High Brightness EL Wire – Green


High Brightness EL Wire – Green




EL Wire, also known as Electroluminescent wire is a stiff wire core coated with phosphor and then covered with a protective PVC sheath. When an AC signal is applied to it, it glows an aqua (blue green) color. You can make it look different colors by changing the coating, for example this is green. It looks a little like thin neon. Very bendable, it keeps its shape and you can curl it around your finger. Its an easy way to add some glow to a project, not as bright as LEDs but uses a lot less power!

To use, the wire must be connected to an inverter that provides an AC supply of approximately 100V at 2000 Hz. An inverter is not included! This wire is 250 cm long which is the maximum that can be driven by our handy 2xAA portable pocket inverter. The full length draws 200mA from the 2xAA batteries (so 2000mAh batteries will last ~10 hours if on 'constant' mode)

This is a pre-cut, pre-soldered, 250 cm long piece of EL in Green. You can plug this right into an inverter and get glowing in seconds, and if you want to do something a little more complex, cut and re-solder it as desired.
