The All-Tag Labels are paper thin, self-adhesive tags used to protect any type of non-metallic, hard goods item such as film, video tapes, books, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical items, or security cases for CD or DVD protection.
These labels can be used for source tagging, which is the process of embedding labels inside of retail merchandise at the point of manufacture or packaging. At the point-of-sale the labels are quickly and permanently deactivated with the use of an RF Deactivator. These labels are the same frequency (8.2 MHz) as Checkpoint Labels.
Length of 1.22 inches (31mm) and width of 1.26 inches (32mm) equates to a 38% smaller surface area than the competitor’s 1.5 inch square label (410). 19% higher relative power “Q”: The SuperLabel’s average Q is 80μ, compared to an average of 65μ for the competitor’s 410, and 75μ forAll-Tag’s equivalent 1.50 (38mm) x 1.65 inch (42 mm) label.
The higher Q provides comparable detection to 40 x 40mm labels. The higher Q enables the label to interact with deactivator sooner increasing the height from the counter at which the label is deactivated.
Smaller dimensions allow for tagging on smaller packaged items or hangtags. The size and cost of combination fabric/EAS identification labels can be reduced. These technological advances will result in the future introduction of labels with much higher detection and deactivation performance relative to label size.
“Q” – Relative power of the label – “Q” is a general term that is applied to the relative effectiveness of a circuit or circuit element. Generally, the higher the Q factor, the better or more efficient the circuit. It is a ratio of reactance to resistance (for a series circuit), and a ratio of resistance to reactance (for a parallel circuit). When compared to the same type of circuit, such as an RF EAS label, Q is a statement of relative performance. In the EAS business, a label with a higher Q value provides better detection and deactivation performance.
Label Detection – Label detection statistics are imprecise because there are a number of uncontrollable variables. Statements concerning a label’s “pick rate” should be used as a guideline only. Significant variables include the measured power of the label (Q); measured frequency of the label; tuning characteristics of the detection system; and the physical orientation of the label in relationship to the transmit signal. In general, the best performing labels are those with the highest Q value and the measured frequency closest to the center frequency of the band swept by the transmitter – all other factors equal.
