What are the applications of a triac?


A triac is a semiconductor-based solid state electronic switch. The main applications are those which require the electronic switching of AC circuits. The switching can go from 100% on to 100% off (or vice versa) or can allow only portions of each AC
Q&A Related to "What are the applications of a triac?"
FETs are used everywhere. Especially for power electronics. DC motor drivers, solenoid drivers are a few examples. TRIACs are more for use in AC systems, such as light dimmers and
TRIACs are four layer semiconductor devices commonly used in speed controls for motors and as a safe way to vary AC power in many devices such as light dimmer switches. They use phase
