Brightness controller for low power lamps

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The circuit given here can be used to control the brightness of low power incandescent lamps. The circuit is based on IC NE555 which is wired as an astable multivibrator with variable duty cycle. The output of IC is connected to the base of transistor Q1. The Q1 drives the lamp. The duty cycle of the multivibrator can be varied by varying the POT R
