A qualifying symbol is graphics or text added to the basic outline of a device’s logic symbol to describe the physical or logical characteristics of the device.

How to Create an Electrical Diagram Using Qualifying Library

  • Open ConceptDraw DIAGRAM new document page.
  • Select libraries from Electrical Engineering section.

    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 Smart Connector. 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.

Beginning from the 19th century, people tried to tame electricity. Nowadays, electrical engineering covers a wide range of applications starting from providing illumination in our homes to developing space technologies. Considering the fact that every project needs documentation, engineers use electrical diagram software to develop these projects. Standard electrical symbols of electrical components are recognizable all around the world. This illustration represents the 26 libraries that are supplied by the ConceptDraw Electrical Engineering solution. The Electric Engineering libraries contains about a thousand objects enabling you to draw various charts depicting electrical connections and circuits, along with schemes of different equipment and devices. The electric engineering libraries delivered with ConceptDraw solution meet the standards adopted in the image to electrical circuits. So they can be used by professionals along with amateurs in electrical engineering.Electrical Diagram Software *

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps. Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.Types of Flowchart - Overview *
