Digital Privacy-How do we Achieve it?

Digital Privacy-How do we Achieve it?  Undoubtably, today's hackers are becoming more sophisticated.  The news brings stories daily about ransomware, security breaches, and identity theft.  How can we protect ourselves from these personal attacks?  Many of these crimes can be prevented logically.  Protecting electronic devices with updated antivirus programs is mandatory.  Common sense data security measures are important in daily situations.  These include not leaving a computer open when you leave the workspace, and not opening emails and links that...

Metalized Textiles Questions-VTT has the Answers!

Metalized Textiles Questions-VTT has the Answers!  V Technical Textiles, Inc. has the world's largest inventory of Metalized Textiles.  VTT is the marketing and sales arm of our German partner, Shieldex.  VTT prides itself in this strong relationship.  VTT has input into the design of these unique textiles.  Metalized Textiles were originally used in RF Shielding in automobiles.  Their primary use was to stop RF interference with electrical components.  In the last decade, uses for metalized textiles have grown exponentially.  The...
Conductive Metalized Textiles

Conductive Metalized Textiles-not just for Shielding!

Conductive Metalized Textiles-not just for Shielding!  When conductive textiles were first developed, Shielding was their use.  They were used to make sure car radios worked well.  RFI and EMI were blocked, eliminating static hissing!  They are still used to protect critical systems from RFI/EMI.  They are also currently used in many different ways. Conductive Metalized Textiles-not just for Shielding!  The medical sector uses conductive textiles as sensors.  Human vital signs are detected by sensors and sent to recording devices.  The human...
RF/EMI Shielding Curtain

RF/EMI Shielded Curtains-Privacy and Separation!

RF/EMI Shielded Curtains-Privacy and Separation!  In our lives, we use curtains for privacy, separation, and protection.  RFI/EMI Shielded Curtains are used in the same way.  RF Shielded curtains are made of conductive metalized textiles.  These curtains block the passage of RF and EMI waves.  One of the major uses of these curtains is in hospital telemetry areas.  They effectively isolate the beds in a "shielded room".  This assures that the proper information is transferred to the proper recording device.  The...
Non-Woven Metallized Fabrics

Non-woven Metalized Fabrics-what are their uses?

Non-woven Metalized Fabrics-what are their uses?  The concept of a non-woven metalized fabric is hard to grasp.  They are not made by weaving or knitting.  They consist of Nylon 6.6 fibers.  These fibers are NOT converted to yarns.  The fibers are pin bonded together in a three-dimensional matrix.  This process yields a uniform fabric with dimensional stability, and high tear and tensile strength.  The fabric can be plated with Silver, Copper, Nickel, and Tin.  These varied metal platings yield different...
Data Protection Pouch

Electronic Data Protection-Buy or DYI!

Electronic Data Protection-Buy or DYI!  I've talked about Faraday pouches that protect digital data hacks before.  They are security pouches used by government, police, and big business.  These pouches prevent data tampering or theft by wireless access.  Phones, laptops, and PDAs are protected from wireless access while inside the pouch.  These pouches work using the "Faraday Cage Effect" created by metalized textiles.  The metalized textiles block passage of electromagnetic fields through pouch walls.  This same technology is now available to...
Embroidered Sensors

Sensors are very Important. What do they do?

Sensors are very Important.  What do they do?  Sensors are by definition devices that measure a physical property and records, indicates, or otherwise responds to it. Sensors monitor our health- They monitor our vital signs and alert us to problems.  They can be used in hospitals or remotely.  They detect the electrical systems of the human body.  Brain activity, vital signs, and respiration. Sensors/Electrodes are used in Therapy- TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) helps in nerve therapy.  EMS (Electrical Muscle...
Digital Privacy RF Shielded Pouches

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!  RF Shielded pouches have been used to secure data for years.  Police, Diplomatic, and Military agencies use them routinely to securely transport electronic devices.  The pouches prevent RF access to the devices by creating a "Faraday Cage" around the device.  A Faraday Cage is a metal cage that will block an electromagnetic field from entering the boundaries of the cage. These pouches will block entry of WiFi, 5G, and electromagnetic pulses.  Wireless devices utilize electromagnetic...
SCIF stops Eavesdropping

A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping!

A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping! A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping!  What is a SCIF?  A SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) is a system that completely prevents outside surveillance, spying or eavesdropping.  SCIFs allow sensitive information to be viewed and discussed securely.  You may think that this condition exists behind closed doors.  Not so!  Ask any criminal spending time in prison due to legal eavesdropping about it!  Legal and illegal eavesdropping often involve sophisticated microphones that transmit conversations.  These sensitive conversations are transmitted by...
Small RF Shielding Curtains

RF Shielding Curtains Provide Security, Separation, and Privacy!

RF Shielding Curtains Provide Security, Separation, and Privacy!  RF Shielding Curtains provide a reduced ambient environment needed in many different situations.  Their uses include medical facilities, assembly line testing stations, isolation of warehouse RF Sensors, and even architectural shielding!  They also reduce cross talk between adjacent testing stations, maintaining RF security, and data integrity.  These curtains allow in situ aerospace and automotive EMC testing to be accomplished in the low ambient environment required for this type of testing. RF Shielding Curtains...
