E Ink Aurora displays feature an extended low-temperature operating range to allow retailers freedom to place electronic shelf labels next to the freezer – or in the freezer.
Aurora was developed to address retailers’ needs to integrate digital signage into cold temperature display cases, such as refrigerators or freezers. With operating temperature ranges of -15 to 10 degrees C and 0 to 50 degrees C, Aurora offers the same benefits as E Ink’s other display platforms – paper-like readability with a wide viewing angle. In addition, displays using Aurora are low power, running off of 2 small cell batteries, with a life-time of 5 years.
Aurora has been tuned for non-eReader applications, and is ideal for electronic shelf labels (ESLs) and smart cards in the retail, medical and logistics markets.
E Ink makes the lowest power displays in the ESL industry. Unlike other technologies, E Ink is bistable, which means it needs no power to hold an image or page of text. Learn more about how our ink significantly prolongs your battery life on our technology page.
