1. Introduction

A free electrical wiring diagram has electrical symbols that deliver graphic representation and describe the layout of an electrical wiring system. An electrical wiring diagram usually gives information about the relative position and arrangement of devices and terminals on the devices to help in building or servicing the device. 

As per the below image, an electrical wiring diagram shows the components of the circuit as simplified shapes and the power and signal connections between the devices. A graphical representation diagram would show more detail of the physical appearance, whereas an electrical wiring diagram uses a more symbolic notation to emphasize interconnections over physical appearance.

2. What is a Circuit Diagram

Circuit diagrams virtually represent electrical symbols or electronic circuits. Some standard circuit diagram symbols represent components in a circuit. 

Wire and connection symbols - Wire connects components and passes current easily from one part of a circuit. A 'blob' should be drawn where wires are connected (joined); wires connected at 'crossroads' should be staggered slightly to form two T-junctions, as shown on the right.
