Relay Schematic Answered

I have a 1 volt signal that I need to latch open a 12 volt circuit for about a minute. Does anyone have a schematic?

Use a transistor to boost your signal, and then drive the relay, or the circuit.

Don't know if you will find a relay that will have a coil that can be energized at just 1V. I think 1.5V is the lowest i've seen.

But to answer your question. You can find all sorts of great tutorials about relays with a google search.
