Electronic wire in 150mm lengths which can expand or contract, ideal for smart textiles and model-making projects.

On passing a current through the muscle wire the composition of the wire changes which makes it contract. This movement can be increased by the use of levers etc to produce moving parts within models.

  • Muscle wire (also known as smart wire and nitinol wire) with crimped copper ring terminals
  • Fitted copper ring terminals make model making simple
  • Wires can easily be soldered on to the copper ring terminals
  • Muscle wire can be repeatedly used
  • Movement can also be controlled using a 555 timer circuit with a supply voltage of 4.5V, this allows the correct 3V to operate the muscle wire
  • Movement can also be controlled using PIC chips to activate and de-activate the muscle wire using the correct 3V supply
  • Approximate diameter 0.015mm (0.006in.)
  • Supplied in packs of 5

Q. Hello, Do you do a thicker version of this please? I am sewing into fabric and whilst the effect works - it can't lift the fabric very much! Would love to try another version with more pulling power. Thank you
A. Hi Becky, thank you for your question. No we do not have a thicker version of this one.

Q. Hello, I was wondering if the light stitches muscle wired can be programmed to use with a genie board? Thank you.
A. Hi Maria, thank you for your question. The Genie boards will be powerful enough to activate the wire as they only require 3V.
