About ePaper displays

Electronic Paper Display (also called EPD or ePaper displays) is a display that doesn’t require power to operate. Just like actual paper, ePaper doesn’t need a backlight to display content, and the picture displayed mimics ink on paper.

The key advantages of ePaper displays are low energy needs, outstanding readability in the sunshine, and infinite viewing angles. These benefits make them an ideal choice for many industrial and consumer applications, such as e-prices, weather stations, smart homes, modern schedules, interactive signs, badges, and smartwatches.

Instead of applying changes manually, users may utilize a centralized Content Management System to make changes and have them appear in e-paper displays right away. It’s worth noting that EPD uses relatively little energy during such a content update.

Advantages of ePaper displays

Ultra-Low Power Consumption
Paper-like readability; e-ink technology
Excellent visibility even in direct sunlight
High reflectivity, high contrast, and resolution
Viewing angle of ~180°
Highly flexible technology
Prolonged battery life
Outstanding clarity
Reduced eye strain

How do ePaper displays work?

Let’s start by explaining how e-ink works. Small capsules filled with a transparent fluid containing microscopic particles are at its heart. Millions of these capsules are distributed on a thin sheet in an electronic paper display. The colors and electric charges of the particles inside the capsules might vary.

The electrodes are then placed above and below the capsule film. The particles with the associated charge migrate to the top or bottom of the capsule when a positive or negative electric field is supplied to an individual electrode. This is how pictures may be shown on the surface of an ePaper display.

Applications of ePaper displays

ePaper displays are the best option for industrial and consumer applications such as e-prices, weather stations, smart homes, modern timetables, interactive signs,

badges, and smartwatches.

Public transportation

One of the most appealing features of ePaper technologies is that they are well-suited to outdoor applications such as public transit timetables. The local authorities do not have to manually modify the information at each stop if the timetable changes.

Displays in smart cities

Another intriguing use of ePaper is information displays, which may be scattered throughout cities to show important information ranging from the weather forecast to entrance restrictions for certain buildings or organizations.

Digital price tags and boards

One of the most efficient uses of ePaper technologies is digital price tags and price boards. Also called e-prices, such price tags can be adjusted in real time based on the changing customer demand inside a retail facility.
