Technical principle of EL wire


Flexible Neon Wire, also called Electroluminescent (EL ) Wire is the new generation product in global lighting and display industry. Wrapped by colorful plastic tube on its surface, it appears similar to common phone wire, emitting light along its entire length but without any heat radiation. It consumes much lower power, just 50-70% of LED lamp, 20-40%,rope lamp and 1-10% neon light.  It open a new era in lighting and display field featured with energy saving, environmental protection and health. Application Field: Indoor and outdoor advertisement, picture and logo, shopwindow, door, furniture, wall, roof, etc. Car, boat and other vehicles decoration: inside and outside decoration, number display. Safety sign and guidance: stair, passage, doorplate, temporary marks. Toy, art and handcraft, sport article, garment, electrical appliance Characteristic: 1.      Homogeneous light along the entire length with wide range of vivid color, great and comfortable to be seen   especially in darkness for both human being and animal, also no influence on growth of plants. It’s clear and safe to be observed in distance at night when it’s been equipped on car door outline. It also can beauty the city night scene when applied on tree, grass etc. 2.      With characteristic of energy saving, environmental protection as well as safety, it has low power consumption, applied to voltage from 3V to 220V, also no heat radiation, can save national electric power sources greatly. As per present suitable application in indoor or outdoor low building , it’s able to save 15% darkness decoration power in cities. And decrease environmental temperature efficiently. It will not cause any environmental pollution whatever usage or be abandoned, especially can avoid serious lighting pollution in big cities. Due to its low working current , it has no harm to human body. 3.      It’s flexible, can be bent , knotted, cut , stretched, spliced etc. but lighting effect will not be influenced . Flexibility of EL wire is similar to common phone wire, folding angle reach more than 15 degree, maximum bending achieve 360 degree, and can be bent or stretched repeatedly . The length of EL wire is cut according to customer’s application but the homogenous lighting effect remain still the same. 4.      It come into continuous lighting length , featured in 360 degree multi color lighting, be made single color or combination of different colors on one single wire, animation effect is achieved by circuit control. It has different shape such as squareness, round, half round, flat etc. Single luminescence core or more luminescence cores is able to be combined to improve the brightness. Diameter arrange from 0.7 to 20mm or even bigger. 5.     To be fixed on decoration surface with transparent adhesive tape, glue, clip, thread nail, or plastic card etc. decoration surface include glass, display window, furniture, window, wall etc. It’s easy to be applied, no need of any professional instruction. Flat EL wire can also to be sewed on cloth, leather etc Technical information: Normal diameter: 0.8, 1.2, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0…..(mm) Color: red, blue, green, yellow, orange, transparent, white, etc. Shape: column form, square, strap, two colors, three colors, etc. The longest wire: 200m Usual Working Condition: AC220, AC110, DC3V, DC12V, etc.(work with its driver) Capacitance: 4.6nF/M Tensile Force: <1 kg Luminescence Index: 30-90Cd/M2 Applicable Temperature:  -40 to 60 Average Life: 1000-5000 hours Proper Working Condition:  120V, 1000Hz Power: 0.2 W/m Preservation time: 1 year, preservation temperature: 10-30 Relative humidity: 50% Standard test condition: AC115V, 400Hz, relative humidity: 50% Ordinary type:  Lighting power: 80cd/ m2,  Power: 0.25W/ m,  life 3000-5000 h High light type:  Lighting power: 140cd/ m2,  Power: 0.4W/ m, life 1000-3000 h Special specification as your order in advance
