Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced that its M400 smart glasses has been tested for airborne particle purity and has received ISO class 2 certification. The assignment of ISO class 2, according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1, means that the M400 only emits a maximum of 8 particles of size 0.1 µm and 3 particles of size 0.2 µm in one minute per cubic foot of air. This certification will allow the M400 to be used within clean room environments that are typically employed by firms in industries that include electronics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, optics, solar and aerospace/defense.

“We are pleased to receive this level of certification for our M400, a strong result and one which represents a competitive advantage over other wearable devices that are not certified as highly,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. “Use of our M400 smart glasses within clean rooms will allow operators to send and receive critical process information and improve their workflows without the need for expert technicians to physically be in the clean room to support them, saving time and keeping the number of people in the clean room to a minimum.”
