See lightDimmer for more information about the dimmer project. This version is a rebuild of the previous one which is intended to be more secure and also cheaper if possible. This version has over-current/short-circuit protection.


First prototype Prototype v1. Works, but need to dimension the short-circuit parts.


Prototype 1 Schematic - short circut protection Prototype 1 Schematic, with short-cut protection.

Prototype 1 Schematic Prototype 1 Schematic, without short-cut protection. D2, R2, C2 slows down the fall time of the IGBT to prevent noise and R.F.I.


The firmware is written in Microchip's C18 V 3.16 using MPLAB 8.00.


Latest source code and schematic/PCB-layout can be found in repository
/software/trunk/Embedded/LightDimmer 3.0/ and
/hardware/trunk/schematics/Dimmer-MOSFET/ in SVN.
