USS, announced AM soft Label Product Line


USS, recently announced the organization’s ability to manufacture and sell its own line of dual resonator acousto-magnetic (AM) electronic article surveillance (EAS) labels.

The announcement is reportedly significant given a long-standing, exclusive patent on all dual resonator label technology held by a major international competitor; a deal that only very recently expired.

Triple resonators AM soft labels use a strip of magnetostrictive, ferromagnetic amorphous metal (metglas), coupled with a strip of magnetically semi-hard metallic strips. Together, when in an activated state, the strips interact with frequencies emitted by EAS detection systems to activate alarms to alert and prevent cases of accidental or intentional theft. The am soft labels small size, footprint, low cost and ease of application and deactivation, make the product ideal for merchandise source tagging and anti-organized retail crime (ORC) efforts.
