Triac Dimmer Circuit
The circuit of a simple triac light dimmer shown below can be used for dimming incandescent lamps directly from AC mains. The circuit is very easy to construct and uses very few components. The pot is used for controlling the load power or the intensity of the light. The circuit can be also used for controlling ceiling fan speeds.
PWM LED Dimmer/ Brightness Control by 555 Timer With Video Simulation
How to change the brightness of aLED Whether led lights are dimmable Is it possible to adjust the brightness of LEDs LED is basically a diode, when the forward voltage exceeds 0. 7 volt, it starts to glow, and if the forward voltage is less than 0. 7 volt, it will be in the OFF state. What happens if we are providing a high voltage to the LED so

Dimmer Using The Z8 Microcontroller
Introduction The ignition Timing lights in common use range from simple neon to complex units. Neon Timing lights have a drawback that due to their low light output, the user is forced to operate them in subdued lighting. This becomes a safety hazard as one tends to hold the unit close to the Timing mark and to the invisible (or apparently stat

Dimmer Switch - Dimmer Switch Working, Installation, Circuits and Explanation..
The concept behind the light dimmer is to control the voltage to the light lamp or any source. Light dimmers regulate the voltage to the source they are connected to. This regulation of voltage increases or decreases the light intensity. Light dimmers first appeared in the market around 1960s. In the beginning light dimmers used adjustable power...

12V Halogen Dimmer
A 12V 20W halogen lamp (MR16) and a 4. 2Ah SLA battery for my bike light system. The battery has only limited life at this power rating, so I designed this cheap light dimmer to reduce the battery drain and allow for longer rides at night. Based on a simple 555 timer circuit and Mosfet switch Q1, it works by pulse-width modulating the 12V supply...

30mA LED Dimmer
If you`ve ever tried dimming a LED with a simple potentiometer, you know that the approach does not work very well. Just as with ordinary diodes, the voltage-current characteristic of LEDs is far from linear. The result depending on the potentiometer setting the LED brightness will hardly change most of the time as the pot is turned and a sudden...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
