House electrical symbols

If you are looking for a simple list of house electrical symbols, below is one.

If you are surprised at how short the list it, then please know that this list of electrical symbols has been used in this country for thirty or maybe forty years.

As I said, I am breaking up the original article, Home electrical wiring, symbols and checking, into a number of small posts for the benefit of beginners so they can easily find what they are looking for.

Lighting symbol 1: 4 ft, 1 x 36 watt fluorescent light fitting, wall mounted type

Lighting symbol 2: 2 ft, 1 x 18 watt fluorescent fitting, ceiling mounted type

Lighting symbol 3: Globe-type light fitting complete with 1 x 60 watt incandescent bulb, wall-mounted type

Lighting symbol 4: Globe-type light fitting complete with 1 x 60 watt incandescent bulb, ceiling-mounted type

Fan symbol: 60-inch ceiling fan

Socket symbol: 13A 3-pin switched socket outlet, wall mounted

Switch symbol:  One-way 5A light switch

Fan switch symbol: Ceiling fan speed regulator, complete with ON/OFF switch

DB symbol: All-insulated 6-way consumer unit, complete with MCB and ELCB, wall-mounted type

Electricity meter symbol: Authority’s meter panel complete with cut-out fuse and neutral link, wall mounted type

There you have it. The symbols for a simple house electrical installation.

I have broken up the symbols from the original drawing for the benefit of the internet search engines, so they can find this post easily. That also means internet users can find them easily.

You can see the original symbol list below:

Diagram 11: House electrical symbols

You may notice that the original list contains a QUANTITY column on the right. (Click in the image to see the full size.)

This is the actual quantity of the materials in the original electrical layout, which you can see at this post, Simple house electrical schematic (Coming soon... ).

That is all I wish to say in this post. I will see you again in the next small post.
