Checkpoint Systems – a global leader in retail technology solutions – has added a new sensor system to its NEO portfolio.
The NS40 provides grocery retailers a discreet but powerful in-lane loss prevention solution.
Designed to be installed at the checkout, the NEO-based NS40 antenna features an ultra-slim design with patented 360° circular array technology.
It is equipped with secure Bluetooth connectivity, which provides ease of installation as no floor cutting is required between checkout desks.
The NS40 can be tailored for any checkout configuration and mounted against metal without any adverse impact on detection rates.
It also offers retailers the ability to easily reposition and remodel the checkout space, when required, without expensive re-cabling or disruption to services.
The device effectively recognises non-deactivated tags and those being concealed after products are scanned and security labels deactivated.
The ‘early’ loss prevention alarm helps tackle incidents of non-deactivation promptly, reducing embarrassment for customers and shoplifting attempts.
It also aids the successful recovery of goods before they reach the exit doors.
Available in a standard brushed steel finish, the NS40 can be painted, powder-coated or vinyl wrapped to match a store’s visual identity.
NEO also offers data via the SaaS Cloud service, which helps retailers gain insight on store activity, improve shrinkage results and monitor store performance.
Simon Edgar, senior director of product management at Checkpoint Systems, commented, “Designed specifically for the grocery market, our new NS40 antenna has already been trialed successfully in Spain.
"Voice of customer feedback was crucial during this project to ensure the end solution exactly matched the use case requirements for in-lane grocery retailers. The design, detection and ease of installation are without doubt market leading.”
