Introduction: DIY Latching Relay System

Something I sketched in my Electrical Wiring class. Short but sweet.  And very easy,  No electronics needed!!!  Feel free to ask any questions  : D

Wait, you'd need a diode to make my circuit work... Hmmm :|

You only need one relay to make it latching, just connect the NO relay output back to the coil, add a switch in line if you want so you can break the latching. It'll stay on until the power is removed, or you break the feedback.

I suggest you try this circuit. It won't work, unless your supply is twice the voltage rating of your relays.

A better circuit would use a DPST relay, and then you only need one coil.

Yeah you're right, i meant to draw that as a parallel circuit. I was only half-awake when i sketched this. You could also use a DPST relay as stated before. Thanks

Redraw it, and make it useful, instead of useless.
