Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) systems

Since it first rolled out in the 1960s, Electronic Article Surveillance has become one of the most effective and popular methods of securing valuable retail merchandise against theft. Its usage is so widespread, that it is estimated that almost three-quarters (73%) of retailers harness its power.

Meanwhile, the past 40 years have seen major developments and improvements in both its detection capability and visual appeal, with a wide range of tags and pedestals available to suit any environment.

Know your frequency.

There are three commonly used types of EAS – radio frequency (RF), acousto magnetic (AM), and electromagnetic (EM). The main difference between them is the frequency at which they operate. This frequency is measured in hertz. Each type of EAS has benefits, making some systems more suited to specific environments than others.

If your business is considering an EAS solution as part of your loss prevention strategy, here are some facts that you need to know.

Radio Frequency

  • RF Technology (8.2 MHz) is the most mature and cost effective EAS solution available.
  • This solution is widely used in the apparel industry along with hard and soft tags offering a very good detection range;
  • Integrated synchronisation settings and LED Environmental Diagnostics

Like other EAS technologies, swept-rf uses a transmitter to create a surveillance area where tags and labels are detected. The transmitter sends a signal that varies between 7.4 and 8.8 MHz (millions of cycles per second), which is why it is called swept; it sweeps over a range of frequencies. The transmitter signal energizes the swept-rf tag or label, which is composed of a circuit containing a capacitor and an inductor or coil, both of which store electrical energy. When connected together in a loop, the components can pass energy back and forth or “resonate.” The frequency at which the circuit resonates is controlled by matching the storage capacity of the coil and capacitor. The tag responds by emitting a signal that is detected by a receiver. In addition to the small tag signal, the receiver also responds to the much larger transmitter signal. By detecting a phase difference between these two signals, and other properties of the tag signal, the receiver recognizes the presence of a tag and generates an alarm.

EM antennas and EM technology is a niche solution that offers a great solution for libraries and DIY stores pharmaceutical, butchery and retail stores. It has the advantage of using small, thin adhesive labels for libraries which can be deactivated and reactivated. The discreet security labels are read by a security scanner within retail stores and libraries.  Library security labels can a deactivated upon check out and reactivated upon return.
