ELECTROLUMINESCENT (EL) BACKLIGHTING

GENERAL ELECTROLUMINESCENT (EL) BACKLIGHTING FEATURES

Nelson-Miller implements electroluminescent (EL) backlighting solutions for membrane switches and other various customer applications by printing phosphors between two conductive layers. Phosphors emit light when a DC Voltage is applied to them through one of the transparent conductive layers.

EL backlighting solutions are best suited for low to no-light applications, where the backlight is not always on.  That is due to the properties of phosphors that tend to decay with extended use at high voltages and frequencies.

EL BENEFITS

  • Uniform backlight
  • Thin (.007" typ.)
  • Flexible, and can be put on top of tactile domes
  • Low power (.5 mA per sq. in typ.)

AVAILABLE EL COLORS

  • White
  • Blue
  • Blue-Green
  • Green
