Laser Wire® 2.5M System
2.5M OpalDrive Laser Wire® System is the best choice for versatility across endless creative projects. Lase Wire® Cable is the thinnest and brightest cabling on the market. With the properties of a thicker gauge of fishing line, it allows for extreme flexibility. The minimum bending radius is 5mm, and it will outlast any EL Wire on the market. Laser Wire™ Cabling doesn’t fade from ultraviolet rays, this means that if anything happens to the OpalDrive, you can just replace it. This allows you to easily switch the color of the Laser Wire® Cable by unscrewing the connector and hooking up a new OpalDrive module in its place. Powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery and a 20mW Laser, Red OpalDrive modules will hold a charge for 24 hours. Unlike when you use EL Wire, Laser Wire® sidesteps the trouble of having to dismantle your project, or ever having to replace the full length of wire. In the long run, it is an investment you won’t be disappointed in. This solution is perfect for creative individuals in the market for retail applications, costuming, consumer products, bold accent lighting and so much more.
Laser Wire® brand cable is the brightest lighted cable, consuming the lowest Watts per foot, the lightest weight, most robust, brilliantly colored and flexible cable in the world. Images can't do this product justice. Pick up a Laser Wire® Kit in your favorite color and prepare to use it on everything.
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 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!
