There are different voltage levels for different components in a house. For example, a phone or doorbell system would be considered low voltage because they use around twenty-volts with really low current. Lights and outlets require 120-volts with up to 20-amps of current. The bigger electrical circuits require heavier cable. They usually require 240-volts with up to 50-amps of current. The electrical circuits need to be planned out well in advance when the blueprints are being drawn up. I prefer to have about 40 copies of the floor plans in a notebook. I draw each electrical circuit on its own page of floor plans. This helps keep the circuits separate in my mind. The electrical blueprints can be very confusing especially if you do not know how to read blueprint symbols.
AllDetailDIY.com considers itself the leading source of professional diagnostic information. They offer full diagnostic flow charts of automotive electrical systems. Their charts offer both system and component perspectives. I found a great site for individual systems that covered all American made cars from 1985 to 2009. Wiringdiagram.com breaks it down by system, such as headlights, computer data lines and AC systems. Their individualized charts start at $5.99. They also offer information on 1960-1984 models starting at $6.99. They print the information into an Adobe PDF document and offer rushed service guaranteed to provide you with the diagrams for your particular car in less than 24 hours.
You will benefit from using residential wiring diagrams if you plan on completing electrical wiring projects in your home. An electrical wiring diagram can be as simple as a diagram showing how to install a new switch in your hallway, or as complex as the complete electrical blueprint for your new home. Although household electricity is nothing to play around with, in many ways, wiring is simpler than other repair and remodeling skills such as carpentry. Once you have learned some basic skills such as installing boxes, running cable, and splicing, you just need to determine which wire goes where. This is why a good wiring diagram is important for wiring your home safely. Keep your diagrams near-by. You will want to refer to them often as you work on your project.
The cable should be 12.2 Romex right up to the first switch, then run 12.3 Romex to the light and then on to the second switch. The 12.3 Romex has an extra wire called a traveler (usually red), which is necessary for 3-way switches. At the first switch, the 12.2 Romex from the circuit run enters the bottom of the switch box and the hot (black) cable connects to the bottom right terminal on the switch. The 12.3 Romex enters through the top of the switch box. The hot traveler (red) wire connects to top left terminal on the switch. The black (hot) wire connects to the top right terminal on the switch.
As an owner of a car, I find myself becoming educated on the subject of automotive wiring. Since I am just about the last person who should be playing with anything that has electrical current running through it, I was hesitant to attempt to tackle the issue of automotive wiring. However my vehicle decided otherwise when it started to randomly select electrical systems that it wanted to me tamper with. When the electric seat belts started to slide back and forth without reason as I drove down the highway, I decided I better figure out how to tamper with the electric systems, considering the exuberant rate of automotive repair.
One more complex type of wire application we can see used in cable harness or cable assembly in our car engine or in motorbikes. In car engines the wires are bundled in such a way that they are bound together through cable ties, electrical tapes and wire looms. These wires have to be protected from heat produced by engine, moisture, abrasion and vibrations. Space optimization is an equally important issue in such management and it should be easy to add, replace or remove any wire in case of troubleshooting or repairing.
The standard wiring used for homes is Number 12 or 14 gauge wiring. Under most codes, the smallest permitted wiring is Number 14.For continuation in any extended wiring circuit, always use the same size of cable. By remembering these basics in how to install electric wiring, the task of fixing or installing new wiring would be less confusing. There are three basic types of light switches. The first is a simple, single light switch. The second is a 3-way switch that controls one lighting fixture from two locations. The third is a 4-way switch that controls one lighting fixture from three or more locations. The easiest way for three-way switches is to place the light between the two switches. You have to look closely at an electrical wiring diagram to understand.
