Language in which you want to receive the document.


This document provides definitions in the field of electronic textiles (e-textiles) and electronic textile systems, as well as the categorization of different types of electronic textiles and electronic textile systems. It briefly describes the current stage of development of these products and their application potential and gives indications on preferential standardization needs.
This document will also provide guidelines to determine general verification of claimed performance, innocuousness, durability of properties, product information and environmental aspects of textile electronics.
This document is not intended for products which are placed inside or are (permanently) attached to the human body. It also does not specifically address the electronics information communication link between the textile with integrated electronics and external data processing. This document therefore also does not focus on the design of software to be implemented in electronic textiles of textile systems.
