The EEL (Enhanced Effects Light) combines a cable socket with a mid-power LED. The cable socket has the ability to be mounted into High Density Urethane (HDU) styling and modeling board, a commonly used substrate material for industrial models, props, scenery and signage. The cable socket can also be used in wood or similar material. The EEL’s cable socket fits into a mounting hole from the material’s front side.
The tapered fit of the socket’s body locks it in place, and a front 5/8” diameter flange provides an insertion stop. The EEL cable socket light assembly is optimized for 6 lb. density foam board when an 11mm (7/16”) hole is used; though it can be mounted into higher density materials with the hole size increased slightly to reduce insertion pressure, or with lower density foam board reducing the hole diameter for a tighter grip. A 11mm (for foam) or 12mm (for wood) metric brad point drill bit is recommended for drilling most mounting holes. The hole size needed may vary depending on material density. The EEL may be used in other rigid foam types depending on user skill. In 12mm and oversized holes the EEL socket may also be secured from the rear with hot glue.
In addition to the cable socket, the EEL has an LED light source, the SBL (Silicone Bi-Pin Lamp). The SBL is a mid-power, 1.1 watt nominal, 110 lumen, warm white source that operates on 12 volts DC. The power consumption is low enough that several of the lights can be operated from a small 12 volt battery pack.
