Arduino EL dimmer in a theater prop?


Recommended Posts

I am working on a steampunk rifle prop prototype that if it works well will end up being a large commission for a theater costuming company.

I am planning on hooking up a lightweight arduino to possibly play sounds but mainly to allow dimming electroluminescent tape and wire. Driving EL uses a 110vac inverter that takes 3.3vdc. Changing the 3.3 from the arduino is simple, but im trying to figure out how to modify the 110 side to dim it.

I considered using a standard 1A dimmer switch for a light fixture, but having a small component that I could control electrically would be choice.

Anyone have any ideas?
