Systems for the electronic display of information at an object
eLabels (also called electronic shelf labels since they originated in the retail area) use electronic ink (e-Ink) to present content on a display at low power cost (hence long battery life).
The high-resolution displays in sizes from 1.6″ to 11.6″ can display text, simple geometric shapes as well as scanable barcodes and QR codes in three different colors, which can represent e.g. workplace-related QA or work instructions. The eLabels are optionally equipped with a multi-colored LED (e.g. to indicate priority) as well as with up to two response buttons (e.g. for page change or acknowledgement).
Content to be displayed is transmitted wirelessly via a gateway, thus enabling centrally controlled updates to each eLabel display. Energy is only consumed when the content of the display changes or to regularly poll the gateway.
With the help of wireless transmission of your data to the eLabels, you can update product, status and order data at storage locations, load carriers and containers as well as on work orders in progress in no time at all. The need for paper labels is completely eliminated.
eLabels can be supplemented with tracking technology, which makes it possible to provide location-based updates to the displays (e.g. on entering a new process step). The extremely low energy radio data transmission supports both stationary and mobile applications.
