EAS: Why we re-invent it every day

March 2018 Retail (Industry), Asset Management, EAS, RFID, Integrated Solutions

The RFID Retrofit Panel is a simple, cost-effective upgrade to the Sensormatic Synergy 2.0 and 2.5 ABS pedestals.

This easy-to-install upgrade delivers Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to existing Acousto-Magnetic (AM) systems to provide shrink and inventory visibility, in addition to protecting Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) infrastructure.

The panel leverages software-controlled beam-steerable technology for directional reading of AM/RFID-tagged merchandise at the exit. This provides retailers with real-time visibility into their assets, while the detection system uses Sensormatic AM EAS technology for the highest level of theft detection.

When coupled with Tyco’s TrueVUE software, the Synergy RFID Retrofit Panel delivers advanced functionality to increase inventory visibility, minimise markdowns, and replenish out-of-stocks, helping to maximise sales and increase customer satisfaction. Retailers also gain deeper insight into what, when, and how specific items go missing to help optimise store operations.

For standalone RFID applications, the retrofit panel can be installed onto the 2.0 and 2.5 ABS pedestals without the AMS9060 controller.
