CONDUCTIVE THREAD (6M APPROX). This conductive thread is available in a 6M bobbin.
This Maderia conductive thread is ideal for introducing electronics into textile projects. The thread looks and behaves like conventional sewing thread with the added bonus of being highly conductive. It is perfect for creating wearable electronics and e-textiles.
This high conductive thread is suitable to be used as either a top thread or under thread in your sewing machine. It is vital that there’re are no breaks in the conductive thread. Make sure the stitching does not make contact with any other stage in the circuit. Your stitching should be done in parallel ensuring all positive terminals are connected to positive and negative terminals.
If the thread breaks or it is loosely stitched the area could lead to contact failure. Strictly adhere to the wiring guidelines to ensure a successful circuit. Test the stitched circuit prior to completing the finished project.
Resistance ratings are used to calculate voltage drop over a certain distance. In basic terms this means a higher resistance means a dimmer LED built. This is especially apparent when multiple LED’s are used over a long distance.
The resistance rating for Maderia HC thread are as follows
HC12 – Resistance:<100W/m
Maximum number of LED’s per battery 5.
