Energize Your Retail Experience with Wireless Charging at a Distance for Electronic Shelf Labels

In the fast-paced world of retail, staying ahead of the competition requires innovation and efficiency. Traditional retail pricing involves a laborious process of printing and replacing paper labels. This outdated approach is time-consuming, prone to errors, and lacks agility in adapting to rapidly changing market dynamics. Retailers face significant challenges in maintaining accurate and up-to-date pricing information throughout their stores, leading to customer dissatisfaction, lost revenue, and inefficient operations.

Digital electronic shelf labels (ESL) are modernizing the retail landscape, providing a seamless and hassle-free solution for digitally pricing goods and managing promotions in stores. Wireless ESLs provide an innovative solution to transform your store or retail chain. These sleek digital displays replace traditional paper labels, enabling automated, real-time pricing updates, and dynamic promotional management. With ESLs powered wirelessly over the air and at a distance, retailers can gain unprecedented control over pricing accuracy, efficiency, and customer engagement.

Energous has pioneered the wireless charging revolution by developing active energy harvesting technology capable of sending RF energy over the air at a distance to IoT sensors, ESLs, and tracking devices. Active energy harvesting eliminates the need for manual battery replacement or regular charging of ESL devices. By leveraging Energous’ active energy harvesting technology, ESLs are continuously powered, ensuring uninterrupted functionality and hassle-free maintenance. Retailers can focus on optimizing their operations and delivering an exceptional shopping experience to customers.
