I'm looking for a relay that is normally closed and will momentarily open when the button on the remote is pressed.  Could also be open as long as button is pressed, closes when button is released.  Use is to break a circuit for reset.

I've looked at eBay and they have lots of relays that are normally open, momentary closed as button is pressed but not the other way around.  At least their literature does not say that.

Prefer 14 VAC power source, but I will use separate power source if required (12 VDC).  Relay needs to handle only a small amount of amps (1-2 amps), larger is okay.

Ideally I need separate control of six of these relays.  A six button remote would be great.

I'm hoping someone here has seen/used this type before and can direct me to where to find them.

Thanks.

Are you running with a legacy remote.  If so, then you need an ASC2. It has 8 reed switches that are addressable from the legacy remote.  Each switch can be momentary or push once for on push again for off.

Looked at these, and again the operating mode is normally open, push to close.  It can be set for latched or momentary, but not the way I need (normally closed, push to open).

If you simply wire to the switched circuit to the normally closed and common contacts, you get the operating mode you are looking for.  If you wire the the normally open and common contacts you get the opposite behavior.
