Figure 13 Example Block Diagram
Each block represents a stage in the development of a signal that is used to display on the meter
at the bottom or to send to systems outside the bounds of the drawing. Notice that not all blocks
are equal. Some represent multiple functions, while others represent only a simple stage or single
bistable circuit in a larger component. The creator of the block diagram decides the content of
each block based on the intended use of the drawing.
Each of the type of drawing reviewed in this and previous modules is not always distinct and
separate. In many cases, two or more types of drawings will be combined into a single print.
This allows the necessary information to be presented in a clear and concise format.
