As the title emplies, I know just enough about this... but was hoping to get some backup before I place some current to this project.
Here's the background for the project:
An AC drive unitis being controlled by a radio remote.
The drive has both fwd and rev functions that have to remain latched to operate. I'm wanting to setup two functions on the transmitter of the remote: one fwd, one for rev. But one function needs to be turned off, when the other one is operating, and visa versa.
I'm thinking a simple, single coil latching relay will accomplish this, but I've never worked with one so here is where I'm in need of some help.
Looking at the wire diagram of this relayshould there be a constant 12vdc current on the coil, and the switches operated with simple open and closed "dry" circuits? (if 9 and 6 are closed, 7 and 4 will close?).
More background, the remote signal can either be momentary or latching.
