NISSHA transparent film heater
(2019.09.18 – 09.20)[Nagoya] We exhibited at Smart Factory EXPO.
Transparent heater that completes defrosting immediately after pressing the ignition button
LED of the headlights, the spread of automatic operation system, digitization of the door mirror
now the car achieve a rapid evolution, Dysfunction due to snow is becoming a major issue..
In order to solve this problem, NISSHA is developing a transparent film heater suitable for automotive applications.
Excellent rapid heating capability, capable of heating up to 50° within one minute in an environment of -30°.
Provides excellent defrosting and anti-fog performance for electronic mirrors, cameras, LiDAR and infrared sensors.
Transparent film heater with high transparency and excellent radio wave transmission.
Remove snow frost immediately after starting the engine.
The amount of heat (P) of the heater is inversely proportional to the resistance (R) under a constant voltage power supply.
Therefore, if the conductive material used for the heater has a resistance as low as possible, the heating capacity will be higher.
Transparent conductive film heater
A heater that uses a film of laminated transparent conductive films such as ITO as a heating element.
Advantages: Transparent sheet material, no problem of wiring appearance.
Disadvantages: It takes a long time to heat up because of high resistance.
Although it can handle gently curved surfaces
, cracks will occur in the transparent conductive film when formed into a three-dimensional shape.
Heating wire heater
A heater that uses a metal wire such as copper as a heating wire and patterns it on a film.
Advantages: The temperature rises relatively quickly due to low resistance.
Disadvantage: Generally, the heating wire heater has a thick wire, so the wiring can be seen.
Nissha’s film heater, which uses a unique patterning technology to form a special heating wire pattern, has the following features:
Immediate heating + high transparency
Low resistance and invisible wiring
realizes a heater with rapid heating and high transparency.
radio wave transparent
By controlling the shape of the wiring pattern,
it is possible to secure not only visibility but also radio wave transparency.
Film can be formed into a three-dimensional shape without worrying about cracks
Feature comparison with various transparent heaters (our test data)
|Heating rate||transparency||Radio wave transmission||3D shape support|
|NISSHA film heater||high speed||Good
no discoloration, no visible wiring
|ITO heater||Low speed||Some blackness||Impossible||Impossible
|Metal wire heater||mid-speed||Wiring looks||Possible *1||Possible|
|Metal mesh heater||mid-speed||Good
discoloration, no visible wiring
*1: Radio wave permeability depends on pattern design.
-Defrosting is completed in about 40 seconds, and visibility is completely cleared after 1 minute
-The temperature distribution has little variation and the temperature can be raised evenly
* Data for developed products. It does not guarantee the performance of the actual product.
We will examine the design according to your needs, such as heater shape and heating characteristics.
For development consultation, please contact us from the inquiry form.
-Safe driving support: Windshield, door mirrors, headlights anti- fog
-Improvement of automatic driving technology: infrared sensor, radar, LiDAR parts cover, emblem defrosting
