    Relays??? Colapsing and Reversing circuit question?

    Relay, Colapsing circuit question?



    Anyone know how to use relays or anything to create a circuit that when energized,

    It sends current in one direction,
    Then when stopped, it collapses and reverses,
    Then when energized again it sends current the other way?

    I want to make my linear actuator work both ways of a single output of my alarm or some type of remote switch...

    I could buy a DPDT N.O. Momentary switch, but I want it to work offa a remote...

    Any diagrams would be great...

    Linear actuator being polarity sensitive? Pos / Neg one direction, Neg / Pos the other direction? That what you're looking for?

    Kinda tough drawing schematics in ASCII, so if that's what you're looking for I can make a gif file.

    Yep thats exactly what type it is... It has two wires...


    I know there is a way to make it work off of a single output... I've seen it done, but I can't remember how... I know it took a few relays... The guys at work are telling me its not possible, but I won't rest till I find the solution...

    Any help would be great...
