E Ink Holdings, “E Ink” (8069.TW), the leading innovator of electronic ink technology, today announced its agreement with DATA MODUL, one of the world’s leaders in display, touch, embedded, monitor and panel PC solutions, for DATA MODUL to become a reseller, focusing on the US and European markets in the industrial, IoT, medical, and retail industries.

DATA MODUL will offer many of E Ink’s different product lines, including black and white, tri-color and full-color displays in a large range of sizes, inclusive of 1.1 to 42 inches. Due to E Ink’s unique, bi-stable technology, all of the displays are extremely power efficient, enabling applications where power may not be readily available, or where battery sizes must be extremely small. For small shelf labels, single-cell battery can power a display for years; an outdoor information display can be fully solar-powered rather than wired to the grid. As a reflective display, E Ink digital paper technology is also high contrast, making it easily readable in a wide variety of conditions: low, ambient light, bright sunlight, and even from extreme viewing angles.

“E Ink is excited to work with DATA MODUL, and to have our products offered in their portfolio,” said Tim O’Malley, AVP of E Ink’s US Regional Business Unit. “As the world becomes more connected, with more smart devices in home, retail and public spaces, it is important to have an easy-to-read display that can run off batteries for weeks, months, or even years. We are looking forward to working together with DATA MODUL to bring product designers new options.”

Displays are available through DATA MODUL at data-modul.com.
