Every driver knows that a high intensity light striking one's eyes can have dangerous consequencies. Cars have a
dimmer switch to lower the light intensity but unfortunately, some auto headlamps are just too bright even if they are dimmed. The dimmer circuit featured here offers a better solution.
When the circuit is activated, it is connected in series to the headlamps through
the dimmer switch S1. The brightness of the lamps is then pulled down to a preset level which is determined by the dimmer circuit. The dim level can be preset through the potentiometer P1.
The electronic headlamp dimmer offers a more flexible control of the headlamps´ brightness and more safety.
