Lighting control
« on: October 22, 2013, 03:42:56 PM »
I need to turm on some halloween lights using an arduino. I'm thinking of a simple triac circuit. If this is just standard 120v, any recomedations on a specific triac?

I recently purchased a few of these to work with an arduino for a project at work. They require 3-30VDC 16mA to turn on, and will switch up to 10Amp 24-280VAC. Also mount to a din rail.

Not a bad price for dinrail mounted SSR's.

If it runs on electricity, i have it :)
