Universal infrastructure of data transmission “SMART SHELF”

FUNCTIONALITY
Unified interface between a controller and ESLs

It is a plastic rail with three conductive lines to power up and communicate to the retail automation equipment.
Common rail reduces number of required controllers, batteries and radio modules per store.

  • OPERATING WITH DIFFERENT KINDS OF EQUIPMENT — ESLs, card readers, barcode readers, inquiry buttons, intercom. Each device can be put wherever you need.
  • WHEN ESL BECOME OBSOLETE AND NEED REPLACEMENT, shelf equipment and controllers remain actual. No necessity to re-construct entire store, just replace outdated or non functional devices.

MESH NETWORK

COORDINATION
COHERENCY

All device controllers work as repeaters. Now you do not need to invest in the infrastructure. Controllers distribute data wherever you need in the store, even if they have a complex configuration of radio communication.

INTERNAL NAVIGATION

Each controller can work as a navigation beacon.

EASY SCALABILITY

Just add more devices (or delete unnecessary ones) for scaling the whole system.

ALLOW TO CONNECT DEVICES FROM DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS THAT MEET THE STANDARDS AND PROTOCOLS
