Electrical Symbols — Inductors

Electrical Symbols — Inductors

An inductor, also called a coil or reactor, is a passive two-terminal electrical component which resists changes in electric current passing through it. It consists of a conductor such as a wire, usually wound into a coil. Energy is stored in a magnetic field in the coil as long as current flows. When the current flowing through an inductor changes, the time-varying magnetic field induces a voltage in the conductor, according to Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw PRO make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram. Read more

Electrical Symbols — Transformers and Windings

A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction produces an electromotive force within a conductor which is exposed to time varying magnetic fields. Transformers are used to increase or decrease the alternating voltages in electric power applications. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw PRO make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram. Read more

Draw Fishbone Diagram on MAC Software

The problem solving and decision-making processes are closely linked and crucial for the business and life. There are many tools and techniques for facilitating and improvement these processes, and also enhancement the quality of accepted decisions. One of them is Fisbone Diagram or Cause and Effect diagram. For its construction, you need first define the problem which you need to solve (existing or potential), write it into rectangular and draw to it a horizontal line - a “fish spine”. Then define general types of possible causes like Persons, Materials, Methods, Machinery, Measurements or Environment, and attach them to “spine”. Start brainstorming the possible reasons of failure and connect them to the branches. Professional diagramming ConceptDraw PRO MAC OSX software offers the Fishbone Diagrams solution which contains templates, samples, and ready Fishbone design objects. Use of them lets effectively identify the possible causes for an effect, realize successfully cause and effect analysis, and instantly draw Fishbone diagram on Mac software. Read more

Create Flow Chart on Mac

A Flowchart is a commonly used type of chart that describes an algorithm, process or workflow. It applies the boxes of various kinds to represent the steps and connects them with arrows showing their order. The Flowcharts help to understand the processes, visualize the process steps, and effectively find the flaws and bottlenecks. They are widely used in various fields for analyzing, documenting, designing, and managing simple and complex processes and programs, for representing process operations and problems' solution models. There are many types of Flowcharts, such as Cross-Functional Flowcharts, Data Flow Diagrams, Swimlane Flowcharts, Workflow Diagrams, Business Process Diagrams, Process Flowcharts, etc. ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful diagram software used to create Flow chart on Mac and Windows without efforts. The Flowcharts solution from Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and ConceptDraw Rapid Draw functionality are greatly effective tools for designing various types of Flowcharts for business processes.

Entity Relationship Diagram Software for Mac

Great part of modern approaches to the database design are based on the use of different versions of ER-models. The important feature of entity-relationship model is that it can be visually represented as a graphical diagram. ER-models and Entity Relationship Diagrams are so popular due to the simplicity and the presentation clarity. The conceptual basis led to their widespread use in CASE-systems, which support automatic design of relational databases. The typical concepts for ER-models are entity, relation and attribute. Relation is a graphically represented association between two entities, that establishes certain rules and all instances of the linked entity types are subject to these rules. In common ER-model this association is always binary. For representing entity-relationship elements, there are used Crow’s foot and Chen notations. ConceptDraw PRO is a famous Entity Relationship Diagram software for Mac OSX which gives the ability to describe visually the databases with Chen’s and Crow’s Foot notation icons from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution.

Mechanical Drawing Symbols

Mechanical Drawings are the special type of technical diagrams that visualize the structure of complex systems and illustrate the information about ventilation, heating, air conditioning, i.e. HVAC systems. These drawings are created on the base of floor plans and reflected ceiling plans, and then become an obligatory part of construction project which is needed directly for construction a building and for receiving a permit on it. Mechanical drawings and diagrams help effectively represent construction, technical and engineering solutions, and also schematics of different mechanical equipment. ConceptDraw PRO vector drawing software enhanced with Mechanical Engineering solution from Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides wide set of effective drawing tools, predesigned mechanical drawing symbols, templates, samples and examples. Use of standardized and recognized mechanical vector symbols helps you design understandable mechanical drawings, diagrams and mechanical engineering schematics. Read more
