    The 10 Best Wiring Installers Near Me (with Free Estimates) - October 9, 2019 by admin

    "game consoles and a plethora of smart home lights, security cameras, alarms, deadbolts, and a small army of Alexa-capable devices) all connected by both wired and wireless connections. Yeah, it's all wonderful, when the network holding it all together works consistently.The area behind my workbench looked like a rat's nest with all the NAS boxes, smart hubs, and wall warts plugged in to different power strips and cables running every direction. The NAS boxes and hubs also took up a LOT of space on my workbench and shelves. And to make things worse, some devices were connected to several 'Gigabit' ethernet switches, and some to mere 'Fast Ethernet' switches, that were then connected to other Gigabit ethernet switches. In effect, I paid a lot of money to buy fast equipment that I then slowed down by connecting it to old stuff. In case you hadn't figured it out yet, networks aren't my forte... I was beginning to have problems accessing the internet in certain areas because of conflicts with the new AlticeOne system... (which I got in an attempt to resolve wireless connectivity issues) but Optimum's tech support wasn't much help at all. In fact, I'm sure their configuration of my Altice mini box wireless extenders created many of the problems. In short, everything network-related in my home was a complete mess.Cut back to the PC and printer issue. Because of their location, I was relying on wireless connections to get the offending PC and printer to even talk to each other. But the signal dropped every few minutes and the PC could never locate the printer, which, because it couldn't find the PC either, kept going offline. It was horrible. I figured the best way to fix it was to run two new ethernet cables to provide direct connectivity. I used Thumbtack and was provided the names of several cabling and network companies. I selected a company named, 'Cables First' Why? I have no idea. But I'm glad I did. While we were talking over the details, Chris, the owner, asked me if I had a patch panel for the existing internet cables. Being a relative network neophyte (duh), I asked, "What is a patch panel?" When he explained what was and its usefulness in a network environment, I became fairly excited at the possibilities for improving my network situation beyond what I'd originally planned. Then, before we'd even settled on terms of the original work, Chris tried to get in touch with me about solving a specific network connectivity problem I mentioned having. He had his network engineer on a conference line and they were going to talk me through resolving my immediate problem. I was unavailable at the time he called, but I was impressed with his extra effort to help solve my problems. So I decided to ask Chris to help me straighten out my self-inflicted network problems.We worked together to design a wall mounted rack that would hold all my NAS and hub equipment, and then the true magic began. I was NOT looking forward to undoing the wiring mess that I had created over several years, but Chris said, "Don't touch anything, we'll sort it all out and get it put back together in perfect order..." And the short version of the story is... they did. Now my entire network is humming along perfectly, problems were solved that I didn't even know I had. And Chris and his guys went above and beyond the call to make sure everything was neat, well labeled, and in perfect working order. While we were troubleshooting the wired connection to my Onkyo receiver, the network engineer even helped straighten out the configuration errors I'd inadvertently created, and in the process fixed the sound problem I was having with my Rega Planar 3 turntable. Am I happy? In a word. Extremely."

    5 Essential Tips for Safe Electrical Repairs - October 9, 2019 by admin

    Receptacles come in different amperage ratings such as 20 amp (left) and 15 amp (right).

    Courtesy of Home-Cost

    All electrical wiring and devices have an amperage, or amp, rating. This is the maximum amount of electrical current they can safely carry. Most standard household circuits are rated for 15 amps or 20 amps, while large-appliance circuits (such as for electric dryers and ranges) may be rated for 30, 40, 50 amps, or even more.

    When installing or replacing wiring or devices, all of the parts you use must have the appropriate amperage rating for the circuit. For example, a 20-amp circuit must have 12-gauge wiring, which is rated for 20 amps. If you install 14-gauge, 15-amp wiring on that circuit, you create a fire hazard because the 20-amp circuit breaker protecting that circuit might not shut off before the 15-amp wiring overheats.

    Choosing the Right Amperage

    When replacing a switch, light fixture, or outlet receptacle, make sure not to install a device that is rated for more amperage than the circuit carries. This is especially important when replacing receptacles. A receptacle rated for 20-amps has a unique prong shape in which one of the vertical slots has a T shape. This shape allows 20-amp appliances, which have a matching T-shaped prong, to be inserted. Installing such a receptacle on a 15-amp circuit makes it possible to possibly overload the circuit if you plug such a 20-amp appliance into it.

    Note, however,that there is no danger to installing 15-amp receptacles in 20-amp circuits since it is perfectly fine when a plug-in device draws less power than the circuit amperage. In fact, it is quite normal for 20-amp general-use circuits to be wired with 15-amp receptacles.

    The 10 Best Cable TV Wiring Installation Near Me (with … - October 7, 2019 by admin

    You may be able to mount your flat screen TV above your fireplace for a more streamlined look in your living room. In fact, TV mounting professionals can hang your flat screen TV flush with a wall or from a tilting or full-motion bracket mount in any room in your home. A tilting or full-motion mount may be the best option above a fireplace so you can tilt the TV down for the best viewing angle. Whether the wall above your fireplace is brick, drywall, concrete, stone or plaster, most television mounting services can accommodate your needs. Hardier wall surfaces like concrete or brick will require more labor and expertise to mount, and will likely have a higher price range.

    If you want your AV and cable wires hidden in the wall, you will also pay a higher price due to the added time and skill to properly drill the holes and run wires. Before mounting your TV above your fireplace, consult with the manufacturer about necessary distance from heat sources. If the space above your fireplace gets too warm, another location could be better for the longevity of your TV. Your television mounting services may take between one and two hours, or more depending on your home theater setup.

    Types of Wiring Systems and Methods of Electrical Wiring - May 2, 2019 by admin

    What is Electrical Wiring?

    Electrical Wiring is a process of connecting cables and wires to the related devices such as fuse, switches, sockets, lights, fans etc to the main distribution board is a specific structure to the utility pole for continues power supply.

    Wiring (a process of connecting various accessories for distribution of electrical energy from suppliers meter board to home appliances such as lamps, fans and other domestic appliances is known as Electrical Wiring) can be done using two methods which are

    They are discussed as follows:

    In this method of wiring, connections to appliances are made through joints. These joints are made in joint boxes by means of suitable connectors or joints cutouts. This method of wiring doesnt consume too much cables size.

    You might think because this method of wiring doesnt require too much cable it is therefore cheaper. It is of course but the money you saved from buying cables will be used in buying joint boxes, thus equation is balanced. This method is suitable for temporary installations and it is cheap.

    This method of wiring is universally used in wiring. Lamps and other appliances are connected in parallel so that each of the appliances can be controlled individually. When a connection is required at a light or switch, the feed conductor is looped in by bringing it directly to the terminal and then carrying it forward again to the next point to be fed.

    The switch and light feeds are carried round the circuit in a series of loops from one point to another until the last on the circuit is reached. The phase or line conductors are looped either in switchboard or box and neutrals are looped either in switchboard or from light or fan. Line or phase should never be looped from light or fan.

    There are additional types of conduit wiring according to Pipes installation (Where steel and PVC pipes are used for wiring connection and installation).

    This system of wiring comprise of ordinary VIR or PVC insulated wires (occasionally, sheathed and weather proof cable) braided and compounded held on walls or ceilings by means of porcelain cleats, Plastic or wood.

    Cleat wiring system is a temporary wiring system therefore it is not suitable for domestic premises. The use of cleat wiring system is over nowadays.

    Casing and Capping wiring system was famous wiring system in the past but, it is considered obsolete this days because of Conduit and sheathed wiring system. The cables used in this kind of wiring were either VIR or PVC or any other approved insulated cables.

    The cables were carried through the wooden casing enclosures. The casing is made up of a strip of wood with parallel grooves cut length wise so as to accommodate VIR cables. The grooves were made to separate opposite polarity. the capping (also made of wood) used to cover the wires and cables installed and fitted in the casing.

    Single core or double core or three core TRS cables with a circular oval shape cables are used in this kind of wiring. Mostly, single core cables are preferred. TRS cables are chemical proof, water proof, steam proof, but are slightly affected by lubricating oil. The TRS cables are run on well seasoned and straight teak wood batten with at least a thickness of 10mm.

    The cables are held on the wooden batten by means of tinned brass link clips (buckle clip) already fixed on the batten with brass pins and spaced at an interval of 10cm for horizontal runs and 15cm for vertical runs.

    The type of wiring employs conductors that are insulated with VIR and covered with an outer sheath of lead aluminum alloy containing about 95% of lead. The metal sheath given protection to cables from mechanical damage, moisture and atmospheric corrosion.

    The whole lead covering is made electrically continuous and is connected to earth at the point of entry to protect against electrolytic action due to leaking current and to provide safety in case the sheath becomes alive. The cables are run on wooden batten and fixed by means of link clips just as in TRS wiring.

    There are two additional types of conduit wiring according to pipe installation

    If conduits installed on roof or wall, It is known as surface conduit wiring. in this wiring method, they make holes on the surface of wall on equal distances and conduit is installed then with the help of rawal plugs.

    If the conduits is hidden inside the wall slots with the help of plastering, it is called concealed conduit wiring. In other words, the electrical wiring system inside wall, roof or floor with the help of plastic or metallic piping is called concealed conduit wiring. obliviously, It is the most popular, beautiful, stronger and common electrical wiring system nowadays.

    In conduit wiring, steel tubes known as conduits are installed on the surface of walls by means of pipe hooks (surface conduit wiring) or buried in walls under plaster and VIR or PVC cables are afterwards drawn by means of a GI wire of size if about 18SWG.

    In Conduit wiring system, The conduits should be electrically continuous and connected to earth at some suitable points in case of steel conduit. Conduit wiring is a professional way of wiring a building. Mostly PVC conduits are used in domestic wiring.

    The conduit protects the cables from being damaged by rodents (when rodents bites the cables it will cause short circuit) that is why circuit breakers are in place though but hey! Prevention is better than cure. Lead conduits are used in factories or when the building is prone to fire accident. Trunking is more of like surface conduit wiring. Its gaining popularity too.

    It is done by screwing a PVC trunking pipe to a wall then passing the cables through the pipe. The cables in conduit should not be too tight. Space factor have to be put into consideration.

    Following conduits are used in the conduit wiring systems (both concealed and surface conduit wiring) which are shown in the above image.

    Metallic conduits are made of steel which are very strong but costly as well.

    There are two types of metallic conduits.

    A solid PVC conduit is used as non-metallic conduit now a days, which is flexible and easy to bend.

    The common conduit pipes are available in different sizes genially, 13, 16.2, 18.75, 20, 25, 37, 50, and 63 mm (diameter) or 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 1, 1.25, 1.5, and 2 inch in diameter.

    Below is the table which shows the comparison between all the above mentioned wiring systems.

    We will discuss the step by step method of different wiring systems in coming posts.. So stay tune and dont forget to subscribe to our blog. Thanks

    2016 aftermarket tow hitch / wiring mounting installation … - March 15, 2019 by admin

    I am toying with the idea of buying the factory 7 pin/ 4 pin receptacle that snaps into the bumper and wiring to that. The big problem is... the back side of that is a female connector that receives the round factory connector which is only on the truck equipped with the factory installed tow package. One would have to source the connector on the factory harness. Since this is most likely impossible, the other option is to figure out a way to solder wires into the back side of the oval bumper receptacle and pot the wires. This would give you something to wire to. You could even wire a brake controller if you chose to. Seems like a lot of trouble to go through to tow with a truck. Toyota could have easily left a plug back there and sell the parts to install a nice factory 4 pin.

    Check to see that the Hopkins plug and play is for the 2016 and not the 2015. To my knowledge, no one on this site has successfully wired their 2016 for trailer lights. At least no one has done so without cutting the truck wires. I have not heard of anyone doing this yet. It seems everyone is installing the hitch and waiting on some non destructive wiring options.

    Float Switch Installation Wiring And Control Diagrams | APG - March 15, 2019 by admin

    How do I install and wire my float switch? Where can I find a float switch circuit diagram? Where can I find a float switch wiring diagram? You asked, and today, we answer.

    Wiring a float switch isnt necessarily hard, but it can be a little confusing if you dont have a visual aid or two. Remember that what youre wiring is a means of turning things on and off. Thinking carefully about when you want something off, and when it should turn on, will help you as you visualize the wiring and apply the schematic to real world control.

    Were going to look at a progression of straightforward pump control arrangements using float switches. Well look at single and double switch arrangements and how to wire them, and then look at equivalent circuits using Kari series float switches.

    These instructions and diagrams will serve to teach you the basics of float switch control wiring. They certainly dont apply in all scenarios, especially when additional control equipment is needed to handle large motors. However, with a little bit of fundamentals, youll be wiring like an old pro in no time.

    So there we have it. A two-wire float switch that can easily be used for turning a pump on or off. Mount or suspend your switch at the desired level, get your wires into a water-tight junction box (or out of the liquid containment area and then into a junction box), check the connections back to your control and power equipment, and youre done.

    Its a very simple solution, but its also problematic because level fluctuations will cause the float to flutter, which will turn the pump motor on and off in quick succession. And now your simple solution has burned up a pump motor. So what can we do to protect the pump motor?

    We can add a second switch to create hysteresis. Hyste-what?? Yeah, well get there. Hang on.

    What we need is a way to allow for a level switch to turn on and off without cycling the pump motor at the same time. We could add a time delay, but that doesnt help monitor and respond to the conditions in the tank; it only overrides the switch. However, if we add a second switch that is identical to the first, and wire a seal-in relay around one of them, well get the control were looking for.

    When the liquid is below both switches, they are both closed; the pump runs, filling the tank. As the liquid fills past the first switch, it opens. However, seal-in relay A has been activated and closed, bypassing the now-open switch L (effectively sealing it in), so the pump continues to run until the high-level switch H opens. When the high-level switch opens, the motor relay P opens, stopping the motor, and seal-in relay A opens.

    So no more liquid is coming into the tank from this pump. Lets say a valve downstream of the tank is opened, allowing liquid to drain out of the tank. As the liquid level falls, high-level switch H closes. But since both low-level switch L and seal-in relay A are open, the pump motor does not start.

    In fact, the liquid level in the tank must fall below low-level switch L before the motor will start. At that point, both the low-level and high-level switches will be closed, completing the circuit, and activating motor relay P to start the pump. At the same time, seal-in relay A will be activated, closing the by-pass around low-level switch L. So when low-level switch L opens as the pump fills the tank, the seal-in relay keeps the circuit closed, and the pump keeps pumping.

    This cyclical action is called hysteresis. Once the liquid level falls below the low-level switch, the pump will run until both switches are open. The liquid level can fluctuate up and down, the low-level switch can open and close, and the pump will continue to run smoothly. Similarly, once the high-level switch opens, the pump will not run until both switches have closed. Regardless of level fluctuations, no more pump motor flutter.

    Great! Weve got level control, reasonable pump-motor life, everything we could want, right? Lets wire it up. We need to wire both float switches back to our control circuitry, plus we have to add the contacts and seal-in relay A. The low-level switch wires to terminals 1 and 2, the high-level switch to terminals 3 and 4, and the contacts for seal-in relay A to terminals 5 and 6.

    So thats at least four, if not six, wires that need to be hooked up to the control circuitry. (Wiring for the seal-in relay and contacts will depend on your control equipment.) Thats not so bad: two float switches, an additional relay, and four to six wires. But what if I tell you that you can do it with just two wires? Not two additional wires, just two wires.

    Thats right. With a KARI series 2L float switch, you get the same hysteresis control using one switch and two wires instead of two switched and four or six wires. What is this Magic, you ask? Simple: each KARI series float switch has multiple microswitches and control circuitry built into the float.

    As the single KARI series float rises with the liquid level in the tank, it tilts to one side. The microswitches inside the float activate at factory-set angles as the float tilts, and the preprogrammed control circuitry responds accordingly.

    So what do you need to wire this up? We can go back to control schematic 1: just two wires between the switch and the motor control circuit, (+) wire to terminal 1 and (-) to terminal 2. No seal-in relays, no extra switches, nothing else. Two wires, and youre done.

    Take a look at the Control Schematic 4. On the bottom line you have the wiring terminals for the switches providing hysteresis (wires 1 & 2). The next line up is for a high-high-level alarm (i.e., a higher level than the high-level hysteresis switch). As with the seal-in relay above, the wiring necessary for the alarm contact will vary based on your control equipment. All that is left is installing the switch per the manufacturers instructions for your desired levels.

    Weve spent quite a bit of time talking about how float switches can be used to turn pumps on and off, so its worth taking a moment to talk specifically about motor starting and motor control. For small motors DC motors, motors up to 1 HP the relay-driven contactors shown in the diagrams above are probably sufficient for starting the motor. No harm will come to these motors (or the loads they are driving) from starting and stopping via a contactor acting as an on-off switch.

    For larger motors, inrush current (up to six or eight times full load current) becomes an important factor in the starting and maintenance of the motor, rendering contactors insufficient as stand-alone motor starters. Such motors need integrated controllers and overload protection in order to start safely and still be protected while running at full load. Fortunately, most motors of this size will either be controlled via a motor control center (MCC) or a dedicated control panel, both of which are fully capable of integrating control circuits and instruments like those shown above.

    In all reality, most of the pumps and motors you would control with a float switch are probably large enough to require these integrated controls. While the setup is more complicated than the wiring schematics provided above, the wiring is often simplified for the end user because the system provider has done most of the work.

    However, understanding the basics of float switch control wiring will help you work confidently no matter how powerful or complex the system. Everything from float switch installation to troubleshooting will become easier. And, of course, were always available to help out if you feel the need.

    Thermostat Wiring Colors Code | HVAC Control Wire Details - December 20, 2018 by admin

    Tstat Terminal DesignationColor of Wire and Termination R The R terminal is the power. This comes from the transformer usually located in the air handler for split systems but you may find the transformer in the condensing unit. For this reason, it is a good idea to kill the power at the condenser and the air handler before changing or working on the wiring at the tstat. If you have a package unit then the transformer is in the package unit.Red for the R terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostat didnt use conventional color coding. RC The RC terminal is designated for the power for cooling. Some HVAC systems use two transformers. A transformer for cooling and a transformer for heating. In this case, the power from the transformer in the air conditioning system would go to the thermostat terminal. It should be noted that a jumper can be installed between RC and RH for a heating and cooling system equipped with a single transformer.Red for RC terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostatdidntuse conventional color coding. RH The RH terminal is designated for the power for heating. See RC above for an explanation. It should be noted that a jumper can be installed between RC and RH. This is only forheating and cooling systems equipped with a single transformer.Red for RH terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostatdidntuse conventional color coding. Y This is the terminal for cooling or air conditioning and goes to the compressor relay. Typically a thermostat wire pull is made to the air handler on split systems. This wire is then spliced for the separate wire pull which is made to the condenser. Some manufacturers put a terminal board strip near the control board in the air handler. Therefore, a splice is not needed.Yellow for Y Terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostatdidntuse conventional color coding. Y2 This is the terminal for cooling second stage if your system is so equipped. Many systems only have a single compressor but if you have two compressors (or a two stage compressor) which should only operate off of one thermostat then you need the Y2 thermostat terminal for second stage cooling.*The most common colorIveseen used for this terminal and wire designation is light blue but this varies and is completely up to the installer what color to use.For the thermostat wiring colors code for this terminal (if equipped) consult with the installer. If that is not possible then trace the wire out to the source. W This is the terminal for heating. This wire should go directly to the heating source whether it be a gas or oil furnace, electric furnace, or boiler or auxiliary heating for a heat pump.White for W Terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostatdidntuse conventional color coding. W2 This is the terminal used for second stage heat. There are gas furnaces with low fire and high fire and some depend on control from a two-stage heating thermostat with a W2 terminal. Heat Pumps use staging for auxiliary heat and need a W2 terminal.*The most common color Ive seen used for this terminal and wire designation is brown but this varies and is completely up to the installer what color to use. For the thermostat wiring colors code for this terminal (if equipped) consult with the installer or trace the wire out to the source. G This is the terminal used for the fan relay to energize the indoor blower fan. On a split system the blower fan is in the air handler. A package unit the blower fan is in the outdoor package unit.Green for G Terminal. *Although be aware that this may have changed especially if the person who wired the thermostatdidntuse conventional color coding. C This is the terminal which originates from the transformer and is necessary to complete the 24 volts power circuit in the thermostat but only if the thermostat consumes electricity for power. Many digital thermostats require 24 volts for power so the common wire is necessary.C stands for common and there is no universal color used for this terminal although black is the most common color Ive seen. For the thermostat wiring colors code for this terminal (if equipped) consult with the installer. If that is not possible then trace the wire out to the source. O or B These terminals are for heat pumps and the B tstat terminal is used on for Rheem or Ruud and any manufacturer that energizes the reversing valve in heating mode for the heat pump. Other manufacturers of heat pumps utilize the reversing valve for cooling. The O thermostat terminal will be utilized for this purpose. This wire goes to outside heat pump condenser where the reversing valve is located.Orange for O and Dark Blue for B depending on the installer of the heat pump and the manufacturer. If you have a Trane, Carrier, Goodman, Lennox, Ducane, Heil, Fedders, Amana, Janitrol, or any other manufacturer other than Rheem or Ruud you will be utilizing the orange wire for reversing valve. Rheem and Ruud will usually utilize the blue wire for reversing valve. E This terminal is for heat pumps and stands for Emergency Heating. If for whatever reason the heat pump condenser fails and it is necessary to run the heat there is an option on heat pump thermostats for emergency heating. Basically, this simply utilizes the back-up heat source many heat pumps have to heat the home without sending a signal to the condenser to run for heat.E There is no universal color used for this terminal designation but this should be wired directly to the heating relay or the E terminal on a terminal strip board in the air handler or package unit if you have a heat pump package unit. X or Aux This terminal is for back-up on a heat pump and allows for auxiliary heating from the back-up heat source usually located in the air handler.X or Aux There is no universal color used for this terminal designation but this should be wired directly to the heating relay or the Aux terminal on a terminal strip board in the air handler or package unit if you have a heat pump package unit. S1 & S2 or (Outdoor 1 and Outdoor 2) Some tstats have this terminal. It used for an outdoor temperature sensor. Special shielded wire is used for this run and completely separate form the other thermostat wires. Some manufacturers will show this the T terminals on their thermostat.Using shielded wire prevents electromagnetic forces generated from other wires from interfering with the signal inside the shielded wire. A remote temperature sensor is a solid state device. The signal needed to get an accurate temperature is sensitive to electromagnetic forces from other wiring inside the structure. This type of wire is different from the typical thermostat wire and a separate wire altogether.

    Wiring Diagram – Everything You Need to Know About Wiring … - November 8, 2018 by admin

    What is a Wiring Diagram?

    A wiring diagram is a simple visual representation of the physical connections and physical layout of an electrical system or circuit. It shows how the electrical wires are interconnected and can also show where fixtures and components may be connected to the system.

    Use wiring diagrams to assist in building or manufacturing the circuit or electronic device. They are also useful for making repairs.

    DIY enthusiasts use wiring diagrams but they are also common in home building and auto repair.

    For example, a home builder will want to confirm the physical location of electrical outlets and light fixtures using a wiring diagram to avoid costly mistakes and building code violations.

    SmartDraw comes with pre-made wiring diagram templates. Customize hundreds of electrical symbols and quickly drop them into your wiring diagram. Special control handles around each symbol allow you to quickly resize or rotate them as necessary.

    To draw a wire, simply click on the Draw Lines option on the left hand side of the drawing area. If you right click on a line, you can change the line's color or thickness and add or remove arrowheads as necessary. Drag a symbol onto the line and it will insert itself and snap into place. Once connected, it will remain connected even if you move the wire.

    If you need additional symbols, click the arrow next to the visible library to bring up a drop down menu and select More. You'll be able to search for additional symbols and open any relevant libraries.

    Click on Set Line Hops in the SmartPanel to show or hide line hops at crossover points. You can also change the size and shape of your line hops. Select Show Dimensions to show the length of your wires or size of your component.

    A schematic shows the plan and function for an electrical circuit, but is not concerned with the physical layout of the wires. Wiring diagrams show how the wires are connected and where they should located in the actual device, as well as the physical connections between all the components.

    Unlike a pictorial diagram, a wiring diagram uses abstract or simplified shapes and lines to show components. Pictorial diagrams are often photos with labels or highly-detailed drawings of the physical components.

    If a line touching another line has a black dot, it means the lines are connected. When unconnected lines are shown crossing, you'll see a line hop.

    Most symbols used on a wiring diagram look like abstract versions of the real objects they represent. For example, a switch will be a break in the line with a line at an angle to the wire, much like a light switch you can flip on and off. A resistor will be represented with a series of squiggles symbolizing the restriction of current flow. An antenna is a straight line with three small lines branching off at its end, much like a real antenna.

    The best way to understand wiring diagrams is to look at some examples of wiring diagrams.
