Electrical Symbols, Electrical Diagram Symbols
Drawing electrical circuit diagrams, you will need to represent various electrical and electronic devices (such as batteries, wires, resistors, and transistors) as pictograms called electrical symbols.
Traditionally these symbols may vary from country to country, but today they are standardized internationally to a large extent.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a huge set of sample drawings including business process modeling diagrams,, network diagrams, UML diagrams, orgcharts, DFD, flowcharts, ERD, geographical maps and more.Picture: Examples of Flowcharts, Org Charts and MoreRelated Solution:VSM symbols are the best for a production process designing. The entire Value Stream Mapping method uses a graphical representation of the manufacturing process, factors' pros and cons, that all stakeholders can easily understand. Value Stream Mapping is a graphical technique that provides possibilities to improve analysis of a manufacturing process, at the stage of the transferring information or materials that required to deliver a product or service to the customer.Picture: Value Stream Mapping SymbolsRelated Solution:A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. Resistors may be used to reduce current flow, and, at the same time, may act to lower voltage levels within circuits. In electronic circuits, resistors are used to limit current flow, to adjust signal levels, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines among other uses. Fixed resistors have resistances that only change slightly with temperature, time or operating voltage. Variable resistors can be used to adjust circuit elements (such as a volume control or a lamp dimmer), or as sensing devices for heat, light, humidity, force, or chemical activity. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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.Picture: Electrical Symbols — ResistorsRelated Solution:Drawing an electric circuit plan with all the wiring might seem very complex. If you ever felt afraid to ask how to use electrical and telecom plan software, then it’s time to actually start from altering the templates from the Solution Park. You won’t even notice the moment when you would become an experienced user. This electrical and telecommunication floor plan plan presents electrical and telecommunication devices located in a country house floor plan. Each electrical or telecom device on this plan is indicated with the particular symbol. Using standard Electrical and Telecommunication symbols makes this floor plan clear for anybody who will be involved into construction process. All the electrical and telecom symbols used in the current floor plan are placed to a legend. This electrical and telecom floor plan can be included as a separate piece into a package of building documentation.Picture: How To use Electrical and Telecom Plan SoftwareRelated Solution:Electronic components have two or more electrical terminals (or leads) aside from antennas which may only have one terminal. These leads connect to create an electronic circuit with a particular function (for example an amplifier, radio receiver, or oscillator). Basic electronic components may be packaged discretely, as arrays or networks of like components, or integrated inside of packages such as semiconductor integrated circuits, hybrid integrated circuits, or thick film devices. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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.Picture: Electrical Symbols — Composite AssembliesRelated Solution:A technical drawing of a building is called an architectural drawing. According to a set of conventions, a building drawing includes a number of views, as well as unit measurements, scales, sheet sizes, cross referencing and annotation. Computer progress had a major impact of the methods of architectural drawing, making manual drawing almost obsolete. Digital drawing software, such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM , offers a number of tools for each design element: piping plan, floor plan, etc. Any building should have its plumbing and piping plans for every room, that has a water supply. Plans are applied to indicate arrangement of piping system in the building. This diagram presents a suite of standard piping icons for making building plans that include plumbing and piping layout. This diagram was designed using ConceptDraw solution for Piping and Plumbing planning. Using symbols is valuable for making a valid piping plan. Because any professional will properly interpreted such plan as a piece of technical documentation of a construction project.Picture: Building Drawing. Design Element: Piping PlanRelated Solution:A thermocouple is an electrical device consisting of two different conductors forming electrical junctions at differing temperatures. A thermocouple produces a temperature-dependent voltage as a result of the thermoelectric effect, and this voltage can be interpreted to measure temperature. Thermocouples are a widely used type of temperature sensor. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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.Picture: Electrical Symbols — ThermoRelated Solution:This diagram represents the electrical floor plan. This is a common practice - to draw the electrical plan on the floor plan. The outlets, fixtures and other electrical equipment are depicted on the floor plan with special symbols. This drawing was created using the possibilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as CAD software. Computer-aided design software is intended to replaces manual engineering drafting with an automated process. CAD software is used by engineers, architects, and others to make high-precision technical drawings and illustrations. CAD software allows technical specialists to develop, examine and manage various engineering projects. It is almost impossible nowadays to imagine mechanical engineering without digital technologies. Finding a suitable CAD software for creating mechanic diagram and electrical diagram architectural designs can take a lot of time and effort. However, with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can create any diagram that you want and later convert it to the most popular graphic formats like.vsdx,.png,.pptx etc.Picture: CAD Drawing Software for Making Mechanic Diagram and Electrical Diagram Architectural DesignsRelated Solution:ConceptDrawDIAGRAM 15
