Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) has introduced E-WEBBINGS® e-textile product base, specifically designed to serve as a customizable base for a wide range of smart textile applications within the Internet of Things (IoT). These smart textiles serve as the foundation layer to which electronic intercommunication technology is integrated directly, and they allow for smaller final product size, lower weight, optimal user comfort and cost savings.
The product made from a variety of fibers and conductive elements that allow electronics and digital parts to be embedded in them. BRM works with customers to design the structural and conductive components that allow for the detection and gathering of data, depending on the specific applications.
BRM engineers work closely with clients throughout each step of the process, selecting each component and factor that goes into an E-WEBBINGS textile, so the conductor, base webbing, power source and sensor work seamlessly together. Conductive fibers or wires can be woven right into the E-WEBBINGS fabric, allowing for transmission of power and information without the need for additional wiring in the final component.
BRM also offers many sensor options, based on where within the product the textile structure is located, and what types of information and data it needs to measure.
