The background to the product development of the distancer.

Distancer GmbH is a subsidiary of PHYTEC Messtechnik GmbH.

The electronic bodyguard was commissioned by the management within PHYTEC out of its own entrepreneurial necessity and developed for its own staff in order to maintain development and production at the Mainz site, which is working under high pressure on government contracts from Germany (for a well-known manufacturer of anaesthesia equipment) and France.

"One of PHYTEC France's major customers has developed a respiratory support system managed by our phyCORE-i.MX 6 quad-core module. The French government has asked all suppliers of ventilators to guarantee their production rates. PHYTEC has been asked to supply the modules that will enable the production of these valuable devices for corona patients in the shortest possible time. Many thanks to all those who have made it possible to maintain production at PHYTEC in order to guarantee everyone the best possible chances of recovery".
