The dimmer Bit lets you control your creations with a simple knob. just like the knob on a water faucet. The more you turn the knob, the more the water flows from the faucet. The dimmer is similar – the more you twist it clockwise, the more signal it lets through. When the dimmer is all the way to the left, it sends an OFF or 0 volt signal. When the dimmer is all the way to the right, it sends an on ON or 5 volt signal. The dimmer can be positioned to send any signal between 0 and 5 volts.
