wire connections of a typical house circuit- thumbnailOne shows the wiring connections as they might be found in the electrical boxes.


cables as run ot lights and outlets in rooms- thumbnailThe other gives a floorplan of the same circuit, showing the cables as they might have been run in the rooms.


To compare the two diagrams, open both separately. Then you might want to print them. (For high resolution of the connections diagram print this.)
