Product values such as durability, durability and precision in the imt.x55 device with design details. The insulation material, which meets the waterproofing criteria, has also taken on the function and in a way to provide shock absorbing feature against impacts around the product. Produced from colored (yellow) material, this component was shaped to emphasize the contours of the product. The bright facade of the product, which reflects the corporate identity and product identity, is retracted in a way that is environmentally protected and the screen is programmed away from impacts. The glossy front surface brings the attributes of the two materials side by side, separating the user interface and brand space from the matte body. Symmetrical cuts on the sides provide recesses for easy grip, while ridges protect the user’s fingers from the magnetic base.
The imt.x55, unlike the previous generation product, has improved its technology and usage features and become programmable with a single button. The user can easily activate the product by following the parameters in the plain screen search. Unlike products in the similar category, the user interface aims to communicate with the user and to easily customize the monitoring parameters. It eases the workload of employees by providing easy understanding and programming of the product status in field conditions and open areas.
