How to connect electro heating yarns in SMART textiles or Composites

As you can imagine, when we work with heating yarns connections, the risk of Hot spots is a major issue, even in SMART textiles. On course the risk is even more critical as the power involved is higher , as in composites molds heating by example! (see the page Hot spots of our web site!)

Welding, crimping or screw-connectors?

In electro heating applications, most of the resistive based alloy yarns are note weldable. therefore we recommend to use connections by crimping
