As mentioned above e-Paper displays can retain an image on the display with no power making these displays perfect for applications in the area of IoT, including electronic shelf labels, smart labels, smart home, smart wearables, smart logistics, smart healthcare, smart transportation, industrial instrumentation, and wireless communication.
E-paper differs from LCD because it only consumes power to change an image on the display. This is possible because E-paper is a bistable display technology, meaning that pixels will remain in a ‘selected’ state (dark) when chosen or in a ‘non-selected’ state (light) when not chosen. Dark ‘ON’ pixels can be controlled to display 16 grey shades on selected models and in more advanced modules, 7 different pixel colours are supported.
Once updated, the new display image will remain on the screen without the need for additional power, unlike traditional displays which require refreshing constantly, several times per second. This feature of the e-paper display means that battery operated devices using an e-ink technology display module can run for weeks or even months on a single battery charge.
A recent strategic partnership announced between our manufacturing partner and E-Ink holdings means e-Paper display modules can be brought to industrial applications with:
As cities continue to become smarter, the balance between delivering information to citizens and environmental concerns over carbon footprint and light pollution becomes more important. E-ink holdings have been awarded the Dark Sky certificate due to the unique attributes of their displays, only using power to switch images, not to continually display them, meaning the displays can be run using solar power, alleviating the need to be connected to the power grid.
E-paper displays are available in screen sizes from 1.54" right up to 42". Below are a selection of products, but please get in touch for your specific display requirements.
We aim to offer reliable and long-term solutions to our B2B customers. If you are a business and would like to discuss your display and/or embedded system requirements please contact us below
