The Natural Digital
Signing Experience



EMR Technology

EMR stands for Electro-magnetic Resonance. This technology is a near-field technology that offers pin-point accurate stylus inputs. EMR uses a combination of sensors, control algorithms and fast data transmissions to produce an on-screen handwriting experience that rivals pen and paper.

EMR represents the most popular technology in professional graphic design tablets and e-signature pads due to the battery-free stylus, which requires no cables, or charging. The sensors and control modules are designed into the monitor itself— rather than the pen. The result is a robust, reliable, accurate and maintenance-free solution with long durability and efficiency.

EMR Use Cases in Tablets
  • Digital Illustration - To create the best art piece, creatives need high accuracy, fast data transmission and an experience similar to the traditional one: EMR satisfies all.
  • Note-Taking - EMR technology implemented in the pad’s touch panel allows writers to rest their palms directly on the writing surface for a natural and familiar experience.

EMR Use Cases in Tablets

  • e-Signature - Customers sign documents precisely, quickly and with a free battery stylus, without the risk of wearing out batteries or twisting cables.
  • Data Capture - Pen pressure (typical value is 2048 pressure levels) and fast data transmission make every written stroke unique for identification and verification purposes. It supports all levels of e-Signature stated by the eIDAS and other regulatory bodies, such as:
    • SES: Simple Electronic Signature.
    • AES: Advanced Electronic Signature.
    • QES: Qualified Electronic Signature.

EMR Advantages

Stylus is battery-free and inexpensive: requires no batteries, cables or charging and can be easily replaced if lost or stolen.

Touch panel and stylus work through different sensors: they can either be combined or excluded. So, the touch will never interfere with the stylus.


ENSIGN11 NFC is a versatile signature pad for the digitization of handwritten signatures and biometric signatures. The EMR technology, implemented in the pad’s display, improves the overall signing, writing and drawing, bringing the user’s experience to another level.
