what should be the inverter voltage to drive 50 metres of el wire? Answered




The EL wire needs an AC voltage of 120V. The frequency of the AC voltage affects the brightness.

I don't think its as much voltage you need to worry about - that's independent of cable length and is probably more to do with colour than anything, but it WILL depend on current.


Gee, I woke up too late this morning to say the same thing first.
