Power supply is a hardware component that supplies power to an electrical device. It receives power from an electrical outlet and converts the current from AC (alternating current) to DC (direct current), which is what the computer requires. It also regulates the voltage to an adequate amount, which allows the computer to run smoothly without overheating. The power supply an integral part of any computer and must function correctly for the rest of the components to work.
AC power plugs and sockets are devices that allow electrically operated equipment to be connected to the primary alternating current (AC) power supply in a building. Electrical plugs and sockets differ in voltage and current rating, shape, size and type of connectors. The types used in each country are set by national standards, some of which are listed in the IEC technical report TR 60083, Plugs and socket-outlets for domestic and similar general use standardized in member countries of IEC. Plugs and sockets for portable appliances started becoming available in the 1880s, to replace connections to light sockets with easier to use wall-mounted outlets. A proliferation of types developed to address the issues of convenience and protection from electric shock. Today there are approximately 20 types in common use around the world, and many obsolete socket types are still found in older buildings. Co-ordination of technical standards has allowed some types of plugs to be used over wide regions to facilitate trade in electrical appliances, and for the convenience of travellers and consumers of imported electrical goods. Some multi-standard sockets allow use of several different types of plugs; improvised or unapproved adapters between incompatible sockets and plugs may not provide the full safety and performance of an approved adapter.
Interior Design Piping Plan – Design Elements
The pipe laying and setting the plumbing system at new apartment or home, or replacing the worn plumbing begins from the choice of materials, sizes of pipes and creation the plan. When developing a piping system, the engineer should take into account many aspects, such as advantages and disadvantages of different pipes materials, the temperature changes (freezing or thermal expansion) that effect on pipes. The most commonly used are steel pipes which have passed the test of time, but they are difficult for assembling and prone to corrosion, plastic (polypropylene) pipes that are characterized by low weight and price, ease of installation and durability, and also PEX-AL-PEX pipes. Numerous libraries with ready-to-use design elements of pipes, valves and other plumbing and piping equipment included to Plumbing and Piping Plans solution for ConceptDraw PRO help easy design Piping and Plumbing interior design plans, blueprints, schematic diagrams, technical drawings of waste water disposal systems, hot and cold water supply systems.
Power socket outlet layout
“The term plug is in general and technical use in all forms of English, common alternatives being power plug, electric plug, and (in the UK) plug top. The normal technical term (in both British and International English) for an AC power socket is socket-outlet, but in non-technical common use a number of other terms are used. In British English the general term is socket, but there are numerous common alternatives, including power point, plug socket, wall socket, and wall plug. In American English receptacle and outlet are common, sometimes with qualifiers such as wall outlet, electrical outlet and electrical receptacle, all of these sometimes to be found in the same document. A socket may be surrounded by a decorative and/or protective cover called a wall plate, face plate, outlet cover, socket cover, or wall cover. In some designs this is an integral piece with the socket itself, bought and installed as a single unit.
