h1. AC Control

# TRIACs: Low cost, high current handling capability.
# Traditional relay: moving parts, relatively low cost, very high current
# Solid State Relay: Higher cost, no moving parts. Advantage over TRIACs is that SSR can interrupt current at any point in the AC waveform. TRIACs only cut off current at the zero-crossing point.
