red by ambient ac fields that are picked up by the human body. CI and D1 form an input network. U2 is a decode counter/divider and drives one of 10 outputs (three are used). The logic outputs drive various resistors in series with the LED in the optocoupler. The optocoupler controls a triac that is in series with a load (lamp, etc.). By reconfiguring the outputs of U2, more than three brightness levels can be obtained, up to 10. An IN914 and resistor will be required for each output.
