💬 Wireless Touch Switch: Triac Model - (For Livolo crystals)
openhardware.io last edited by openhardware.io
I am designing a new AC circuit for the switch, this new circuit should allow to regulate the brightness of one lamp (the other lamp only allows on and off)
In theory by means of a triac it is possible to regulate the brightness of the AC lamps, however I am not getting it, I have tested with several lamps but the results are not good:
Lamp 1: Ikea LED RYET 1000lm
The box indicates that it does not allow to regulate the brightness.
I can not regulate the brightness ... it was expected.
Lamp 2: Ikea LED LEDARE 600lm
The box indicates that it allows the regulation of brightness
I can not regulate the brightness, at most some flicker.
Lamp 3: LED of unknown brand.
I manage to regulate the brightness but in a rather imperfect way.
Lamp 4: Incandescent lamp
I get to regulate the brightness correctly.
I have tested with these codes (adapting them with the appropriate pins and other modifications):
Does anyone know any other code or similar project that can help me?
I'm using these bulbs, the Ikea works very badly, the Philips brand works much better but it flashes, I'm going to try a new triac and optocoupler to see if that solves it ... the new components will take several weeks to reach me, so there will be no progress until then.
I have published all the documentation in a Github repository. If someone wants to make PCBs, I recommend that you wait a little longer until you receive my PCBs and try them.
