In this section, we have answered common questions on Papercast’s e-paper bus stop signage in an easy to browse format. If you have a question that has not been answered here or elsewhere on the site, please get in contact, we would love to hear from you.
We recently launched our very own advanced e-paper driver (EPD) board, developed entirely in-house by Papercast engineers (read the news article here). The all new Papercast quad-core EPD breaks new ground in power performance and introduces unique features including local content rendering, partial screen refresh, built-in memory, improved data communication and on-board intelligent power management. It is 9-times more energy efficient than its first-generation equivalent, used by the majority of outdoor e-paper signage displays available on the market.
The displays have been designed and optimised to be solar powered – we use E-ink technology with power consumption that is extremely low compared to other display types (find out more here). A solar panel charges a small internal battery to enable the displays to be powered around-the-clock. Depending on external factors, the display can run on the battery for at least 2 weeks without any sunshine. The display can also be connected to the mains power supply.
E-paper offers phenomenal sunlight readability, in fact the brighter the day the better the image quality, find out more about this here. In the dark, the display has an ultra-low power LED illumination edge lighting system built into the enclosure.
With solar power and wireless connectivity as standard, the display can be easily installed completely ‘off-the-grid’ within hours. The displays are supplied in our innovative ruggedized IP65-rated enclosure with a secure and flexible mounting system for easy installation to your walls, stops or posts (76-152mm diameter). Once installed, the display is configured and operated via the Papercast cloud-based data management platform.
The displays are supplied in our innovative ruggedized IP65-rated enclosure, made from extruded aluminium with a toughened laminated anti-vandal, anti-scratch front glass, a secure fixing mechanism and integrated accelerometer. The enclosure offers the maximum protection against vandalism and the elements, such as water and dust, and can withstand in the harshest conditions, with an operating range of -20C to +70C.
We currently offer a monochrome version in the 13.3” display size but do offer a colour option for the 32” display size.
