Title: Load control module

Abstract: A load control module suitable for an electrical equipments driven by an operation of a switch is disclosed. The load control module includes an energy storage unit, a signal transforming unit, a first control unit and a second control unit. The energy storage unit still outputs a reserved voltage for a predetermined time during the switch is turned off. The signal transforming unit and the first and the second control unit are driven by the reserved voltage. With a different switching speed of the switch, the second control unit may operate in coordination with the actions of the signal transforming unit and the first control unit to regulate a level of the control voltage, or maintain the level of the control voltage in a current state. The electrical equipments may perform diversified control functions under control of the load control module operated in coordination with an operation of the switch.
