  • Publication number: 20060258205
    Abstract: The invention relates to a textile comprising a conductor line system and a method for its production. The conductor line system has an arrangement of a plurality of electric conductor lines. At least one electric component is connected to specific electric conductor lines. In accordance with the invention an adapter element is arranged between the electric component and the conductor line system. On one side the adapter element has at least one connecting portion that is adapted to the arrangement of the electric conductor lines. On the other side the adapter element has at least one connecting portion that is adapted to a connecting arrangement of the electric component.
