Installing the modern, wall-mounted and robust breathalyser is an excellent way for licensed premises to be seen adhering to the responsible serving of alcohol.
SoberPoint 3 Wave now offers cashless payment with users able to pay for their individual test via credit card, debit card and contactless payment methods such as PayPass, PayWave, Samsung Pay and Apple Pay.
Venues and events can encourage patrons to take a breath test without the need for cash, tokens, or small change. They simply swipe their card or tap and go to make a payment and begin the test via a regular cylindrical straw.
Make extra revenue
With low set up and maintenance costs, venues can choose the charge per breath test that patrons will pay. Revenue can go into a nominated financial account for easy clearance and monitoring.
Venues or events may even choose to donate all profits to charity, as a Melbourne casino does from its 21 units.
The breathalyser's built-in LCD screen can be used as advertising space for promotions or in-house announcements. To do this, users simply load slideshows or videos (with audio) onto a memory card or USB and plug this into the SoberPoint 3 Wave to play continuously.
The upgraded SoberPoint 3 Wave features Andatech's own high tech FXCell3 fuel cell sensor, which delivers highly accurate BAC readings within seconds with clear visual and audio cues.
The results shown range up to 0.250% BAC at an accuracy range of +/- 0.005% BAC, the highest level of accuracy available in breathalysers today. Readings remain accurate even with high volume testing.
Help prevent drink driving
An important responsibility of any establishment that serves alcohol — whether permanently or temporarily, is helping to prevent drunk driving situations.
If a patron of any bar, hotel, pub, restaurant, club, event or venue gets drunk at the establishment then drives and causes an accident, both the employee who served the customer or guest and the establishment could be held legally responsible for letting that person get behind the wheel of their car or get that drunk in the first place.
By practising the responsible serving of alcohol and encouraging customers to take a breath test before they leave, venues can help to prevent drink driving.
Plug & go
Installation is a simple matter of hanging it on a wall and plugging it in. It’s then ready to take tests. A separate straw dispenser can be attached below the unit.
A highlight of the unit is the replaceable sensor module that makes it easy to maintain. Regardless of how many tests it has taken, every six months the old sensor can simply be replaced with a new one while the old one is sent back to Andatech for recalibration.
Designed for a long lifespan, the Andatech SoberPoint 3 Wave is certified to Australian Standards AS3547 and comes with a 12-month warranty.
