This is essentially an EL starter set. It is versatile as you can have three different strands of EL Wire to work with.
With this set you get:
6 pieces of 50 cm of high quality (3.2mm) Electroluminescent Wire
A portable, adjustable EL Sequencer that is a really neat little EL Unit.
It is about the same size as a standard EL Driver for 3m of EL Wire (9cm x 3cm x 2.5cm) but it has 3 outputs which sequence in a 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3… pattern
There is a dial on the side which lets you adjust the speed of this pattern from the slowest (0.7sec) right up until the wires are strobing so fast they appear constant.
The mode button also allows the EL Wires to be ‘on’ constantly if you prefer
3 pieces 2 Way Splitters attached to each channel allows six 50cm EL Wires to be lit up by this funky EL Driver
The EL Wires can be any combination of these colours:
Light Blue (Tron Blue), Purple, Deep Blue, Pink, Red, Orange, yellow, Lime Green, Turquoise-Green and White
Because the EL naturally glows blue/green the brightest colour of the wire is the Light Blue, Lime Green and White. The least bright are the Red and Purple as they have to be filtered the most to get the colours right.
To make it easier to design your outfit, below are the dimensions of the inverters and lengths of connecting wires – there are also tips on how to create your costume.
The Driver takes 2 x AA batteries and has a built-in voltage inverter that ‘inverts’ the 3 volts from the batteries up to the 100 volts that is needed to make the EL Wire glow
The Driver dimensions are: 9cm x 3.2cm x 2cm
It has a mode button to select between : Sequencer – Continuous On – Off
It has an 8cm wire coming out of it that leads to the…
The Splitters are 20cm long in total – it’s 10cm of wire which then splits into 2 separate strands which are all 10cm long and lead to the…
There is then another 10cm from the connector until the actual glowing start of EL Wire – then there is 6 x 50cm of gorgeous glowing wire!
It’s not complicated or fiddly but please message us if you need any advice.
For attaching the EL Wire to your clothing
The whole kit is ready to use – just plug and play!
EL wire has loads of uses – It looks amazing when decorating the interior or exterior of cars, can be used inside and outside of the home and can even be threaded into clothes and hats.
The EL Wire comes with a standard connector so simply plugs into any EL Driver and by using ‘Splitters’ you can connect different strands to the same Driver
This wire can be cut into smaller lengths and attached to another Driver.
Our Drivers can run many lengths of EL Wire as long as the total length is under the Driver’s maximum capacity.
Joining tape and tubing for attaching EL Wire is available from our online store.
Cutting the EL Wire into the length you choose is simple… but rejoining it takes care and attention: you will definitely need some wire strippers
It is also recommended placing this joint away from where it is likely to encounter stress (e.g. if it is threaded into clothes that will then be bent and jostled – try to keep this joint out for harms way – e.g. avoid putting it at the elbows or knees)
It is a cliché to say you are only limited by your imagination but with EL Wire it is true!
If you have not seen it before it is like a really long glow-stick that lasts over 5,000 hours
We’re sure you will be amazed – feel free to message us with any questions you may have.
We have some crazy glowing masks & glasses that go well with this kit – take a look!
