LumeoLoopTM Conductive is a specially made attachment interface connecting battery and hardware with smart fabric by adding conductive modules to LumeoLoopsTM attachment technology.
It bridges the gap to easily use smart fabric with quick attachment and removal from the fabric making it easy to wash, fold and store when not used.
LumeoLoopConductive consists of a modular interface for 1 to 8+ electrical signals. The assembled system are mechanically controlled by a lever to easily attach or detach the device on the fabric.
Each module has a plastic cover that surrounds a metal thread. The metal thread goes in between the conductive fibers of the fabric and then back into itself as a temporary seam. Each module gives one individual electrical signal.
The technology works on conductive embroidery, woven circuits, knitted electrodes, printed circuits, and more. For advanced application, it’s possible to control the penetration depth of the metal thread to reach the desired layer.
Several connectors are available in the smart textiles industry, but they all face difficulties in scaling and commercialising them to the general public.
Ease of use, price, and quick deterioration have hindered scalability and left commercialisation to limited target groups.
LumeoLoop™Conductive eliminates the need for cables, specialised pockets, or a male-female button on the fabric, making it easier to both use and wash the garment.
There has never been a more straightforward solution for e-textile connectors, creating an exceptional opportunity to broaden the industry for everyday usage.

The attachment market hasn't changed since the early 1940s when hook-and-loops were invented. With attachments such as the molle system and the hook-and-loops being reliable, none of the solutions catered for flexibility in wearing gears and belongings. With the up rise of wearable technology and smart textiles, the need for increased space to attach the products became a mounting problem. Having straps as the first choice of attachment limits the user in what wearable to choose with the limited space on the wrists.
LumeoLoopTM bridges the gap between users' need for flexibility, enabling the freedom to freely express themselves through hidden wearables or as accessories wherever they choose to wear them, and businesses' diverse devices to track different data.
Generally no, but it depends on the sensitivity of the fabric and what you are attaching to the fabric. If you attach something very heavy to a sensitive fabric the risk is bigger.
Each module can hold upto 1.4 kg. In a system you can have multiple modules which increases the strength and divides the weight.
Plastic and stainless steel.
It depends on your product and its functionality but our estimate is between one to six months.
Very easy to operate, push it to the fabric and twist the leaver all the way and it’s attached! Tadaa!
It works with embroidery, woven, printed and heat transfer.
No, you don't. That's the beauty in it.
No, it's all cared for. Just attach it and go.
First of all, it depends on the fabric and though we have yet to do laboratory tests, our own tests of attaching and detaching the device 10.000 times have left no indications of giving up the slightest which translates into 13 years of attaching and removing LumeoLoopTM Conductive twice per day.
Yes, the technology is already in mass production and ready for anyone using our technology to scale and commercialize.
