Rubber-like synthetic polymer insulation is used in industrial cables and power cables installed underground because of its superior moisture resistance.
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.
Some components and symbols of wiring diagram are: Capacitor, used to store electric charge. Toggle Switch, stops the flow of current when open. Push Button Switch, momentarily allows current flow when button is pushed in, breaks current when released. Battery, stores electric charge and generates a constant voltage .Resistor, restricts current flow. Ground wire, used for protection. Circuit breaker, used to protect a circuit from an overload of current. Inductor, a coil that generates a magnetic field. Antenna, transmits and receives radio waves. Surge protector, used to protect a circuit from a spike in voltage. Lamp, generates light when current flows through. Diode, allows current to flow in one direction indicated by an arrowhead or triangle on the wire. Microphone, converts sound into electrical signal. Electrical motor. Transformer, changes AC voltage from high to low or vice versa. Headphone. Thermostat. Electrical outlet. Junction box.
