This unit provides a simple way of adding flashing white LEDs to a textiles project using conductive thread. The unit is programmed with a number of flashing patterns, which are selected by a push button on the main board. Pressing this button cycles through the following patterns: all LEDs constantly on, slow flash all on all off, fast flash each in turn and turned off. The device features auto-off, which turns the unit off after 30 minutes to preserve battery life.
This kit is supplied pre-built so requires no soldering. Each kit comprises three small PCBs. The largest of the three PCBs holds an LED plus the control electronics, battery and a push button. On both of the remaining PCBs there is an LED, these are connected to the main board with conductive thread (supplied).
Depending upon flash pattern the battery lasts for approximately two days of constant use.
This kit is also available in a retail version.

would it be possible to connect this to the light sensor coin cell holder so that it only starts to flash when its darker? would it work from just one cell battery?

Hi Emily, Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to use the light sensing coin cell holder to control the flasher holder. You would need to use the Light level detector board along with a programmable board such as the Igloo. https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2754-electro-fashion-light-level-detector.html, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2751-electro-fashion-sewable-picaxe-control-board.html

Can you sew more than 2 LEDs? Would 4 work?
Posted byon Tuesday, 17 June 2014Yes, however the more LEDs you use the dimmer they will get.
What is the flat test switch? - to use on the electro-fashion-flasher-controller-leds-thread.i want to use the Flasher on my boomerang , for night throws. Thank again, Clifton
Posted byon Friday, 16 May 2014The switch can be found here.
Yes that what I mean , Clifton- is it hard to remove the coincell holder? Thank for your help.
Posted byon Friday, 16 May 2014If you have a soldering iron or hot air gun it isn't too difficult. Heat one pad, lift the coincell holder and let the pad cool then do the same to the other side.
