Pulse reversing spdt?

  1. Nov 15, 2012 #1
    I'm wondering if there is such thing as a spdt which reverses upon being energized/de-energized? So each time a voltage is disconnected then reconnected the switch flips once and locks in place till the next disconnect/connect.

    I'm interested in this for a low voltage dc circuit.

    Yes, there is such thing. Look under latching relay.
