Electronic Labels (ESL), born for the GDO sector, have undergone a great technological transformation over the years that has led them from simple retail tools to innovative digital devices, revolutionizing other sectors apparently unrelated to it such as Manufacturing, Industry and Logistics.

How has the technology of Electronic Labels evolved?

Electronic Labels (ESL) were born about 30 years ago for the large-scale retail sector with the main aim of automatically updating the prices of shelf products.

With digital progress, they have evolved into interactive systems: not only to show the price, but also to make certain activities more efficient, such as displaying inventory, managing inventory, reordering goods, etc.

Various technological evolutions have allowed this technology to open up to the Industrial and Logistic world and in particular:

  • The advent of E-ink Graphic Displays, unlike LCD displays, has made it possible to view texts, barcodes, QR Codes and much more

  • The integration, since 2015, of high-visibility multicolor LED lights has made it possible to optimize multiple processes

  • The addition of integrated NFC tags has expanded the possibilities for interaction

  • The birth of multiple formats has allowed the use of ESL in very heterogeneous applications

  • Optimizing battery consumption has made this technology highly competitive

These evolutions have allowed the use of Electronic Labels far beyond traditional areas of application, targeting different markets such as the world of Production, Industrial Manufacturing and Logistics.
