DIFFERENT EAS COMPONENTS


EAS systems consist of the different components:

DETECTION SYSTEMS

Deployed at retail store exits and configured to create a surveillance zone responsible for detecting hard tags or live labels, EAS detection systems are available in different formats for retailers’ varying requirements and store design. They can come in Pedestals, Aisle protection systems and concealed systems.

EAS HARD TAGS AND LABELS

Attached to each product for protection and available in a variety of formats for different types of merchandise. Robust hard tags and low-cost, small footprint EAS labels utilise Ultra•Max® Acousto-Magnetic technology for exceptional detection rates and immunity from false alarm.

EAS DETACHER AND DEACTIVATOR

Designed to ergonomic standards and for ease of use and great user flexibility at the point of sale, EAS deactivators and detachers are deployed to efficiently deactivate EAS labels or remove EAS hard tags post-purchase, helping retailers maximize cashier efficiency for faster checkout lane throughput.
