Electrical Symbols — Terminals and Connectors
An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. Electrical connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices.

There are hundreds of types of electrical connectors. Connectors may join two lengths of flexible copper wire or cable, or connect a wire or cable to an electrical terminal.
How to Create an Electrical Diagram Using Terminals and Connectors Library
- Open ConceptDraw DIAGRAM new document page.
- Select libraries from Electrical Engineering section.
There are a few different ways to place an object into your drawing:
- Click on an object and then click on the document, at the place you want the object to be inserted.
- Perform a drag-and-drop from the library to your document.
- Double click on an object’s icon in the library to place an object in the center of your document.
- Select the Smart Connector tool . To connect elements using this tool, drag the connector from one connect dot to another.You can use Layers to place connections on different layers.
- Result: Electrical Diagram.
