Digital detection system

September 2002 Asset Management, EAS, RFID

Sensormatic recently announced the launch of its RF detection system, the Digital RFX-100, which will be deployed in specific EMEA and Latin American markets. The new Digital RFX-100 boutique system provides reliable RF anti-shoplifting protection in a sturdy, tubular, open-look pedestal design. It can be installed in either exit or food/aisle applications. The system consists of a transmitter pedestal and receiver pedestal, each with full electronics, and a multivoltage power supply. It operates at the typical RF frequency of 8,2 MHz and features digital signal processing (DSP) to ensure optimum performance and minimal phantom alarms.

Key advantages include:

* Automatic gain control (AGC). The system continually adjusts to the environment, blocking out electrical noise that may hinder detection or cause false alarms.

* Modular electronics. Electrical circuits are sealed inside rectangular modules that can be removed easily from the transmitter or receiver PC boards. This enables easy upgrades as technology advancements occur.

* Performance. The Digital RFX-100 system uses advanced digital technology to ensure peak detection performance across exits up to 1,8 m (6 ft) wide with hard tags and 1,2 m (4 ft) with 4x4 paper labels.

* Built-in alarm light. An alarm light is built into the receiver pedestal's vertical frame near the top.

* Tag and label compatibility. The system works best with typical 4x4 cm and 5x5 cm adhesive labels and a variety of hard tags.

* Easy installation. The system is pre-assembled and factory-tuned to keep installation costs to a minimum. Adjusting system sensitivity is typically the only manual adjustment required.

* Multiple configurations. The system can be used in two, three and more pedestal configurations. Multiple pedestals of five or more may require a synchronisation unit (CSU), available with either plastic fibre-optic (PFO) or coaxial cable.

Target markets

The Digital RFX-100 system is available to:

* Tier three customers who want a low priced EAS system. Typically, these customers accept lower performance (exit width, pick), RF defeat issues (detuned labels, tag shielding, etc) and increased false alarms.

* Customers who want a single source of EAS (RF, AM and/or EM) supply.
