I'm a noob if it comes to electronic components but I'm trying to achieve the following and I would really appreciate some suggestions:
I have the following requirement:
- When a circuit is closed the first time (via some sort of pulse switch), an LED will receive power.
- After the circuit is closed the first time, it will be open again for a long duration of time.
- When a circuit is closed the second time, LED should not receive any power.
- Loop continues 1-3
Basically I want a pulse of electricity to toggle circuit on every other time. Note that during the off state, the circuit will have no power at all. So any solutions involving 555 timers etc won't work.
I have bee reading about Dual Coil Bistable relays and I was thinking to use it in conjunction with some logic gates to make this happen, but I feel like I'm going a little bit too far with this and maybe this is simpler than I make it.
