Welcome to AAC.

Sorry, most people here don't click on unknown links. You can open the link yourself and copy and paste the symbols here. We'll do our best to answer your questions.

Look for the source of the symbols.

Circle is raw 12V input = waveform K
Triangle is 6V regulated output = waveform J
V is 6V minus one diode voltage drop = 5.4V = waveform I

Is that kind of a standard?

My PDF reader lets me open files in safe mode by default...

Definitely not standard.

Thanks dear.
Might be a language issue but don’t call people “dear”.

Back when single - between first and second marriage - I tried one of those dating sites. One woman I contacted did not have English as a first language. I'm a little heavy, heavier than what she desired. So she tried to tell me that she was not interested in dating a "Big, large, heavy man." It was her attempt at not calling me fat. Though it didn't come out right, it was appreciated that she made the effort.

Calling me dear - while not correct - is not offensive. At least not to me. Try that in the American work place and you could find yourself in HR quickly. Maybe even the unemployment line.

There are words of endearment that are used in certain cultural settings,
dear, love, pet, honey, darling, sweet heart...
but you don’t use it in a formal setting.

Worked with a Scottish woman. She called everyone "Love". "Hello Love. How are you today?" Brought my first wife into work on a Saturday just for a visit. This woman said "Hello Love." and my wife had a fit. Had to explain she calls everyone love. Though I wouldn't recommend saying that to a Board of Director or an HR manager.

Back on topic: What triangles, circles and V symbols are you referring to?

Oh my God. We use this word frequently for anyone here in Dubai.
Yes, you are right. English isn't my first language.
Sorry, for that and thanks for correction
