The EAS system is an anti-theft technology that prevents shoplifting by attaching electronic detectable tags to products. Whenever an unbilled item passes through the store's door, the retailer is alerted via an electronic door sensor. The market can be segmented by end user, EAS component and EAS system type. EAS system types include magnetic systems, acoustic magnetic systems, radio frequency systems, and microwave systems. The magnetic system consists of amorphous metal strips and is detected with the help of the transmitter and receiver. EAS components include an electronic antenna, a deactivator or remover, and an electronic tag. The antenna has an electronic circuit board system that alerts when an electronic tag passes through it.
