Abstract

Data over Conductive Coating It is an object of the present idea not to use conductive coating merely for warming up parts of a vehicle, e.g. water tubes in an aircraft. It is rather the idea to use these conductive coatings for transferring data and / or power as well. The advantage of the present idea is the multi-utilisation (data, heating, current) of conductive coatings. Today conductive coating is mainly foreseen for heating purposes. The conductive coating layer can easily be applied on a dedicated surface. Therefore, in some cases a difficult wiring incl. bracket installation could be prevented. In future the data transmission function could be integrated into the general painting process. A dedicated top layer will prevent from damages like scratches or other inadvertent breaks.

Data over Conductive Coating

The present idea relates to any technical field where data transmission (e.g. system performance to maintenance computer/to control unit etc.) is concerned.

Today, data are transferred via dedicated or separated electrical wires, via power wires or wireless.

The advantage of the present idea is the multi-utilisation (data, heating, current) of conductive coatings. Today conductive coating is mainly foreseen for heating purposes. The conductive coating layer can easily be applied on a dedicated surface. Therefore, in some cases a difficult wiring incl. bracket installation could be prevented. In future the data transmission function could be integrated into the general painting process. A dedicated top layer will prevent from damages like scratches or other inadvertent breaks.

It is an object of the present idea not to use conductive coating merely for warming up parts of a vehicle, e.g. water tubes in an aircraft. It is rather the idea to use these conductive coatings for transferring data and / or power as well.

Printed electronics differs from regular conductors in the way they are made and used:

Some applications are already well known, e.g. printed circuit boards, printed RFIDs, printed Antenna etc. are leveraging on the concept of printing/coating a conductor to use it for specific function.

The difference between a printed circuit and the application of a presently suggested conductive coating lies in the fact that for a printe...
