69-ELW2.3-TB NTE Electronics Electroluminescent Wire, EL SeriesCan type of wire be cut if we need to shorten it? Also is it water proof? Interested in installing into a cnc machine enclosure with flood coolant.
EL Wire can be cut to any length, but take care to make a clean cut that doesn’t short the copper core to the copper wire outside the phosphor coating. The cut end must be resealed with hot glue, epoxy, or a similar waterproof product. The wire itself is waterproof, but the connection at the power supply is not. For a permanent installation, they’ll want the 69-ELD10 power supply.
