Riedel’s managed technology staff maintain safe social distancing with new DisTag distance monitors
Riedel Communications’ all-new DisTag distance monitoring device is playing an essential role in the company’s gradual resumption of on-site operations.
As employees of the managed technology division return to work at Riedel’s headquarters, each is equipped with a DisTag; a reliable and precise instrument worn around the neck or carried in a pocket. DisTag immediately alerts its wearer via haptic, visual, and acoustic signals whenever the mandatory minimum distance to other people is about to be breached.
Featuring a compact and minimalist design, DisTag is a possible ideal companion for media and event production, industrial operations and schools and universities. The proximity limits of the warning signals can be individually defined and adjusted in accordance with local regulations for social distance. In addition, individual tags can be divided into compatible groups using the friendly function. Within these special groups, no alarms are triggered even if users come into close contact with each other.
“As our projects begin to ramp up once more, we’ve reached a point at which the division gets more and more busy with staff on site. It’s an ideal opportunity for our own employees to prove the concept for DisTag,” said Lutz Rathmann, director at Riedel Communications managed technology division. “Tools like DisTag are making it possible for companies around the world to start getting their employees back to work while ensuring their social distancing and safety.”
