About the product


AC dimmer is designed to control the alternating current voltage, it is used to control the LED light, electronic heating element and the AC motor. LoRa AC Dimmer module is based on Atmel's Atmega328P to control the dimmer through the PWM signal the MCU generated. The board also features the LoRa module on board that provides a solution for controlling remotely.
LoRa AC dimmer can easily program with Arduino, which is comfortable for the electronic beginner.

Preparation before using

Note: Safety First.

  • Prepare the USB to Serial tool like CP2104 for Arduino programming.
  • Prepare other LoRa terminal for controlling the AC Dimmer.

Using Demo

Overview: Use the Maduino LoRa Radio board to control the light connected with the AC Dimmer remotely.

  • Use the CP2104 tool to connect the board with the PC.
  • Program the AC dimmer board by Arduino.
1. You can get the demo code from Github.
2. Open the code with Arduino.
3. Select the development board (Arduino Pro Mini) and the port.
4. Install the library (RadioLib.h) for the LoRa module driver.
5. Remember to modify the frequency to your modules at the code.
6. Verify the code and upload it to the board.
  • Program the Maduino LoRa radio board to be the controller.
1. Get the code from here.
2. Open the code with Arduino.
3. Select the development board (Arduino Pro Mini) and the port.
4. Upload the code to the board.
  • Connect the light to the screw terminals of the output, plug the Live line and Null light to the input with cutting off the power. Please note that all operations must be on the power cutting off.
  • Power on the LoRa AC dimmer.
  • Power on the Maduino LoRa radio board with the Micro USB cable connecting the PC. Open the serial monitor of the Arduino IDE, and transmit the data to control the Dimmer.
