  • I think I’m having this exact issue–I can’t read from the analog pins and have El wire on at the same time, it hangs up the program loop, probably because of the noise on the circuit. When I print the reading back to serial out, it is definitely corrupted.

  • noob question: I want to use the EL Sequencer to light EL wire in a pattern that might have up to 10 meters (3 strands) of EL wire on at the same time. From the test results described above, a single inverter might not be enough to light more than 20 feet at maximum brightness. So my question is, how would I go about increasing the power to the EL wire–do I use more than one inverter? If so, would I also need 2 sequencers? Or is there a way to connect 2 inverters to 1 sequencer (without destroying the sequencer), and, if so, how would I do that? Thanks in advance for any help.

No public wish lists :(
