    Für die Sicherung von Waren, die in Blisterverpackungen verkauft werden wie beispielsweise Kopfhörern oder tragbaren Freisprecheinrichtungen für Mobilfunktelefone werden in erster Linie Sicherungsvorrichtungen in Form von Klebeetiketten verwendet. For securing goods which are sold in blister packs such as headphones or portable handsfree for mobile phones primarily safety devices in the form of adhesive labels are used. Diese Art der Sicherung ist jedoch mit verschiedenen Nachteilen behaftet. This type of backup, however, has several disadvantages. So kann ein Dieb bei kleinen Produkten die Blisterverpackung in relativ unauffälliger Weise öffnen und die Ware daraus entnehmen. So a thief can open the blister pack with small products in relatively unobtrusively and remove the merchandise from them. Ein weiteres Problem besteht darin, daß der auf das Etikett aufgedruckte Schwingkreis bzw. die Übertragungsspule des Transponders ihre Eigenschaften bei Druckeinwirkung oder auch in der Nähe von Metall ändern, so daß sie nicht für alle Produkte geeignet und auch auf einfache weise manipuliert werden können. Another problem is that the printed on the label resonant circuit or the transfer coil of the transponder change their properties when pressure is applied or near metal so that they can not be suitable for all products and manipulated in a simple manner.
