How to Make a Modern Wooden Clock
Tripods and Supports
Hi samu-ele,The TRIAC based design can only be used for a leading edge dimmer as we can only trigger it to turn ON,while the N-MOSFET design can be configured to work as trailing/leading edge dimmer easily,also trailing edge dimmers have certain benefits over the leading edge ones as highlighted in STEP 2.Further the TRIAC needs an impulse to turn on,while the N-MOSFET switch easily follows the control signal.Many other colleagues have already made the leading edge dimmers,so I have attempted a new design which can work as both trailing/leading edge dimmer. Thanks.
Thank you for the appreciation.
Hi John,AC1 and AC2 are just labels for the 2 nodes (points where the they point to)to reduce the number of wires in the circuit (to make it less cluttered),Thanks.Do let me know if this clears up your question.
Actually I appreciate your questions,as these helped me improve my documentation.It's important to take reviews from peers to get know if what the author thinks is easily propagated to others.Regards.
I have reported this issue to them,might get resolved soon.
Updated the schematics,hope now it helps :)
1.I agree that the eagle schematic looks slightly unclear(I might have to make better diagrams),so here's more detailed explanation..
GU10's look interesting,thanks for your appreciation.
2.According to my tests in general the answer is no,I was getting some flickering for led lamps because fundamentally many of them have a controlling circuitry to maintain constant current through the leds,hence such methods would prove futile,though one could mod the lamp circuitry to make the dimming work.
