Textile sensors and textile antennas

Textile Antennen vom Hersteller Embro

We integrate sensors and antennas into flexible carrier materials

Sensors provide data on pressure, temperature, humidity, geo-localization and other valuable information. Smart technical textiles combine the function of sensors with all the advantages of textile carrier materials.

At Embro, we bring both worlds together: We embroider sensors, antennas as well as finest strands (up to 0.04 mm), coated threads and other sensitive, highly conductive conductors for signal transmission onto textile carrier materials.

You are free to choose the perfect material for your product idea, the size, the shape and the best layout. Already during the development we always keep an eye on the economic production as well as your further processing.

Take advantage of the integration of sensors in textiles for your innovative products:

  • Wide range of textile substrates with textile feel and high wearing comfort when integrated into smart textiles
  • Highly conductive & wash resistant
  • Temperature resistant
  • Very robust, kink-resistant and vibration-resistant
  • Any sizes and layouts can be implemented
  • Processing of finest strands (up to 0.04 mm), coated threads or other sensitive materials that are difficult or impossible to process with conventional manufacturing methods
  • Efficient and cost-effective production

Think sensors & antennas in a new way!

Textile sensors and antennas for your innovative products

Textile Sensoren zur Druckmessung

Textiles for pressure measurement

Monitor pressure changes on surfaces and collect valuable information for optimizing your products. Pressure sensors integrated into textile carrier materials flexibly adapt to the shape and structure of your surface. They provide accurate measurement data, especially in the case of uneven pressure distribution. When used in contact with people, they offer a high level of wearing comfort.

Read in our article how the company Velometrik realizes a pressure analysis for bicycle saddles in bike fitting.

RFID textile identification

Identify and locate textiles – even over long distances:

✓ Identify your workwear after washing
✓ Register and check the condition of your fire protection clothing
✓ Secure your garments from theft with a sensor + alarm when they leave a registered location

Textile UHF RFID antennas or tags are wash-resistant and robust. Their textile base offers high wearing comfort.

Temperature-resistant NFC antennas

Use textile NFC tags or NFC antennas wherever you need the flexibility of textile carrier materials coupled with high temperature resistance.

In the temperature range from 150 to 250 °C, textile sensors score over conventional films. Choose a temperature-resistant textile carrier material to transmit data via NFC over short distances in your innovative application.
