12v D.C. Gas Flame Street Light (Flickering Effect) Controller PCB

Our 12v D.C. Gas Flame Street Light (Flickering Effect) Controller PCB is simple to install and has outputs for 5 lamps.

A gas lamp has always required two things, gas and air, to burn and create light. The gas lamp required the air for combustion and therefore the design had to have vents to allow air into the lamp and allow the gas to burn. Because the flame could be easily effected by the environment, any changes in air pressure could cause the flame to become unstable, and thus have a flickering light.

William Murdoch was the first to exploit the flammability of gas for the practical application of lighting. He worked for James Watt at his Soho Foundry steam engine works in Birmingham, England. In the early 1790s, while overseeing the use of his company’s steam engines in tin mining in Cornwall, Murdoch began experimenting with various types of gas, finally settling on coal-gas as the most effective. He first lit his own house in Redruth, Cornwall in 1792.[2] In 1798, he used gas to light the main building of the Soho Foundry and in 1802 lit the outside in a public display of gas lighting, the lights astonishing the local population. One of the employees at the Soho Foundry, Samuel Clegg, saw the potential of this new form of lighting. Clegg left his job to set up his own gas lighting business, the Gas Lighting and Coke Company.
