1010607 Electrical Drawing Symbols
Electrical Drawing Symbols Diagrams of electric circuits show the manner in which electrical devices are connected. Because it would be impossible to make a pictorial drawing of each device shown in a diagram, the device is represented by a symbol. A list of some of the most common electrical symbols used follows. It is noted that the symbol is a sort of simplified picture of the device represented. The reader is encouraged to review IEEE Standard 315/ANSI Y32.2/CSA Z99, Graphic Symbols for Electrical and Electronics Diagrams.
