Title
(EN) ANTI-THEFT PUSHER WITH INCREMENTAL DISTANCE DETECTION
(FR) POUSSEUR ANTIVOL À DÉTECTION DE DISTANCE INCRÉMENTIELLE
Abstract
(EN)
A retail merchandise pusher is configured for sliding along a pusher assembly track. The pusher assembly is mountable to a retail merchandise shelf. The pusher includes a housing, a spring drum rotatably mounted within the housing, and a coil spring mounted to the spring drum. The coil spring is coilable and uncoilable upon rotation of the spring drum. A controller is coupled to a sensor arrangement within the housing. The sensor arrangement has a spring drum sensor for detecting rotation of the spring drum. A direction sensor detects a direction of rotation of the spring drum. An incremental distance sensor detects incremental movement of the pusher. The controller is configured to calculate, based on data from the sensor arrangement, a total distance and direction of travel by the pusher, and to generate an alarm when the pusher travels more than a threshold distance within a predetermined period of time.

L'invention concerne un pousseur de marchandises de détail qui est configuré pour coulisser le long d'une piste d'ensemble pousseur. L'ensemble pousseur peut être monté sur une étagère de marchandises de détail. Le pousseur comprend un boîtier, un tambour à ressort monté de manière rotative dans le boîtier, et un ressort hélicoïdal monté sur le tambour à ressort. Le ressort hélicoïdal peut être enroulé et déroulé lors de la rotation du tambour à ressort. Un dispositif de commande est couplé à un agencement de capteur dans le boîtier. L'agencement de capteur comprend un capteur de tambour à ressort pour détecter la rotation du tambour à ressort. Un capteur de direction détecte une direction de rotation du tambour à ressort. Un capteur de distance incrémentielle détecte un mouvement incrémentiel du pousseur. Le dispositif de commande est configuré pour calculer, sur la base de données provenant de l'agencement de capteur, une distance totale et une direction de déplacement totale par le pousseur, et générer une alarme lorsque le pousseur se déplace de plus d'une distance de seuil pendant une période de temps prédéterminée.
