Plantronics (News - Alert) has announced that the company has partnered with P2i to offer military grade moisture protection to some of its products. The headsets from Plantronics, that are armed with this technology, will simply make the water or any other liquid bead up and run off the headset, protecting them from moisture.
And moisture is one of the major causes of electronic equipments giving problems. The invisible P2i coating was originally designed to protect the uniforms of the soldiers from liquid and potential chemical dangers. The coating is unbelievably small, as it has a thickness equivalent to one thousandth of a human hair. For those who loved the look and feel of the Plantronics headset, this product does not change them in way.
This coating will be applied to the Voyager Legend and BackBeat GO headsets along with the soon to be released white BackBeat GO. The ultra-thin size of the coating has many other advantages. With such a thin coating, Plantronics products need not give up on the electrical conductivity, the company has stated.
“For an active person always on the go, moisture shouldn’t alter the performance of their headset. As experts in wearable technology, Plantronics recognizes that whatever the environment, our customers expect their headsets to operate round the clock. P2i’s nano-coating allows us to take our products one step further, providing industry leading moisture protection,” said Tanguy Leborgne, vice president of consumer solutions at Plantronics.
In 2009, the company expanded its growing portfolio of UC products Optimized for Microsoft (News - Alert) Office Communicator with the new wideband.
