Radiofrequency technology (RF) applied to anti-theft systems for retail shops is based on an oscillating thin spiral-shaped LC circuit, used to radiate the high-frequency electromagnetic waves that are necessary to the system.

Although different radio frequencies can be set, 8.2 MHz is the one that is typically used. The circuit that is used as a transmitter and receiver of the waves is very simple as well as economic.

The devices which are placed near the doors of the shop (antennas or shoplifting pillars) work as a couple being both the source and receiver of the signal, so the process comprises the following steps:

  • The TRANSMITTING ANTENNA sends a constant radio signal radio in its proximity.
  • The signal is received by a LABEL or an ANTI-THEFT PLATE (or TAG).
  • If the label or the anti-theft plate has not been correctly deactivated at the cash register (through a DETACHER or a DEACTIVATOR), it will send another signal.
  • The signal is received by the RECEIVER ANTENNA: at this point, the alarm goes off.
