A method and a system for anticipating potential electric faults in cables, namely high impedance or short-circuit caused by wire and harness aging processes, are described. A set of thin electrodes properly distributed around cables, comprising metallic resistors assembled in series and parallel, is utilized to predict the location of imminent insulation breakdown, namely in branched harnesses. The system provides real-time, automatic, live wiring monitoring of cables. The architecture of the series and parallel resistors is optimized according to the characteristics of the wiring to be monitored; the number of elements is a function of the wire length and the preferred sensor configuration. The electric sensor can be embedded in or wrapped around the cable to be monitored. This invention is suitable for determining the condition of electric circuits of aircraft, vessels, and automobiles, e.g. predicting the location and type of fault.

The present invention consists of compounds and reactive nanoparticles with insect repellent activity on textile substrates and other materials and respective process of preparation and binding hydrolysable silanes through a process in which ethyl 3 (N-n-butyl-N-acetylamine) propionate is added to a hydrolysable silane to form a compound that can be bound chemically to fibres or other functional materials. To the product resulting from this reaction a solution of silicate and triton can be added in a sol-gel process, to form reactive silica nanoparticles containing the ethyl 3 (N-n-butyl-N-acetylamine) propionate that are precipitated by lowering the pH. The active product is therefore preferentially but not exclusively included in silica nanoparticles. These nanoparticles have reactive groups that bind by covalent bonds to cellulosic fibres.
