Why dont my posts stay, so I follow this website for the dimmer,scr-based switching circuitry to vary the power,http://www.dansworkshop.com/2008/03/homebuilt-arc-...I hope this isnt gunna cost more then $100 cuz I coulda just bought a welder.
Where does one buy a Solid State Dimmer for Inductive Loads??????????
Would this work?http://www.avdweb.nl/arduino/hardware-interfacing/...Arduino spot welder controller / solid state relay I bought it, and the parts and its all soldered. I found some different transformers. Ones out of a 1100W output unit, I will try to find something similar to double it up.
Ideally you want them to be both the same, but maybe you could use different ones, but maybe they cant be too far different in terms of winding turns guage, length etc. I dont really know though.
Its either full on, or completely off. You'd melt the metal!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"A solid-state dimmer that's rated for inductive loads does the same thing and costs a lot less."Where does one buy one of these? I have seen other web-pages where they use a regular wall dimmer switch, but lights/ceiling fans use 1A. Im sure using 2 Transformers you need a dimmer rated for much higher.
