I am thinking how to approach a new project of controlling a 400W Electronic Ballast:
I would like to switch on/off the ballast whenever Arduino says so :D
I don´t really know if the ballast specifications are necessary in but I provide them:
Voltage: 230V 50/60Hz Current: 1.90A Input power: 440W Output power: 420W Power factor: >0.99 Voltage range: 175~275V
What would I need to achieve this?
I´ve been reading about Solid State , Electronic and hybrid relays but I´m not really sure if they are needed ... to make a simple switch!
Thanks in advance!
