Make Your Home Electronics Shine

By Ewan Fisher Subscribe to RSS | December 3rd 2011 | Views:

The market for home electronics components is growing fast as more and more people decide to make their own devices. Whether they are keen amateurs wanting to learn more about electronics or whether they are trained engineers working on prototypes of new products that will one day have commercial applications, these creative and driven people are looking for high-quality, reliable electronics components.

Fortunately, there are suppliers offering products online that understand their needs and share their passion. As a result, it is easy to find the best components online, and the variety is truly impressive. Whether you are designing robots or e-textiles, or building your own computers or wireless devices, you can find everything you need.

For those inventors and enthusiasts who want to add a stunning visual element to their new designs, one of the most popular ways is to use EL wire. Electroluminescent wire is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor. The result is that when an alternating current is applied to it, the wire glows in magnificent colours. Many of you will have seen EL wire in decorative applications for toys and clothing, or as a vital component in safety of emergency lighting. But the range of applications for this fantastic material is truly vast.

There are many suppliers of EL wire in the UK, and a quick search online will enable you to find a lot of different products in the market. The sign of a good supplier, however, is that it will not only supply EL wire in different colours, but also the vital components needed to make it work successfully in your final design.

One of these components is the inverter that is needed to send the right current through the wire. A good supplier of el wire UK will also stock products like the EL wire pocket inverter, which is a small and portable device powered by two AA batteries. It can drive up to 8ft of high-brightness EL wire for 10 hours. It also comes with the ability to alternate between steady and blinking operation, and it has a removable clip for portability.

EL wire UK is a fantastic addition to many home electronics creations, but you need the right accessories to make it work to its full effect. Make sure that you choose a supplier that has all these accessories available, and that can support you in choosing and using the right products.

If you find an online supplier that is run by professional engineers who are passionate about home electronics, then this kind of support is easy to come by. Some suppliers even encourage their customers to get in touch with them before buying in order to make sure they get the right kind of product and have all the necessary parts to make it work. Furthermore, they will also be around to help you after you have bought your EL wire and inverter to make sure that you can overcome any problems you might encounter when trying to incorporate them into your new design.

There are some great EL wire suppliers in the UK, and you don’t have to look that hard to find them. With the right equipment, support and advice, EL wire can give you dazzling visual effects for your home electronics.
