Description

With the 2.9″ ESPaper module you can display data retrieved over WiFi on an ePaper with little effort. The integrated ESP8266 Wroom-02 module updates the 296×128 B&W ePaper display over the SPI bus. The module also features a charging circuit for LiPo batteries and a JST connector which allows you to run the module for weeks or even months from a battery. How long the module can be run from battery mostly depends on the update frequency and the battery capacity. In tests we could run the module from a 800mAh LiPo battery for several weeks by updating weather information every 20 minutes.

The open sourced Minigrafx is available on Github and provides a driver and examples to get quickly started with programming the module. We also provide a WeatherStation sample app which lets you get started quickly

    I had no trouble getting the kit to work, the directions were excellent. I have purchased each kit Squix has made available, enjoyed each one, and have learned alot. I realize these are development board, but I wish the code had more commenting to help me figure out what is going on.

    Very nice product. Great quality feeling, comes in a nice box and look and feels like a high priced product – way cooler than we are use to with maker products.
    The eDisplay performs really good and is quick at updating.

    Also the code provided is very well done, and I guess there´s a lot of time put into this.
    Reading thru the code is also a good input for ideas for other projects.

    It’s a very nice gadget! I was planning to play around myself, but it ended up on our kitchen table, where everyone in the family takes a look how the outside temperature is and will be…
