To disable Emergency mode press and hold down the Power key on your device and then touch Emergency mode.

I browsed a dozen manuals for galaxy tabs and none of them mentioned having the Emergency Mode screen my S5 phone has.
Here is a link to the US support site with essentially the same info (different graphics) as the link Chris gave...
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00050849/

i.e. touch the 'more' icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, then choose Turn off Emergency mode (after fully charging).

If that doesn't get the tab back to normal, please provide the exact model code of the Tab S. It should be on the back of the tablet, resembling GT-P5110, GT-P1010, GT-N8013, et cetera.

Do you mean that you want to factory reset it?

If yes, you can double wipe it and the procedure is as follows:-

1. Power off the tablet

2. Press "Volume Up" + "Home" + "Power" buttons at the same time

3. You will enter recovery mode

4. Press "Voume Up" and "Volume Down"  buttons to navigate and select "wipe date / factory reset" and press "Home" button to confirm.

5. If you want all user data to be removed so that no one can restore it, you can repeat Step 2 and Step 3 and in Step 4 and select "Wipe cache partition"  and press "Home" button to confirm.

6. On restart, the tablet will be factory reset and all user data will be removed.

Best solution on point
Yes, well... most users won't want their data wiped just because they ran the battery so low it switched to Emergency mode; just charge the battery and take it out of Emergency mode. :)
