Electroluminescent EL Drivers explained:
All Electroluminescent materials needs an EL Driver to make it work, whether for “paramagnetic” paint projects or El Paint projects. For the different projects you need different drivers. What EL Drivers do is convert a DC voltage into a high frequency and AC voltage. In doing so, it excites the particles inside the EL Material and starts to glow. EL Drivers are all tuned for a specific amount of EL material, so be sure to select a driver that is capable of handling the Electroluminescence.
Voltage is the difference in charge between two points. Current is the rate at which charge is flowing. Resistance is a material’s tendency to resist the flow of charge (current).
In direct current (DC), the electric charge (current) only flows in one direction. Electric charge in alternating current (AC), on the other hand, changes direction periodically. The voltage in AC circuits also periodically reverses because the current changes direction.
If you want information about custom inverters for specific electroluminescence projects, please email us. We work with numerous companies which help us with our light up paint projects.
When working with EL Paint, make sure you have a high quality driver which means the difference in your lighting up paint projects. Some are stable and reliably, versus not glowing at all. Some drivers on the market today do not have the capacity of lighting up EL Paint, you can email us anytime when searching for the appropriate EL Paint drivers.
