HoloLens 2 Industrial Edition, the augmented and mixed reality headset designed for use in regulated industrial environments, is now available to buy.

Microsoft has set the industrial edition’s price at $4,950, a hefty sum for any immersive technology. For comparison, the base model costs $3,500.

But this version was designed, built, and tested for both clean room compatibility (ISO 14644-1 Class 5-8) and intrinsic safety standards (UL Class I, Division 2).

HoloLens 2 Industrial Edition is aimed at Microsoft enterprise customers across the energy, healthcare and manufacturing sectors that wanted to use the headset in regulated industrial environments.

For example, Microsoft’s customers in the semiconductor and pharmaceutical industries require a headset that meets particle emissions standards to enter and operate in their highly controlled clean room environments.

Similarly in the energy sector, customers need a headset that can function safely in potentially hazardous environments.

HoloLens 2 Industrial Edition with Dynamics 365 Remote Assist is also in the works.

And don’t forget that Microsoft recently won a $21.9 billion contract to produce the custom augmented reality headsets under development for the US Army, which are based on HoloLens 2.
