Checkpoint Systems introduces new line of EAS solutions
Thorofare, N.J. – Checkpoint Systems, Inc. is launching its next generation of intelligent electronic article surveillance (EAS) solutions. The Evolve iRange comprises six different EAS antennas, a broad range of EAS labels designed for visible and source-tagging application to various types of merchandise, and the Counterpoint iD deactivation unit for faster and consistent deactivation at point-of-sale (POS).
Together, the portfolio is designed to deter theft from potential shoplifters and provide confidence that protected merchandise has been deactivated efficiently to avoid false alarms for honest shoppers, and that the antenna alarms are indeed shoplifting attempts so store personnel can respond appropriately.
EAS Jammer detection technology is one of the latest additions to the Evolve iRange. Integrated into antennas within the portfolio, the system identifies if an EAS “jammer” has been brought into the store and activates an alarm, which alerts staff to the potential threat. A selection of new visible labeling solutions is also now available.
