  • EAS antennas
  • The panel installed inside the entrance to the store is called an EAS antenna (also referred to as a store sensor) and consists of an electronic device that detects security tags (security clothing tags) leaving the store.

  • Trolley guards
  • Stainless steel trolley bumpers prevent the antennas from being damaged by trolleys.

  • Pins, labels and lanyards
  • Pins that fit into the tags are available for various types of tags including ink pins which releases ink and spoils the garment when removed illegally. Sticky labels are available in AM and RF technologies, ideal for tagging small items. Lanyards are ideal for securing tags onto bags and shoes.

These counters can be used to determine conversion rates in the retail environment. There are two different types, one is camera based called Footfall and the other is an LED beam that can either be built into the tops of the EAS posts or can be a stand alone unit on either side of the doorway (Dexilon Flux unit).
