SEFAR PowerSens – sensing with fabrics

The PowerSens fabrics are woven fabrics usually consisting of PET and electrically conductive filaments.

PowerSens fabric properties

Able to sense physical quantities such as conductivity, temperature and elongation

Customer-specific designs

Electrical insulation available

Light weight (< 90 g/m2, filament diameters 40 – 80 µm)

High air permeability (> 8000 l/m2/s, depending on fabric design)

Compatible to injection mold processes


Examples of applications

Measuring the flow rate of a fluid

PowerSens fabric filters a fluid and at the same time can measure the flow rate using the CTA process. This fabric solution enables the measurement of fluid flow through the fabric averaged over the entire pipe cross-section.
