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.

Inductors are widely used in alternating current (AC) electronic equipment, particularly in radio equipment. They are used to block AC while allowing DC to pass; inductors designed for this purpose are called chokes. They are also used in electronic filters to separate signals of different frequencies, and in combination with capacitors to make tuned circuits, used to tune radio and TV receivers.

Piping and Instrumentation Diagram Software →

Plumbing systems are very important for any manufacture, and it's a good practice to have a clear scheme of that system. To create one, you should use a piping and instrumentation diagram software with a possibility to save files in vector format, so you can print them without quality loss. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a great tool for creating diagrams, and you don't need to be very experienced to use it efficiently. This example of Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) depicts a scheme that illustrates the physical sequence and functional communications of piping, instrumentation and plumbing equipment components of a typical food trailer. Seeking to avoid health troubles in a mobile food service , the plumbing demands for food trailers must be considered accurately. This P&ID shows all of piping including a basic set of piping system components along with multiple sinks, extra water heaters and other elements to meet health guidelines.Piping and Instrumentation Diagram Software

Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols →

When we start to speak about databases, we must always mention database structure visualization. One of the most common ways to do it is to create an entity relationship diagram, and to put appropriate symbols on it. It is important either for database projecting and for its' future maintenance. Entity Relationship Diagram describes data elements and their relationships within a database. There are a set of special symbols that depict each element of an entity relationship diagram. Entities - represents some stable components such as supplier, employee, invoice, client, etc. Relation symbols show how the entities interact. Attributes define characteristics of the relationships. Attributes can be one-to-one or many-to-many. Physical symbols is used in the physical models. They represent items such as fields, tables, types and keys. ERD physical symbols are the building material for the database. Notation lines are used to illustrate the relationships. The most common method is Crow’s Feet notation. You can use ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution to represent a database using the Entity-Relationship model.Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols

Electrical Symbols — Semiconductor Diodes →

In electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) resistance to the flow of current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other. A semiconductor diode is a crystalline piece of semiconductor material with a p–n junction connected to two electrical terminals. Today, most diodes are made of silicon, but other semiconductors such as selenium or germanium are sometimes used. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective.
