#Can anyone point me in the direction of a website which lists common symbols on drawings / schematics, ie. symbol for dist board etc.

I'm also after the same but for (mech / plumbing) heating & hot water drawings / schematics, ie. symbols for pumps , ball valves etc etc.

and while I'm here, I'm after the same for HVAC.


thanks

I don't know how close they are to the accepted set, but googling for Southampton University Estates Cad Symbols should get you about 25 pages for all M&E systems.

The Wiring Regs state that 'IEC 60617 is the central standards database for electrotechnical symbols' (see BS7671:2008, 2011 page 289 final para).

However in my experience accessing IEC 60617 is very difficult. This appears to be a European online facility accessible only by paid subscription. I have tried various sources including the IET Library at Savoy Place, London and even they do not have access. I raised this with them in March 2012 but have heard nothing since.

If you have more luck than me in getting into IEC 60617 please let me know

Regards

ZS that is brill.
With it you can build an artificial chuckle separator by adding only one non adjustable adjustment to the circuit
