11 Jan 2021
Providing greater flexibility in installation, EAS Acousto-Magnetic technology has wider detection range compare to other EAS systems. It is highly suitable to large retail settings like department stores, clothing stores, hardware outlets, and electrical goods stores.
AM technology works on a lower frequency than RF, making its security labels detection accurate. It is perfect for use with liquids and metallic objects as there would be no disruption of the signal.
The antenna can be placed on a base or hidden under the floor. Similar to RF technology, AM security tags are available in different types and sizes depending on its application. Hard tags, which can be pin type or lanyard type, can be reused and adhesive soft tags, on the other hand, can be deactivated.
