A security tag can be categorized by frequency such as Checkpoint frequencies, Sensormatic frequencies & Knogo frequencies.

Checkpoint security tags for retail stores are mainly 8.2 MHz and come in two sizes and two shapes.  There are the black mini tags which are approximately 1 ½” x 2” and remove using a special magnetic remover (can not be removed with a standard type over the counter magnet).  Black maxi tags are a bit larger, rectangular with rounded corners and uses a flat headed pin.  The smaller black mini security tag is good for use on all smaller items and the larger black maxi security tag is great for larger coats and jackets.  The larger the tag the better it will ring the security system pillar.

At one time Checkpoint Corp manufactured a few systems that rang low frequency security tags.  These 1.8 MHz tags were only made for a few years and are not very prevalent in today’s electronic article surveillance landscape.  Low frequency systems like this were used because they offered less false alarms in some environments however these systems can not detect the paper sticky label security tags.  Retailers tend to use the universal frequency of 8.2 MHz.  Video stores then had difficulty with their rented videos ringing at retail stores when located in the same mall.  This prompted Checkpoint to come up with a 9.5 MHz non-deactivatable label security tag for video rental stores.  This tag could easily be used over and over again without being erased or setting off security pillars at nearby stores that customers would enter. 

Sensormatic frequencies include the older microwave (no longer manufactured) and ultramax or acusto magnetic.  This type of equipment is much more expensive than RF radio frequency security tags but can be used without false alarming in closer proximity to metal.  The older style gator tags are economical and can be found used quite reasonably.  The newer supertag style is a bit harder to remove for both the customer and the sales clerk.  The newer removers tend to wear out in about 1 year and are much more expensive than the checkpoint style removers. 

Knogo frequency security tags are older security tags that in the USA were mostly 2.0 MHz tags.  Again a low frequency security tagging system avoided false alarming issues but will not ring the newer paper disposable sticky label security tags.  In Europe this same style large round security tag was tuned to 3.25 MHz.
