AC Voltage Attenuation?
I am making my second version of the "Tube Lamp." Others have managed to wire in these neat-looking old analog meters on theirs, and I thought that would be something I'd like to try.
I bought a couple 1-10VAC meters from fairradio.com...
The problem is (besides the fact that I am an electronics idiot) that obviously if I try to wire in this particular meter to normal 110 AC, the meter will blow up.
Is there a way to attenuate the voltage coming out of the dimmer to "play nice" with the 1-10 VAC meter?
I suppose I would need to divide the voltage by a factor of 10. How would I step down the voltage to the meter only, while supplying the bulbs with the proper voltage?
Any help would be appreciated!
