The slide dimmer functions just like a light dimmer you might find at home, or a volume fader in a recording studio. You control the slide dimmer Bit by moving its lever from one end of the Bit to the other. Follow it with an LED for some adjustable mood lighting.
Slide this dimmer back and forth to control your circuit. When the slider is all the way to the left, it’s sending an off or 0 volt signal. When the slider is all the way to the right, it’s sending a 5 volt signal. As you slide it up, more signal goes to the Bits that follow, brightening lights and speeding up motors. The slider can be positioned to send any signal between 0 and 5 volts.
