El wire inverters
April 5, 2020 - 11:40pm

I am working on an array of El wire inverters for a display. Seven of them to be exact. I seem to be having problems with supplying adequate power to each card. They are connected in parallel and the power supply is rated at 6 volts up to 10 amps. Each inverter pulls about 350 ma. What happens is that invariably one of the lights will not work. A) what do you think might be wrong? B) how do I fix it?

Wire lengths can be an issue... Also check the connection is properly made or not.

EL wire inverters are the magical lifeblood of the EL wire's glowing power. They are simply Plug-in Units that allow your EL wire to glow. They come in a variety of sizes and power, and allow your wire to glow where you need it, when you need it.

The thing you need to check first is to perform a whole system continuity test using some continuity tester or digital multi-meter continuity test mode to verify all the connections made properly or not. After that replace the wires you are currently using with another wire of small sizes, check resistance of first wire, and try to use wire having small value of resistance. Hope by this your issue will get resolved. I suggest you to get more assistance from Sierra Software Ltd. technical support team about products and techniques.

An AC source is essential to power EL wire and it must be a sine wave with zero DC component. A simple EL Wire inverter can drive up to 1-3 meters of classic EL Wire. The AC output voltage of such an inverter should be between 50V-120VRMS, and its frequency is in 60Hz to 2KHz range.

El wire inverter is a  light source based on the technology of Electroluminescent. ... It is not as bright as LEDs or Neon but provides a very nice eye-catching light and illumination. EL Wire requires an inverter to light up. An inverter is a small electric device operated by DC voltage.
