The Overhead unit consists of a primary enclosure containing Checkpoint’s unique UHF RFID reader,
specifically designed and optimised for retail applications. The box is mounted above the exit door,
and reads RFID tags that pass through the door. In addition, two satellite antennas are installed adjacent
to the reader box, and an alarm box is installed near the exit door to provide audible and visible alerts.
On-board filtering software ensures alarm integrity by effectively identifying tags that are moving through the
coverage area, rather than alarming on tagged items that are located nearby. This dramatically increases
read accuracy, virtually eliminating false alarms caused by unwanted (also known as ”stray” or ”bleed” reads.
In addition, this scan easily be combined with Checkpoint’s HALO software solution to provide real-time
accurate inventory visibility, enabling retailers to reduce out-of-stocks and increase sales.
– Coverage of wider and higher exit doorways (20 feet wide and 12 feet high) making it suitable for
mall-based retailers and department stores.
– Improved RFID electronics for greater read accuracy and fewer false alarms.
– The ability to detect the number of tagged units in a smaller ”active zone,”resulting in improved front-of-store merchandising.
Checkpoint’s Overhead 2.0 offers apparel retailers improved functionality, more flexible deployment, greater benefits and better
performance than competitor’s solutions.
Checkpoint’s UF-1 is uniquely positioned to advance floor based RFID EAS system performance to the next level, Using patented Checkpoint Wirama
Radar TM technology, the underfloor RFID-enabled solution is able to identify the direction of a tag passing over the solution, whether into the store, out of the store,
or along the door. It is also able to determine if an item is located nearby the exit or potentially being stolen– minimising false alarms.
Suited to a wide array of projects, from those wanting aesthetically pleasing open entrances to where ceiling height simply prohibits the use of overheads, including:
WIDE OPENINGS required to remain obstacle free for movement of
large objects (DIY centres)
MALL RESTRICTIONS governing the use of EAS pedestals across
STORES requiring special attention to design considerations, store
aesthetics or corporate identity
The UF-1 is strong enough to be buried with top surface flush with
slab concreate level but below finished floor surface or screed level
without compromising the strength of the floor.
Wirama Radar uniquely delivers unprecedented accuracy and context in
reporting the location, direction and movements of RFID tagged merchandise
in a three-dimensional view. Wirama Radar is able to determine if an apparel
item is simply hanging nearby an exit door or potentially being stolen.
