I am developing one consumer product in which I am going to operate Resistive and Inductive loads. In this project there is also a need of dimming of the loads.
I have completed programming part. But doing study of switching through programming I got confused at what to use for switching.
Relay or Triac?
I have studied that every Automation companies are using Relay for switching of loads. And for dimming purpose they are using Analog Dimming. While Triac can do both Switching and Dimming through phase cutting.
So my confusion is, why everybody is going with Relays not Triacs? What can be the possible points for not using Triacs?
