    Thanks for sharing!
    Do you power this from a 16 amp outlet?
    Then you might profit by using at least AWG 16 wiring, an output fuse/ GFI and perhaps some vents in the box?

    Хорошее приобретение Майкл. Я тоже приобрёл такой регулятор. Но у меня есть один совет. При использовании регулятора более двух киловатт он сильно нагревается и ему нужно охлаждение. По этому сделай короб более доступный для охлаждения..

    heh I should post my phase fired AC circuits. I actually make the electronics for these things. They're simple devices. The only trick is using the right AT leg on the triac for the input current. I think it has something do to with the topography of the device? All I really know is backwards they don't work. Alternating current has more polarity than most realize it does. More than I gave it credit for before messing with it. Autotransformers don't work hooked up backwards either. That's where I first discovered the phenomena for myself. Live and neutral are different beasts. But here's a schematic for the simplest dimmer http://i.imgur.com/GE3ZXqP.png and you tie the neutrals and run the live through the circuit. Here's what that looks like physically https://i.imgur.com/M7WENhG.jpg Not much to it.

    There's so crazy, i just made this exact same thing with the same piece last night! No joke. It's so handy, this is like the 4th one I've made because everyone that sees it wants one!
