You want to only switch on once at the zero crossing to minimise in rush.
Thyristors handle hundreds or thousands of amps relatively cheaply.

Anyway, I don’t see what this has to do with tek scopes any more (or in the
beginning!).
And yet, here you are posting again. Why don't you stop responding and reading, if it's irrelevant to you?
I did, after all, use a 564 and a 7403 to make the measurements :)
Some of us are actually interested in the applications of Tek scopes too. When you're a moderator you can tell me what I can post or not.
Your presumption as to what I do or do not understand about dimmers and zero-crossing is also supercilious.
