Textile light applications are applied to increase operational safety and vision as well as to add unique features to fabrics for fashion industries and interior design.
Our goal is to improve safety while keeping user comfort at a maximum. Light output can increase operational safety in dangerous as well as extreme situations. In traffic scenarios, white light increases visibility (1) and red light (2) indicates danger or the necessity to react. Triumph Motorcycle Ltd. introduced the Light Jacket powered with our LED system iLight L20 in the market, followed by other companies.
Our L20 system with white LEDs for the front part and red LEDs for the back of the jacket enable hands free light for reading a stock list as well as provide additional safety for working in unlighted areas.
The video shows a standard demonstrator of our light application. It can be customized depending on the application. During our 12 years of experience in the smart textile industry the field of application as well as the specific use case must be considered first. Depending on the use cases we decide together with our customers which integration concept fits best.
We use washable textile cables to connect sensors and actuators in the garment. The litz wires are insulated to prevent from leakages and shortcuts when getting wet. Polyester yarns encompassing the wires provide high reliability and robustness.
In fashion, textile integrated light is used to emphasize and create new designs. We support textile designers to enhance their products with undercover technology. To solve challenges of integration as well as realizing customer specific requirements are always in the focus of our work.
