Dimmer, imaging system, method for operating dimmer, and operating program for dimmer

This dimmer sets exposures values for generating combined image data obtained by combining a plurality of pieces of image data obtained from a plurality of exposure procedures with different exposure values. This dimmer comprises: a brightness detector that obtains image data or combined image data and detects the brightness of the image; a standard exposure value calculation unit that calculates a standard exposure value on the basis of the detection results of the brightness detector; and an exposure value setting unit that sets an exposure value corresponding to the timing of the exposure procedure on the basis of the standard exposure value calculated by the standard exposure value calculation unit.

Method of brightness control of fluorescent lamp and device for brightness control of fluorescent lamp

The method of brightness control of fluorescent lamp is executed on the basis of the make-time of a dimmer. That make- time of a dimmer is transformed into a digital signal, having higher frequency than power frequency. The current intensity of a fluorescent lamp is controlled on the basis of' digital signal. The measuring of the make-time of a dimmer is executed when additional load is connected. The make-time of a dimmer is transformed taking into account characteristics of brightness - of a fluorescent lamp in the function of current intensity.' The device for brightness control of a -fluorescent lamp is equipped with the circuit for measuring of the make- time of a dimmer. The device is also equipped with the circuit generating digital signal, the resonant circuit controlling current intensity- of a fluorescent lamp on the basis of digital signal and an additional load connecting temporarily for. the moment of measuring of the make-time.

Light regulator of small fluorescent lamp

A dimmer for controlling AC power to a lighting load provides a leading power factor by initiating conduction through an electronic switch at each zero crossing of the line current. The dimmer delivers current to the lighting load in a sequence of pulses where each pulse corresponds to a portion of one AC half wave. A variable resistance that alters a voltage signal delivered to an integrated circuit permits the user to determine the duration of each pulse and thus vary the power delivered to the lighting load. The dimmer is provided with over current protection.

Electronic h.f. dimmer for high voltage and low voltage incandescent lamps

Electronic H.F. dimmers for high voltage and low voltage incandescent lamps have a very high power factor and extraordinarily low mains current harmonic oscillations. Such appliances for operating low voltage halogen incandescent lamps were usually named until now dimming electronic transformers. The advantage of the invention is that it allows high voltage and low voltage incandescent lamps to be operated at the same time with a H.F. dimmer.
