*Edit***Circuit Diagram Symbols**. Symbol usage depends on the audience viewing the diagram. Some circuit symbols used in schematic diagrams are shown below.

Circuit symbols are used in circuit diagrams which show how a circuit is connected together. Our circuit diagram symbol library is schematic and includes many icons commonly used by engineers. All of the symbols used in circuit diagrams represent a specific electronic component.

### Circuit symbols are used in circuit diagrams which show how a circuit is connected together.

Electrical symbols are the most commonly used symbols in circuit diagramming.

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. We use circuit symbols to draw diagrams of electrical circuits, with straight lines to show the wires. This article shows many of the frequently used electrical symbols for drawing electrical diagrams.
