Default Mini Latching Relay in DIP package

OMRON G6K-2p-Y Latching relay 5VDC, DIP package

Digikey sent me (5) of these parts instead of 1/4w resistors.

Anyways, I downloaded the PDF and it says 80% voltage for set, and 80% voltage to reset the relay. ...I don't understand.

How do you latch/unlatch these relays? They're DPDT type.

Does anyone have an example circuit?

you have to reverse the coil voltage to unlatch the relays. Giving a pulse in one direction switches the relay to the first switch position, giving a pulse in the other direction switches the relay to the second switch position.
You can do this with a discrete or integrated H-bridge.
