  • Publication number: 20080297347
    Abstract: A system and an analogous method which automatically configures electronic article surveillance (EAS) devices coupled to a network, includes a server coupled to the network. The server may include software or hardware which (1) listens on a specified port for connection requests from at least one coupled EAS network device; (2) accepts the connection request from at least one coupled EAS network device; (3) queries at least one coupled EAS network device for information relating to at least one EAS network device; and (4) configures at least one coupled EAS network device based upon the information received from at least one EAS network device.

  • Patent number: 5995002
    Abstract: A method for initializing an electronic article surveillance (EAS) system which transmits pulses into an interrogation zone and receives signals from the interrogation zone in a sequence of multiple successive transmit and receive windows during each line period of an AC mains supply energizing the EAS system, associated with a corresponding apparatus, comprises the steps of: (a.) determining whether a delay value is stored in a nonvolatile memory; (b.)if the delay value is stored in the nonvolatile memory, loading the stored delay value into a delay control register, terminating the initializing and omitting all remaining steps; (c.) if the delay value is not stored in the nonvolatile memory, loading a first delay value into the delay control register; (d.) determining whether noise in a certain receive window is less than a threshold level; (e.) if the noise is less than the threshold level, terminating the initializing and omitting all remaining steps; (f.

  • Patent number: 5969659
    Abstract: An arrangement for improving the operation of an analog to digital converter (A/D), which can form part of an integrated circuit, the A/D converter being coupled to a reference voltage and having a plurality of input pins associated therewith comprises: a resistor divider having a plurality of resistors coupled in series, the resistor divider having an upper node coupled to a source of voltage to be converted, having a lower node coupled to a source of reference potential and having a plurality of intermediate nodes; and, each of the upper intermediate nodes being coupled to a respective one of the input pins of the A/D converter. The A/D converter can have enhanced resolution and/or an extended dynamic range when the voltage level being tested is divided arid the reference voltage is reduced.

  • Patent number: 5341125
    Abstract: A deactivating device for deactivating a dual status EAS tag for use in an EAS system in which the device utilizes a detection field for detecting the presence of an active tag in a detection/deactivation zone and in which the device further utilizes a deactivation field which is matched to the detection field.
