Safe Spacer Supplied by Emtec

Keep people safe and workplaces open

In April 2020 Emtec needed a solution to help people get back to work. That's why we decided to partner with IK Multimedia's decades of expertise in electronic and wireless product development in the creation of the SAFE SPACER - an innovative social distancing monitor that is helping businesses to create a Covid secure workplace.

Safe Spacer is a new lightweight wearable device that helps maintain social distancing in the workplace by alerting wearers when other units come within 2 m or 6 feet.

It offers selectable light vibration and sound alerts to adapt to any work environment and can also log contacts for fast tracing in case of a reported exposure.

Safe Spacer uses cutting edge Ultra Wideband to achieve precise distance up to 10 times more accurate than traditional Bluetooth.

Its compact design means Safe Spacer can be worn on a wristband, belt or lanyard ensuring it works in the widest range of applications.

Each Safe Spacer can be charged individually, or the optional S-Charger docking/charging stations allow up to 25 Safe Spacers to charge simultaneously. Three S-Chargers can be chained together, allowing you to charge up to 75 at a time. The S-Charger can also be connected to a computer to easily configure multiple units, customising alert distances and types.

Safe Spacer is waterproof and therefore easy to clean and sanitise. It's ideal for multi shift facilities or offices, hotels, museums etc that are open to the public and visitors.

Safe Spacer makes it easy to monitor compliance and log collisions for contact tracing allowing virtually any organisation to check compliance, identify problem areas and keep employees and visitors safe.
