Component to make a pulse switch into a toggle switch>?
    #3466775 - 12/08/04 09:02 PM (13 years, 7 days ago)

I went to my reapair tech store today and they have a crap load of pulse switches....meaning momentary activation, the switch pops up back at ya and is only passing current while you hold it down.  They also have a bunch of toggle switches or slide switches.  My problem is that for my apparatus, even the smallest toggle switches made are way way to big for my project.  The pulse switches are very small with a button the size of a pin base.  Is there a component that can be placed inbetween the pulse switch legs and the circuit I am activating which will make this pulse switch play the same role as a toggle switch?  Like I press it and it turns on, then press it again and it turns off?  I know it is possible..... a TV runs on pulse switches but you dont have to hold the "POWER" button for the TV to remain on, right?  PLZ someone help. :confused: :smile: :tongue:

you can do it using a simple circuit... Look up flip flops...
I'd tell you better, but I'm about to fall asleep in my chair.

Thanks for the reply..atleast that gives me somewhere to start. I looked it up and found the component but couldt find a pic or how to use them. (basically just a product # at an electronics webste) Can I just put it inbetween the circuit like a resistor? or is it more complicated?
