Worn on his forearm, this device creates an energy barrier that protects Hardware from incoming fire. The field can withstand armor-piercing bullets, energy blasts, and even small explosions at close range.. Despite this, the field is not indestructible; sustained heavy weapons fire will cause the field to lose power and eventually collapse.
Hardware can adjust the shape of the energy field depending on the amount of protection he requires. The default setting for the field is a triangular shape ("delta configuration").
