The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association�s R10 Residential Systems committee says there are now software versions of the symbols defined in the April publication of ANSI Standard J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols.

The standard defines a common set of floor plan icons that represents pre-wire and installation of electronic systems, products and devices in residential and commercial environments.

�Not only was the architectural drawings standard a huge milestone for the low-voltage industry,� said Walt Zerbe, product manager, audio, for OnQ Legrand and NuVo; and chairman of CEA's R10 Residential Systems Committee in a press release. �But it took the very important step of providing the actual symbols themselves! All of the actual symbols are included with the standard in trusted industry formats, which can be loaded into your favorite design and layout software tools.�

Software file formats for symbols are in black and white and include:

  • � � � � � �.dwg for use with AutoCADD and compatible software
  • � � � � � �.vss stencils for use with Microsoft Visio
  • � � � � � �.png graphics with transparent backgrounds
  • � � � � � �.jpg standard graphic format with white backgrounds
  • � � � � � �.gif graphics with transparent backgrounds
  • � � � � � �.tif graphics for printing, non-transparent
