AC Controllers

AC controllers require alternating current (AC) to operate and use triacs that are designed to switch the AC supply. These cannot be used to control anything else other than an AC supply.

AC Controllers are used for things like mains voltage rope lights and strings.

This article involves working with 240Vac electronics
All 240Vac wiring must be carried out by a suitably qualified person.
