I would like to dim a single phase 220V AC motor, digitally, with my arduino of course.
I've read a lot of topics here and on other sites, yet I can't find a satisfying answer. Like, someone say "do this and it will work", then someone else say "no it won't work, do that instead". And then they go about technical stuff that I can't understand because I'm not an electrical engineer... I can't afford to try all offered solutions without knowing what I'm doing, most likely I will burn my motor, or worst..
Can someone please look at the datasheet of my motor (BL-B190A-2E-А01-01), and tell me what would I need to be able to digitally control the speed of it (all I really need is 4 steps: OFF, 1/3, 2/3, FULL). Is there suitable modules available somewhere, like ebay?
