I really want to be able to PWM my 220v ac lights. I know I can't do this with the traditional relays, they are not fast enough. I was just thinking if it can be done with solid-state-relays?Many thanks
I see. Thank you. I was just thinking, can I use MOSFETs to PWM it? Or can I convert it to DC then MOSFET it? Thanks.
SCR's & Triacs behave differently
The term Solid State Relay covers several semi-conductor devices that are used to switch a load electronically, thus a Triac, SCR, Thyristor, etc. even MOSFETS can be described as SSR.
but I would think that hitting it with a 590Hz PWM would be a bit hit and miss without tying it to the mains frequency, but then that depends whether it has additional circuitry to manage this
I would imagine that since arduinohabib is on a microprocessor forum, and hasn't opted for a light dimmer from his local electrical factors, he is looking to learn how to do it himself.
