Is there a DC controlled AC switch available for sale?
Hello everybody! I was wondering if there is such thing as a DC controlled AC switch. If that doesnt make sense, i guess im trying to say a switch of some sort that controls an AC current using a DC current. I am trying to control the switch with an arduino output and power the 120V light bulbs with it. The switch should be normally closed and stay on for the duration that the Arduino is supplying supplying the DC current. I read a bit about DC control relays, but not sure about those. Are tehy essentially the same thing, and if yes, should i go regular or solid state?
