Schematic Symbol Reference

Home > Electronics > Schematic Symbol Reference

Using the reference is very simple. All you need to do is move your mouse over the symbol you want information about and click. Note that when you move your mouse over any symbol, an explaination of what is appears below the graphic. To move between the different catagories, just click the approiate link under "Catagories", or use the "Next" and "Previous" links to surf through the various catagories. Remember that there are a few variations in the way different people draw their symbols. For example, some use earth ground and circuit ground to mean the same thing. This reference tries to provide the industry standard symbols.

If at some points it seems like I am repeating myself, I am. This is so that you can look up the symbols in any order you wish. I have also left space in several of the image maps in case there are new symbols introduced. Please note that the symbols are in no particular order. Nevertheless, the reference is still very easy to use as everything is plainly visible.

I think that you should really view this in 800x600 resolution. I tried to make it work in all resolutions, but this is the way it turned out. It should still work fine in 640x480, but there will be a lot more scrolling. Anything less than 640x480 will probably make this reference totally unusable.

If you would like an offline version of this reference, take a look at the Electronics Software page.

Note: You do not have a JavaScript compatible browser so some of the functions of this reference may not work. You should still be able to use most parts though.
