SparkFun COM-12933 EL Inverter – 3v (Chasing)
EL Inverters, if you are wanting to do anything with EL lighting you need one, period. This 3V EL Inverter is a special type that is intended to be used with a “chasing” EL wire. Unlike typical EL wires which only require a 2-pin connection, Chasing EL wire types require a 4-pin connection three for the cascading or “chasing” effect and one for common ground. Using this chasing inverter is as simple as it is to opperate its non-chasing cousin. Simply insert two AA batteries for power, plug in your Chasing EL Wire, and press the button to turn it on and select three different lighting effects (Slow Chase, Fast Chase, and Super-Duper Fast Chase).
It is recommended that these inverters only run up to 5M of EL wire, you may not have enough power to support longer lengths. Each inverter is also equipped with a small belt clip making it easier to incorporate into mobile or e-textile projects.
