PE-152 NFC

1.5 inch E-paper display with NFC and LED


What diversifies the PE-152 from our traditional ESL solution, is the added value of active NFC, LED indicators, and sound feedback. This enables you to use customer loyalty cards, payment, and even pick-to-display solutions. The LED can be used as an indicator for a certain action, to attract attention or to find a product in a warehouse. When you develop a custom-made application, you can add even more functionalities to the Opticon PE-range that gives your customer control of their shopping experience, or you can use the application for your own purposes such as updating content on the e-paper.

Opticon has further refined the ergonomics and aesthetics by removing the need for batteries in this solution to create a slimmer fit to make the shelf look neat and the store making an impact on the consumer. The dedicated power rail supplies continuous power, which makes the PE-range a carefree solution by not having to swap batteries in due time. This smart design taps into modern society and the customer’s wishes. The PE-range creates the ‘wow-experience’ we are all looking for.

Another added value is the easy installment. Within a day, depending on the store size, you are set to go. You simply need the dedicated power rail and accompanying connectors, depending on your shelf system. Opticon facilitates various mounting options, without compromising in shelf space. To provide more insight into the installment and all accessories, we refer you to the brochure on PE-range Accessories.

Unmanned store

An animation of our seamless shopping solution with active NFC in our Electronic Shelf Labels enables a new way of shopping for the customer.


Our Active NFC in our powered e-paper labels enables the customer to shop with customer cards, debit & credit cards, and mobile phones (Android & Apple). After the customer chooses their preferred payment method, a virtual shopping basket is created. The customer gathers his/her groceries by tapping the label and grabbing the products. When the customer is done shopping, he/she can check the contents in the accompanying store app and proceed to the check-out. To complete the purchase, the customer just has to tap the NFC card and confirm the transaction.
