  1. Hot plate maxes out at 1000W, selected regulating triac is nte56004.
    200V, 15A.
    I'll try taking an off-the-shelf dimmer and swap in the new triac.
    Should work right?

    I assume the reason you want to swap the new triac into the OTS
    (off the shelf) dimmer is to get a higher wattage than the OTS
    dimmer's rating. Heat sink size might be a consideration - I'm
    guessing it won't be big enough.
