In order to improve the connection between textiles and interface, the need exists for an interconnect medium. Nicomatic Crimpflex Connectors have a proven track record of providing both a reliable electrical interconnect and a secure mechanical solution.
Developed and patented by Nicomatic, the Crimpflex connection system complies with the most rigorous electrical and mechanical requirements. The crimping of the contacts is obtained by piercing the conductor at 6 points. This ensures excellent mechanical retention at 2 points and electrical contact by 4 points with the lowest possible contact resistance. Working in conjunction with conductive materials woven into fabric shows Crimpflex providing a high reliability.
Fabric-based sensors can be used for measuring human heart rate and human skin surface parameters by contact with a person's skin. Other usages include integrating heating elements or simply providing audio signal paths for MP3 players or cellular telephones in outerwear.
