Title
(EN) COMBINATION EAS AND RFID SECURITY TAG HAVING STRUCTURE FOR ORIENTING A HYBRID ANTENNA RFID ELEMENT
(FR) ÉTIQUETTE DE SÉCURITÉ À SYSTÈME ÉLECTRONIQUE DE SURVEILLANCE D'ARTICLES ET D'IDENTIFICATION PAR RADIOFRÉQUENCE EN COMBINAISON AYANT UNE STRUCTURE POUR ORIENTER UN ÉLÉMENT D'IDENTIFICATION PAR RADIOFRÉQUENCE À ANTENNE HYBRIDE
Abstract
(EN)
A security tag (10) including independent EAS (16) and RFID (18) components disposed in a housing (12) configured for geometric placement of the RFID and EAS components for optimum RFID performance. The EAS component (16) is situated in a first compartment (17) and the RFID component (18) is situated in a second compartment (19). The RFID component includes a hybrid antenna RFID inlay (24) and an IC chip (30). The tag housing (12) includes a key structure (38) that minimizes the de-tuning of both the EAS (16) and RFID components (18) by positioning the IC chip (30) such that the IC chip (30) is closer to a first side (25) of the second compartment (19) than the second side (21) of the second compartment (19) when the antenna inlay (24) is inserted within the housing (12). The housing (12) further includes one or more pins that position the RFID inlay (24) closer to the bottom interior surface to further insure optimal RFID read performance.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une étiquette de sécurité (10), qui comprend des composants de système électronique de surveillance d'articles (16) et d'identification par radiofréquence (18) indépendants disposés dans un boîtier (12) configuré pour la disposition géométrique des composants d'identification par radiofréquence et de système électronique de surveillance d'articles pour des performances d'identification par radiofréquence optimales. Le composant de système électronique de surveillance d'articles (16) est situé dans un premier compartiment (17), et le composant d'identification par radiofréquence (18) est situé dans un second compartiment (19). Le composant d'identification par radiofréquence contient une incrustation d'identification par radiofréquence à antenne hybride (24) et une puce à circuits intégrés (30). Le boîtier d'étiquette (12) comprend une structure de clé (38) qui minimise le désaccordage des deux composants de système électronique de surveillance d'articles (16) et d'identification par radiofréquence (18) par le positionnement de la puce à circuits intégrés (30) de telle sorte que la puce à circuits intégrés (30) est plus proche d'un premier côté (25) du second compartiment (19) que du second côté (21) du second compartiment (19) lorsque l'incrustation d'antenne (24) est insérée à l'intérieur du boîtier (12). Le boîtier (12) comprend en outre une ou plusieurs broches qui positionnent l'incrustation d'identification par radiofréquence (24) plus près de la surface intérieure inférieure, de façon à assurer encore davantage des performances de lecture d'identification par radiofréquence optimales.
