What is an RF Antenna?
RF Antennas – Radio Frequency
RF antennas and RF technology is the most common type of EAS systems and is widely used by fashion retailers. However, the high frequency signals it uses makes it unsuitable for protecting liquids and metal items which effectively weaken the signal and prevent the alarm from triggering. For these types of products, AM or EM technology is preferred.
How does it work?
RF-tags contain a tiny electronic circuit. When it senses a particular frequency – the one sent out by the transmitter antenna in the store exit – it responds and this response is picked up by the reciever antenna. When this happens, the alarm is triggered.
