Hi to everyone here. Since the day i chanced upon touch dimmers, i have tried to come up with projects of my own but have some queries.
One of my project is to recycle an everyday used aluminum drink can to a lamp using touch dimmers whereby the touch sensor is connected to the body of the drink can making it fully touch sensitive.
But the problem is, i am running the electrical cables internally in the drink cans. So in order to be electrically safe, am i required to also ground the drink can since its metallic.
And that leads me to another question, since if its required to be grounded, the grounding connections will be also connected to the touch plate of the touch dimmer. Will the groundings be affecting the touch sensor in any way?
In a great headache over this. Hopefully i can get some kind advice from the professionals here
