Isometric Diagram—Shows the outline of a ship, airplane, or piece of equipment. This
diagram shows the components and the cable runs between the components. This diagram is used to locate components
in a system.
Block Diagram—Shows the components in block form. Block diagrams are used in
conjunction with text material. They are used to present a general description of a system and its functions.
Single-Line Diagram—Used for essentially the same purpose as the block diagram-to show
the basic functions of a circuit.
Schematic Diagram—Shows, through graphic symbols, the electrical connections and
functions of a specific circuit arrangement. It is used to trace the circuit without regard to the physical size,
shape, or location of the component devices or parts. A schematic diagram shows the overall operation of a system.
It is used during troubleshooting to identify possible circuit malfunction locations.
Diagram—Is a detailed diagram of each circuit installation showing all wiring, connectors, terminal
boards, and the electrical or electronic components of the circuit. It also identifies the wire-by- wire numbers
or color coding. This diagram must be used in conjunction with a schematic diagram to troubleshoot a system in
order to find the test point for voltage and resistance checks.
Terminal Diagram—Is used
in connecting wiring to terminal boards, relays, switches, and other
components of a circuit.
Safety—All individuals are responsible for understanding and complying with safety
standards and regulations established to prevent injury to themselves and others and damage to property and
Having safe working habits and adhering to safety precautions protects YOU and YOUR SHIPMATES. Follow
safety precautions to the letter. DO NOT TAKE CHANCES. Carelessness could cost you your life.
