DualDrive Multicolored 8M Laser Wire® System
The 8M DualDrive Laser Wire® Kit allows you to create a beautiful, smooth color transitions, at a length of slightly over 26 feet! This is an ideal product for projects that require a longer length of wire and more seamless blending, or fades between colors. The Dual Ended kit allows you to put an OpalDrive Module at each end. With this, you can create gradients between any 2 different colored modules. Blink or fade modes will let you play more, giving you the freedom and choice in what you want your next project to look like. Laser Wire® Cable is the only product that allows you to pick what color your light is while using a sleek thin cable tube. With EL Wire, you are limited to one solid color, and a thicker diameter of wire to work with than our Laser Wire® Cabling. When you use EL Wire, if you want to switch colors, this means you have to take apart the project and replace the full length of wire with a new color. This isn’t the case with Laser Wire® cable. You can achieve dynamic, engaging, innovative visual effects and you are allowed to change it up! This allows for endless customization whenever you feel like it! You can connect up two different colored Laser Modules for endless color customization.
Dual Drive Laser Wire® Kits let you choose your favorite color combinations as well. With this versatility, you are able to get a violet light output by combining our Red and Blue Opal Drives. Unscrew and remove one Opal Drive from the end and you also have the option to change the appearance of your display to put out solely Red or Blue light, or even beautiful Teal gradients by combining Blue and Green modules, or stunning Yellow/Green gradients when combining Red and Green modules. This is something never seen before, and a highly desirable effect in the lighting world. Laser Wire® technology will leave you in awe each time you turn it on.
The OpalDrive module includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery which stays powered for up to 20 hours on a single charge (blinking/red). With 3 modes, blink, fade and constant on, the OpalDrive Laser Module is an all-in-one solution for event, trade shows, retail applications, costuming, consumer products and much more! Slide switch on the module allows you to toggle between battery and install mode, where it can be plugged in and run for weeks, months or years on end. The OpalDrive laser module is an all-in one laser module that allows you to use in battery mode, or in "installation mode", where it accepts a PWM frequency to operate. If you plan to plug in the OpalDrive to use wall, computer or automotive 5v power, you'll want to buy the optional OpalDrive Installation Cable as well. If you would like to use it with DMX, we also have DMX Inversion Cables available for purchase.
Estimated Battery Runtime For OpalDrives varies depending on the color. Each color draws a different amount of power. On a Full Battery Charge, the time you can expect it to illuminate before needing to be recharged is as follows:
Blue - 5-10 hours
Green - 4-8 hours
Red - 10-20 hours
Due to popular demand, we recently released a new laser module; The Capsule Module. The Capsule Module is a perfect module if you are looking to plug in your Laser Wire® to a 5V source, like wall outlet, laptop, car, or a portable power bank battery. This type of module will run in constant ON mode when it is hooked up to power. It's smaller than our OpalDrives, lightweight, compact and easy to use. This module has more heat sinking than the OpalDrive so we find that if using in Retail or Trade Show Displays, or for long periods of continuous use, the Capsule Module is a great fit. The biggest difference between the OpalDrive and the Capsule Module is that the Capsule module doesn't have an internal battery. Both Laser Modules will be the same color and brightness. Capsule Modules will also work with DMX as well via an inversion cable that can be purchased through our site.
Both choices of Laser Modules are awesome, so choose is the best fit for your application. Simply select the laser module type you wish to use in the drop-down menu before adding the product to your cart!
