This light dimmer control has active timing capacitor reset or AC line zero-crossing synchronization. The 13 additional components are garden variety and cost less than $2. Performance at the low end is exceptionally smooth and snap-free better even than the TRIAC Dimmer Avoids Snap-ON version that uses a passive reset. We are all familiar with

the snap-on phenomenon of inexpensive TRIAC dimmers that are often used to control incandescent lamps turn the pot until the light comes (snaps) on and then reduce the setting to make it dimmer but don`t turn it too low because the light extinguishes and then the process must be repeated. However, . Hi guys, just a short article about a light dimmer switch that I opened a few days ago. I wanted a way to adjust the speed of a 220V fan and a friend of mine told me that I can use a regular and cheap light bulb dimmer for this. I told him it might not work but he was so sure about it so I had to test it and of course it. This Arduino lights dimmer project is based on Doug Hitchcock`s comment: I need to have a lamp dimmer that can cascade  from one lamp to the next (up to 4 lamps). Basically, when you close a switch, the first lamp begins to light from dim to 100%. Once lamp #1 reaches 100%, then that triggers dimmer circuit #2. This light dimmer is used to dim the intensity of 12V light bulbs using the well-known 555 timer that is configured as an astable multivibrator. The pulses from pin 3 are used to control the VMOS transistor BUZ20, BUZ72 or 10N10. The maximum dissipated power must not exceed 40 watts. You may use the transistor without a. This SCR phase control works much like the common TRIAC dimmer, but has numerous advantages including increased current capability, robustness and absence of minimum voltage snap-on. ...
