What is an EAS handheld detector?
An EAS handheld detector monitors or samples the output of an EAS circuit and develops a dc output voltage pro-portional to the power at that point.
What do you do with an EAS handheld detector?
EAS handheld detectors are used primarily to measure and control EAS power in wireless systems.
Why are power measurement and control so important?
EAS power, rather than voltage, is the primary measure of a wireless signal. In a receiver, signal strength is a key factor in maintaining reliable com-munications. In the transmitter, the amount of power transmitted is critical because of regulatory guidelines. It’s also important for maintaining the range and reliability of the radio link.
