RFID Loss Prevention Systems

The AdvanGate is a loss prevention system based on RFID UHF. It comprises a pedestal with RFID antennas, an embedded reader, controller and alarm combining EAS and RFID functions in one system.

The AdvanGate will firstly detect the presence of an RFID Tagged item. If the EPC code of the tag then corresponds with the retailer specific code programmed on the AdvanGate, and if the product has not been sold, the system will trigger an audible alarm. It offers benefits over conventional EAS technology in that only a tag or label relating to the retail client will trigger an alarm – no more incoming false alarms from neighbouring stores. Equally, it can be used to identify incidents of bulk theft, in which several tagged items pass through the exit at once.

The greater read distances achieved with UHF RFID technology enable the AdvanGate to be installed at aisle widths of up to 4.0m with full detection across an entrance. This can be further enhanced with overhead and underfloor antenna to create a clear and clean entrance to welcome customers into a store, but provide a strong visual deterrent that product is secure inside.
