Nedap launches RF to RFID upgrade for retailers
Nov 11th, 11:52
Nedap, a global manufacturer of loss prevention and stock management solutions, today announced its redesigned version of the successful FL45 pedestal, now with a simplified future-proof RFID upgrade path. With ten thousands of pedestals already installed at leading international fashion retailers, the FL45 is a proven high performance product for loss prevention purposes, especially designed for the retail sector.
RFID upgrade path
The FL45 pedestal can initially be installed as an Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) system with RF detection and easily be upgraded later to a hybrid RF/RFID system. The RFID reader is simply clipped into the already installed pedestal, which makes it possible to quickly roll-out RFID to hundreds of stores within a short timeframe. This protects retailers’ investments in EAS security systems, as the existing pedestal and electronics can stay in place.
The state-of-the-art reader and antenna design ensure optimal read performance, even in challenging environments. Other unique features are advanced tag filtering, direction detection, visitor counting and metal detection, which are fully integrated in the same pedestal.
“With this hybrid solution, retailers can be absolutely sure that they make the right choice for today and tomorrow. As the RFID reader and antenna can simply be added later, retailers can roll-out RFID in their stores extremely fast, whenever they are ready. The FL45 really takes RFID readiness and upgradability to the next level,“ according to Rob Schuurman, managing director at Nedap Retail.
