Abstract [en]

Electronic article surveillance (EAS) is widely used in shops and libraries together with an RF-tag attached to the goods or books in order to prevent shoplifting. By implementing the addition of a moisture sensor to the RF-tag, other functions become possible, including the ability to use as an alarm with regards to frozen goods, which have been shipped but which have melted and have, subsequently, refrozen. In- relation to care for the elderly, one time-consuming step involves checking whether there is the necessity for a change of diaper and this can, instead, be based on an RF-tag with an EAS-system alarm. A preliminary investigation was made using the moisture sensors, which involved how the resistance changes when liquid and/or heat is applied. A simulation of the LCCR circuit (RF-tag with the sensor) was conducted in order to determine how the resonance frequency changes for different resistances levels. When the moisture sensors are applied to the RF-tag with the correct resistance no alarm will be triggered, but will be triggered when water is added to the moisture sensor. In order for the tag to be able to induce energy from the transmitter in the EAS-system the resistance must be less than ten ohms in relation to the entire tag. Results show that the implementation of the sensor on the RF-tag is possible and that it works in a satisfactory manner.

Elektroniska varularm EAS (Electronic article surveillance) är vida använt i butiker och bibliotek tillsammans med RF-tagg som är fäst på varor böcker för att förhindra snatteri. Genom att implementera fuktsensor till RF-taggen kan den få andra funktioner som då kan användas till larm om frysvaror fraktas har tinat men fryst igen, samt till äldrevården där ett tidsdödande moment är att hela tiden kontrollera om vårdtagaren behöver byta blöja. I stället kan RF-taggen med EAS-systemet larma. Förundersökning gjordes med fuktsensorn som är en sensor för hur resistansen ändras när vätska och värme förs på den. Simulering av LCCR krets (RF-tagg med sensor) gjordes för att se hur resonansfrekvensen ändras vid olika resistansnivåer. När fuktsensorn är applicerad på RF-tagg med rätt resistans triggas inte alarm, men däremot när vatten förs på fuktsensorn. För att taggen ska kunna inducera energin från sändaren i EAS-system måste resistansen vara lägre än tio ohm på hela RF-taggen. Resultatet visar att implementering av sensor på RF-tagg är möjlig och fungerar.
