  • 5. How do ESLs and LCD commercial displays work?

    ESLs use wireless communication technologies (such as RF, Wi-Fi, BLE) to connect to a central management system. The management system sends price and information updates to the ESLs, and the displays show the updated information instantly.

    By using ZKONG's self-developed accessories, ESLs are inserted and placed in the display area of the corresponding shelves, forming the ESL Internet of Things accordingly.

    ESLs are typically battery-powered with a long lifespan.

    LCD commercial displays connect borderless to content management systems via video signal interfaces (such as HDMI, DisplayPort) or stoned the contents needed inside, then change the content and frequency of switching according to the actual needs.
