400VA AC light dimmer

Mike (Electronics-Lab) shared his dimmer project:

This is a simple TRIAC AC load dimmer used to control the power of a resistive load such as incandescent lamp or heater element. The max load it can handle is 400VA. Such a circuit is often found on cheap commercial light dimmers and is prooven to work reliable for the rated power.
