empowering creative people

EL wire is ridiculously awesome to play with. It's made out of flexible wire with a phosphorus coating, wrapped up in a clear PVC sheath, and when you apply the required AC voltage, it lights up! Pretty cool huh? Think Tron meets DIY electronics.

EL products can come in various shapes and sizes not just wire, we've got EL panels, tape, and even animated wire.

EL Panel

If a single line of light isn't quite cutting it for you, then perhaps this awesome panel will do the job. It's like a bit, beautiful square of lights.

EL Tape

If you're a fan of EL wire, but want something with a bit more 'punch', then try out some EL tape. Great for line lighting, but nice and wide.

Animated EL Wire

This 'flowing' EL wire allows for gorgeous animations to be made using a matching inverter where the light chases itself down the wire.

Inverters

EL products can't just be powered from any old supply, they require a special inverter which creates a 2kHz wave at ~100V from a low voltage, DC supply.
