Introduction: LED Dimmer Circuit With IRFZ44N MOSFET
Today during this article we are getting to discuss the dc LED dimmer with IRFZ44N MOSFET. We are using very minimal components within the Circuit Diagram. Just an IRFZ44N N-Channel Mosfet and a Potentiometer. The IRFZ44N is an N-Channel Enhancement type MOSFET thereto can Deliver high Output for an easily led dimmer. This Circuit also works with other N-Channel Mosfets also. that's just about it and you'll use the Circuit for LED Dimming. I will be able to thank Utsource for sponsoring.
How does the 12v Strip Dimmer Circuit Works?
- This is an easily led dimmer that has only 2 components. One is an N-Channel Mosfet and a Potentiometer. The Potentiometer is connected with the MOSFET's GATE Pin.
- Now rotate the potentiometer. this may adjust the Gate Voltage. For the Gate Voltage, The Drain to the source voltage will change.
- As a result, the voltage will vary consistent with the Potentiometer Rotation.
- In this way, the led dimmer circuit with a potentiometer will work.

Step 1: Watch Video for Led Bulb Dimmer Circuit:
Watch the YouTube video from the Creative Creator for more detailed instructions. you'll see step by step process for creating the dc dimmer.
At first, you'll need one 250k Potentiometer. This Potentiometer are going to be used for varying the voltage for dc dimmer circuit.
Place the potentiometer during a certain place. and tin the three Points of the Potentiometer for better soldering for LED Dimmer. it'll increase the soldering strength.
Here we are using IRFZ44N MOSFET. The IRFZ44N is an N-Channel Enhancement type MOSFET to that can Deliver high Output for an easy led dimmer circuit. This Circuit also works with other N-Channel Mosfets also. that's just about it and you'll use the Circuit for LED Dimming.
Place the IRFZ44N is an N-Channel Enhancement type MOSFET during a certain place. and tin the three Points of the IRFZ44N for better soldering. it'll increase the soldering strength for DC BULB Dimmer Circuit.
Now connect the Potentiometer and therefore the IRFZ44N with one another like as shown within the picture. The MOSFET's Gate pin are going to be connected with the center pin of the Potentiometer. and connect the drain pin with the corner pin of the Potentiometer.
Here we are employing a single color 12V LED strip for pwm LED strip dimmer.
Connect the LED Strip +ve wire with the Source Pin of the IRFZ44N Mosfet. and therefore the -ve Pin are going to be connected with the Potentiometer first Pin.
This Red and therefore the Gray wire is for +ve and -ve respectively. we've to offer a minimum of 12v for running this board. during this way the Dimmer Circuit works.
Here i'm employing a 12V switched-mode power supply (SMPS) for giving the 12v power to the strip Dimmer Circuit.
Now everything is just about done. If you rotate the potentiometer then you'll see that bulb dimmer circuit function is functioning fine.
All in all, we will say that there's numerous Application of LED Strip Dimmer. you'll make 100W Dimmer circuit, Motor Speed Controller with this board. The components are so cheap and may be found from Utsource and also in local shops. an equivalent sort of security protection is often arranged with Microcontrollers like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PIC ICs, and lots of other controllers. But they aren't cheap. So, this is often an easily led dimmer with minimal components. You can also read another article about Wire Break Alarm Circuit.
