Are you going to do a 'review' on it?
Bung it on a dimmer switch and see how accurate the graph is.

ok, so this is the output waveform from a 400watt dimmer supplying a 60 watt load at approx, 75% full. and @darkwood. it's not a sticker. :(:(:(.

still playing with it. not worked it all out yet. obviously, not as accurate as a calibrated scope. can expand or reduce the timebase. more play tomorrow after i've fixed the oven, mown the lawn, sorted the dogs and ducks out etc., etc.

the green is the input waveform as expected, and is passed straight through the dimmer when on non-dimmed. the red section is cut trailing edge as preferred by LEDs. it's so-called because the dimmer electronics cut the trailing edge, as opposed to the leading edge.
