Powering electro luminescence wire (EL wire) Answered
I was planning on doing some work with EL wire, but I didn't want to use a battery powered system. I wanted to be able to plug the whole thing into a wall outlet for power, because I thought that would be nice and convenient and all that, but I had some questions:
1) Would I need to reduce the voltage of the outlet first? It's a standard 120 volt outlet.
2) What components would I need between the outlet and the wire itself to make it work?
3) What length would of wire could I expect to light with this setup? What is the limiting factor?
I'd appreciate it if anyone could help me. I haven't ever tried this before, and haven't really explored EL wire before. Thanks!
