I saw this relay tonight while going through pics of one of my projects. Kind of a 'different' contact configuration. It's sort of a DPDT, but one of the outputs is connected to either pole. What is this configuration officially called? Thanks.
ADD: I looked at the schematic for its usage in the car. Terminal #5 is not used. Terminals #3 and #4 are N.C., and terminals #1 and #6 are N.O. When the relay changes states, the pairs change states. One pole 'breaks', and the other pole 'makes'.
