reason is simple, running Android, the Impact X is secure, stable, updated and you have access to a huge library of applications. Bring any app into hazardous areas, including a wide range of value adding applications and services, such as mobility and ERP solutions, device management, video conferencing applications and every other Android app.

Enterprise adapted Apps

Today’s workers expects the same snappy performance in their enterprise apps as they do at home when playing Angry Birds. The Impact X can help organizations realize their mobility strategies by offering the horsepower to run any App developed for Android. For example ERP, RFID and Barcode Reading, video conferencing and device management to mention a few. This means new usage scenarios and applications in many industries. The custom-built video conferencing application called “SIPIDO”, allows the user to conduct live video conferencing sessions and stream video from the field. Work smarter and solve problems remotely, without having to send experts and technicians to the site. This saves travel costs and time. This device as an enabler for many smart innovations within hazardous areas. It gives the user an unprecedented versatile and powerful platform.


The Impact X has received the Award
for Design Excellence


Machined from Aluminum

The Impact X chassis is machined from one piece of high quality Norwegian aluminum in order to provide the ruggedness, durability and high quality feel the product deserves. It is fitted with rubber details and raised buttons made out of a durable but yet comfortable material. This is arguably the toughest smartphone ever built!

Wearable kit

Hands-free operation is often required when working in the hazardous area. This is why we have developed a wearability kit that enables Impact X to be mounted on a wrist cradle and the Orbit X to be mounted on a helmet, headset, wall mount, or telescopic pole. The result is a completely wireless and hands free mobile worker kit.
