    im kind of new to electronics. im looking for a specific kind of relay. it needs to be a dpdt latching relay but the only ones i have heard of are the single coil and double coils ones. the problem with that design is that it wont change its circuit path unless a current of opposite direction is applied. what i need instead is a dpdt latching relay that will change its path every time a current is applied to it in the same direction. so basically if i press a button once than it will change its throw if i press the same button again it will change its throw the other way. and back and forth like that. does anybody know of something like that and where i could find one?
