ARE VITAG PRODUCTS COMPATIBLE WITH SENSORMATIC AND OTHER SUPPLIER SYSTEMS?
Vitag’s products are compatible with those of other suppliers’ such as Sensormatic® and Checkpoint®, so you can easily integrate Vitag products to extend or enhance your existing system. All you need to do is match the AM or RF frequency amongst different brands in the market. More than likely, a detection system and its tags are either one frequency or the other. Most Vitag security tags are available in both AM and RF frequencies.
Vitag’s AM Sensormatic Security tags and are compatible with a range of manufacturer’s products such as the Sensormatic UltraMax Acousto-Magnetic technology. The Sensormatic range of products also works on a frequency of 58Khz.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
EAS systems operate from a simple principle regardless of the manufacturer or the specific type of technology used. A transmitter sends a signal at defined frequencies to a receiver. This creates a surveillance area, usually at a checkout aisle or an exit in the case of retail stores. Upon entering the surveillance area, a tag or label with special characteristics creates a disturbance, which is detected by the receiver. A microcomputer checks the tag signal detected by the receiver to ensure it is at the right frequency, occurs in time synchronized to the transmitter, at the proper level, and at the correct repetition rate. If the criteria are met, an alarm occurs. With this in mind Vitag’s 58KHz Acousto Magnetic security tags and detection equipment is compatible with other suppliers’ such as Sensormatic who’s systems use the same frequency.
