About Flexpaper

In order to display accurate and reliable travel information at any time and place, Surtronic has developed a unique product: Flexpaper. Flexpaper displays are powered by efficient solar cells and do not require a connection to the electricity grid. The combination of LCD and E-Paper display technology provides the best possible travel experience under all circumstances.




With Flexpaper Surtronic has developed an innovative, green product, able to operate autonomously on solar power. The single housing solution results in the lowest possible installation cost and highest installation freedom. Flexpaper displays are designed and tested to the highest standards for Ingress Protection and Impact Resistance.


It provides a smart and environmentally friendly solution, powered by fully integrated top and rear solar panels with battery backup and an intelligent power management system. The efficient installation and maintenance process provides the best Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) possible.

The display

The Flexpaper display is designed in such a way that it has sufficient resources available for rendering dynamic passenger information in LCD, and timetables or any other type of information such as advertisement to show on the E-Paper display.


Flexpaper is able to display real-time travel information, by using reliable communication technologies like 2G/3G/4G and a specially designed, ultra low energy consuming processor, controlled by an efficient protocol.

The E-Paper technology supports high resolutions of 1600x1200 pixels. The information on the display remains visible even at high temperatures and is impact resistant. The E-Paper technology also ensures that displayed information on Flexpaper remains visible even after the power supply is lost.


Flexpaper displays have been successfully implemented over thousands of RTPI bus stop displays in various European countries. This provides customers with the combination of proven, reliable technology and innovation.
