The patent application (Publication Number: US20240010486A1) describes a beverage font lens that includes a housing with a customer display panel and an operator display panel visible through separate windows. A microcontroller unit is configured to display information on both panels. The customer display panel has a higher resolution and frame rate than the operator display panel, with the microcontroller supporting high-speed image data for the customer display and low-speed data for the operator display. The housing design includes rounded edges and circular windows transparent to radio frequencies used in RFID systems, WiFi, and Bluetooth.

Furthermore, the beverage font lens can wirelessly transmit data or connect to an RF module for communication. It can be mounted on a beverage font in a dispensing system, receiving information wirelessly from a cloud server or electronic devices. The operator display panel shows real-time information such as remaining beverage volume, type of beverage, cleaning alerts, and dispensed volume. An electronic reader can identify operators based on RFID technology. The patent also covers a beverage font with the integrated lens, providing a comprehensive solution for displaying and managing beverage-related information in a dispensing system.
