One of the most important steps in detailing today's projects is creating the low voltage wiring drawings / diagrams and related documentation for door openings with electrified hardware. In this course you will learn to use a free downloadable computer drawing program (Libre Office Draw) to create your drawings and will return to your workplace with the ability to create drawings for your projects. This course will teach you how to use correct industry recognized symbols and drawing techniques to help you communicate the project's requirements more effectively with the electrician, installer and systems integrators. You will learn how to:
- Create electrified door elevation diagrams
- Create riser diagrams
- Create point-to-point wiring diagrams
- Use relays to control circuits
Please note: This course is not designed to provide students with in-depth software knowledge.
DHI recommends the use of Libre Office Draw as free software, but if you are already familiar with a different software, you are welcome to use it for the class.
All homework assignments must be provided as PDF files in order to receive instructor feedback.
