Sixteenth Ham lesson o’ de day

Schematics!  The visual description of a circuit by using standardized symbols of the different electrical components.  Thus far, we’ve gone through resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors, fuses, circuit breakers, switches, and relays.

Quite a few.  I’ll show the basic symbols for the following, but for more detailed/specific ones, google is a fantastic resource :p.

Resistors:

Capacitors:

Inductors:

Diodes:

Transistors:

The arrows always point towards the N-type material.

Fuses:

Circuit Breakers:

Switches:

Relays:

As you can tell, these are pretty similar to the switches.

I think I’ll come up with a more interesting way to demonstrate these schematic symbols.
