    what is the part number or make?

    i would expect connection diagram to be included with the product, if not, place that sold it will be able to help you or direct you to a manufacturer.

    hmmm, this thing is 40 year old. that explains why internet does not find anything about it.
    but since it is single sided pcb with only a handful of components, it would be easy to reverse engineer it.
    my guess is that 555 is used as saw-tooth oscillator and LM324 is used as bunch of comparators (there are 3 trimmers on the left)

    Thanks for the reply;
    just a thought and a ideal,,,dropping the board and using this circuit and parts from this,, could this work..I have no ideal what the choke is,, but the triac is;
    Semitronics Corp.SC265B6
    Triac
    V(DRM) Max.(V)Rep.Pk.Off Volt.=200
    I(T(RMS)) Max.(A)On-State Cur.=40
    I(GT) Max. (A)=50m
    V(GT) Max.(V)=2.5
    I(H) Max.(A) Holding Current=75m
    V(T) Max. (V)=1.4
    @I(T) (A) (Test Condition)=56
    Package=IST-3RT-1/2
    The load would be 4500w...am I just in the wrong ball park here or should I just start from scratch?
    design is shown in pic
