We show that this is the case, in that they are dose dependent in muscle and brain (Figure 4) and are sensitive to known TH agonists, for example, TRIAC (Figure 4).
Simplifying TRIAC control applications greatly reduces both CPU demand and BOM cost.
The RACT20-family is equipped with a specially developed TRIAC input, offering a solution for dimming many LED systems.
TRIAC "V" Series Control Port Ball Valves deliver precise, consistent flow control with the simplicity and sealing features of a ball valve.
The LYTSwitch family of LED-driver ICs enables excellent dimming performance when used with leading-edge and trailing-edge TRIAC dimmers, even at low conduction angles, easily complying with NEMA SSL6.
Some CFLs and LEDs designed to work with phase control dimmers are designed to draw extra power, not used to produce light, just to provide the TRIAC "keep-alive" current at low dimming levels.
One of the most important application areas for TRIAC technology is in the control of motors, scaling the speed as required (see Figure 1).
