Electrical Symbols — Transmission Paths

Data transmission, digital transmission or digital communications is the physical transfer of data (a digital bit stream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. Examples of such channels are copper wires, optical fibers, wireless communication channels, storage media and computer buses. The data are represented as an electromagnetic signal, such as an electrical voltage, radiowave, microwave, or infrared signal.

In communications and electronic engineering, a transmission line is a specialized cable or other structure designed to carry alternating current of radio frequency, that is, currents with a frequency high enough that their wave nature must be taken into account. Transmission lines are used for purposes such as connecting radio transmitters and receivers with their antennas, distributing cable television signals, trunklines routing calls between telephone switching centres, computer network connections and high speed computer data buses.

Bus Network Topology →

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work. This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.Bus Network Topology *

Network Topology →

Developing a corporate network starts from choosing equipment such as servers or routers. You should choose a topology for your network depending on your needs and budget. Thus, a star topology is cheap to implement, and mesh topology, for instance, is more reliable. This network diagram illustrates various types of computer network diagrams. Here one can find out the samples of Star, Ring, common Bus and even a rather rare fully connected network topologies. This diverse array of diagrams was created using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and its solution designed especially for computer networking: design and documenting. There are more than 2 thousands graphical symbols of network equipment in the solution's vector libraries. You can create a diagram of any type network, containing any equipment and connections - no matter is it the most ancient or the super-modern networkNetwork Topology

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 DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective.
