Heat flux analytics in the textile industry

High-tech fabrics are getting smarter all the time. Specifically developed for their thermal properties, they offer the wearer functionality, comfort and protection for sport, work and a huge range of other activities.

Our new calera technology for measuring core body temperature has been integrated into the Skiin system.


Heat flux sensors provide the textile industry with key parameters on the processing and material properties of fabrics. gSKINgt sensors can determine the thermal resistance (lambda value) of textiles.


gSKINgt sensor technology for measuring heat flux (lambda and/or U-values) of textiles and textile components.

With the gSKIN® DLOG data logger, innogt technology enables simple data analysis via certain devices or PC.
