I was looking for a dimmer to control an LED strip with following characteristics:
- 5 meters long
- 14,4W (max) per meter, so 72W in total
I found a dimmer on ebay that says it can handle 144W, which looks like this:
I'm having a hard time believing something so small can handle that much power.
My question is: can it?
Follow-up: if so, how? Is this a custom chip? I've also read something about those things using Silicon-Controlled-Switches or Silicon-Controller-Rectifiers, something I know very little about, obviously.
