Riedel employs DisTag for its employees


Riedel has wasted no time in deploying its recently devised DisTag distance monitoring device at its Wuppertal HQ, where it is playing an essential role in the company's gradual resumption of onsite operations. As employees of the Managed Technology Division return to work, each member is either carrying or wearing the DisTag.

Measuring 93mm by 41mm and weighing 61 grams, DisTag is geared towards media and event production, industrial operations, retail, medical centres, public institutions and educational facilities. The integrated battery allows up to 12 hours of operation, with three signal levels, a vibration alarm (haptic), a three-stage LED signal (visual) and a three-stage sound signal (acoustic). The proximity limits of the warning signals can be individually defined and adjusted in accordance with local regulations for social distancing. Individual tags can be divided into compatible groups using the friendly function, whereby no alarms are triggered if users come into close contact with each other.

Riedel's Managed Technology Division supplies turnkey solutions for media production and global events. Based on a scalable signal backbone, solutions include intercom systems and fibre-based networks for distribution of video, audio and data signals. Riedel technology is currently being used on numerous international projects including festivals, international summits and global sporting events.

“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,” said Riedel Communications Managed Technology Division director, Lutz Rathmann. “It's an ideal opportunity for our own employees to prove the concept for DisTag. Tools like this are making it possible for companies around the world to start getting their employees back to work while ensuring their social distancing and safety.”
