Electrical Symbols, Electrical Diagram Symbols


ConceptDraw PRO
Discover the World of Visual Communication



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.

How to create Electrical Diagram? It’s very easy! All you need is a powerful software. It wasn’t so easy to create Electrical Symbols and Electrical Diagram as it is now with electrical diagram symbols offered by the libraries of Electrical Engineering Solution from the Engineering Area at the ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Example 1. Electrical Symbols: the libraries of Electrical Diagram Symbols in Solution Browser

Electrical Engineering Solution includes the set of electrical engineering samples, which can be not only viewed but also edited in ConceptDraw PRO. It's convenient to use the predesigned electrical symbols from 26 libraries: 926 electrical schematic symbols of Electrical Engineering Solution.
