First Post: Looking for an electric lever.

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1
    Does anyone know of anything that flips a little lever when you send a current through it, then flips it back when you stop sending current?

    Something like this:

    _____
    No current: _/

    _
    Current: \_____

    _____
    No current: _/

    _
    Current: \_____

    Basically everytime you send a current to this little gadget it flips a lever, then when you stop sending current it flips back.
    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. This is for a school project and it really means a lot to my workgroup.

    Thanks,
    John

    EDIT: sorry about the failed ascii art. It's supposed to give the idea of a lever flipping when current passes into the gadget and flipping back when current stopped.
