Description: Who doesn’t love the soft glow of electroluminescence? This EL panel is a flexible plastic sheet which contains a phosphor layer and lights up with a neon-like glow when the proper voltage is applied. It’s a lot like the ever-popular EL wire except, well, it’s a panel. Panels are particularly well suited for backlighting LCDs as well as illuminated signage.
These can be driven with any of the EL inverters and sequencers that we carry and come in a variety of bright colors (check below for other colors). This particular panel is 10cm square and illuminates blue. It is attached to a 20cm cable which is terminated with a JST PH connector.
Note: These panels can be cut to any shape! Regular scissors work fine to cut this EL panel but after you’ve cut the panel you should seal the exposed edges with some tape or epoxy to avoid shorting the panel or shocking yourself.
Dimensions: 10 x 10 cm
