Fife, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 11, 2012 -- Proto-PIC is becoming popular with its stock of products like EL wire that works wonder fror electronic enthusiasts.
With its huge variety of EL wire, Proto-PIC is earning a reputation for supplying the best and unique electronic equipment.
Suitable for a huge variety of hobby and professional uses, Proto-PIC is a leading UK stockist of EL Wire and is fast developing a reputation for supplying electronic equipment and materials with a passion and enthusiasm so far unmatched in the UK.
For those not in the know, El Wire is a copper wire which is coated with a phosphor material and (sometimes) a plastic coloured coating. When an AC current at a pre-determined frequency is passed through the wire, it glows at a 360 degree angle.
El Wire comes in a variety of 9 colours and can be used for a huge variety of uses in textiles, health and safety, promotional signage, party and celebration decoration and for general household decoration such as the illumination of steps and external features.
One of the reasons why EL Wire is so popular is because of the ease with which it can be worked. Given that the intensity of the light is dependent upon the frequency of the AC current rather than the voltage which is passed through it; it is welcomed by users with a less than highly technical knowledge of electronics and electrics.
A further benefit for using EL Wire is the length of time that it will last when treated properly. At a standard 60hz frequency, it will last (at the same luminosity) for about 7 years of continuous usage; pretty impressive when the purchase price from Proto-PIC is considerably low as is the electricity the wire requires to power itself.
Given these and the many other benefits, it's little wonder that EL Wire from Proto-PIC is proving to be so popular.
