Velleman DC Controlled Dimmer
From our extensive range of high quality Velleman Electronics Kits, this kit builds a DC controlled dimmer which features simple brightness adjustment by means of a DC voltage optically isolated from the load being dimmed. A pre-set adjustment can be made for full brightness. This project, when built, can be used for dimming incandescent lamps, mains voltage halogen lighting and low voltage halogen lighting in combination with a conventional transformer. A "Soft start" feature ensures lamp longevity and transformer protection in case of defective light sources. the finished project also features an LED status indication All Velleman projects feature a high quality PCB, building instructions and (unless otherwise stated), all the components required to construct the kit. Basic soldering skills and equpment are needed to complete this kit.
