Devices with EMR-Technology

For many devices, there are both stylus-enabled and non-stylus-enabled versions of the same model - if your device did not come with a stylus from the manufacturer, it is
best to check again with the manufacturer's customer service whether your device is compatible with EMR technology.
The design of this digital input pen for tablets, smartphones and notebooks is based on the LAMY AL-star rollerball pen. Endowed with Wacom’s patented EMR technology, the LAMY AL-star black EMR doesn’t need a cord or battery to function, and never needs to be charged. There is no difference from traditional writing instruments in terms of haptics, ergonomics and usage, so no retraining is necessary.

Nibs for every surface

The nib of a digital pen is the crucial element for best simulating the writing feel of a traditional writing instrument on paper. Lamy offers an assortment of nibs made of various materials since there are a number of different types of screen surfaces currently competing on the market.

Smooth surfaces

The PC/EL nib with round contour was fitted in the first generation of the LAMY AL-star black EMR. It has been replaced by the PC/EL tip with pointier contour as standard, but is still available as a spare part.

Smooth surfaces

Smooth surfaces The PC/EL nib is a pointier nib and is ideally suited for smooth (glossy) surfaces. Nib radius: 0.35 mm

Matt surfaces

Writing on matt surfaces creates a similar feel to writing on paper. The POM nib is a rounded nib and is ideally suited for these surfaces. Nib radius: 0.7 mm

When protective films are used, a choice must be made between PC/EL and POM, depending on the glide properties of the film surface. The right choice can only be found by trying out the tips. The rule here is that tips made of PC/EL are suitable for hard and smooth (glass-like) surfaces and tips made of POM are suitable for hard and matt (paper-like) surfaces.
