I'm looking at this Instructible:

I want to be able to dim a pair of bedside lamps with an Arduino.

The Instructible says to use this TRIAC:
But I can't find that specific one anywhere. I've used relays a few times, but not TRIACS, so I want to make sure that I get the right one.

Is this one: the same?
Or close enough?

The mains voltage is 120VAC (American) so I may be able to get away with something less than 600V.
