I read the TOS and I think this question is allowed if not please delete it. I'm starting plans for a New Year's Eve Party at my friends house at the end of this year. There will be some special effect, nothing amazing just for our friends. One of these is a confetti cannon I built powered by a shop vac. I want everything to be pre programmed and run off my computer. I have the software a simple board and some dimmers that can also operate as switched. I want the shop vac to be controlled by the dimmer (on off, not fading). The problem is these are DJ dimmers with a max of 5a per channel and the shop vac is 7.3a. I was looking into using a Solid State Relay so a low power is used to turn it on then it draws power from another source. Would an SSR be the best way to approach this or is there another option I could use?
