    Following on from the following previous blog about “What Symbols are contained within the Libraries of AutoCAD Electrical?” some new users have found the Autodesk web page cumbersome in understanding what symbols are contained in the IEC2 library which is still predominantly the main library used by users of AutoCAD Electrical within Northern Europe, we thought it prudent to provide a single PDF document detailing the core symbols within the library.


    The following document shows the default symbols that are included within the IEC2 (& IEC4) library in accordance with IEC60617. The purpose of this white paper is to provide new users with a quick reference guide without having to view each individual web page on the Autodesk website. The following does not include the parametric and/or dynamic symbols such as cables, PLC’s nor the dynamic source and destinations and only shows single phase representations of devices. Additional symbols may have been subsequently added by Autodesk and therefore this document is not guaranteed to be complete either.
