Title: reseting PDT stomp switches
Post by: ingrowing_whale on February 23, 2006, 02:32:20 PM
Hi all,

I'd like to build a switching system with different loop combinations, and to do soo I have to make sure that when I step on one switch the other ones go off. I could do this with a RS flip flop and a momentary PDT stomp switch, but firstly thats gonna make the circuit pretty complicated, and secondly I don't know if momentary latch PDT switches exist. Is there a way of doing this. Or are there switches with a reset function like this :

Are you familiar with microcontrollers?  A PIC or Amtel chip could easily do what your looking for with a little programming.

well yes, but I'm not equiped for it. I'd prefer to keep it as analog as possible. So if I had the choice in between RS flip flops and a microcontroller I'd take the flip flop. Is there no other way?
