Overview

Covering all types of electronic equipment, from industrial to home entertainment, this guide shows you the function of every circuit, the purpose of every part at a glance. Written in clear, easy-to-understand language, it takes the work out of reading schematics, and helps to identify quickly a wide variety of circuits.


What You Will Learn from This Guide

Complete Guide to Reading Schematic Diagrams takes the toil out of reading schematics. With it you’ll find your way through even the most formidable with the ease of reading a road map. You’ll be able to make the most of these "electrical pictures," know the function of every circuit, the purpose of every part, at a glance.

Here, in this one fact-filled guidebook, are step-by-step explanations of more than 150 electronic circuits that you'll meet in schematic dia grams of all types of electronic equipment, from industrial to home entertainment.

Each section covers one of the main groups of circuits. First, you get the basic circuit, with the distinctive features emphasized to enable you to identify it quickly, so you’ll know right away whether it’s an amplifier, an oscillator, or something else. You’ll then get a brief description of the circuit, which will help you decide whether it's the one you need to investigate further.

If it is, you'll be shown how to break this circuit down into its sub circuits, with an explanation of each component, what its function is, and how a defect in it might affect the operation of the whole.

To help you in your circuit analysis there is also a comprehensive Appendix, with abundant supplementary data. Here you'll find charts, conversion tables, equations, definitions-everything you'll need to get the most out of each section-placed in an easy ready-reference section for convenience in looking things up and to keep the main text uncluttered and simple.

This new guidebook will help you become so at home with schematic diagrams that you’ll be able to use them with speed and certainty, whether you want to understand fully the operation of a piece of equipment or one of its circuits, or whether you want to diagnose troubles, locate faulty components and make faster repairs.

Either way, this means more money for you, faster results and greater satisfaction from a job well done. In the rapidly changing world of electronics it , s the man who really knows and understands schematic diagrams who stands the best chance of success.
