By now most people know how great EL lamps can be, and how they can be utilised in almost any design.
But what we don’t talk about often is the inverters used to power them.
Well there are two different types, SMD chip style inverters are great for small compact designs where size really does matter. The second type are transformer based where there is more room in the design and a simple solution is required.
The transformer based inverters are usually the most powerful type and can either be integrated into existing PCB design, or even plug and play where they simply get plugged into the el lamp and nothing more than a simple 9-12v DC power supply is needed.
Think you need a large Inverter as your interface panel is quite large?
Think again the method we use to print our EL lamps is the same way the best long lasting ones get printed for Aerospace and Automotive applications.
How we do this is we only selectively print the area directly behind the area to be illuminated. This means whilst your keypad could be 100cm2 you only have 10cm2 need to be powered which is not anywhere near as much as you would initially think.
It has never been easier to include any of these options with the great technology available in any design where back-lighting is required.
