6 Attenuator Symbols for Fixed, Balanced, Unbalanced and Vatiable Types

The Electronic Devices which reduce the power of a signal without distorting the original waveform are known as Attenuators.
The gain of Attenuator is always less than 1.

The attenuators are designed by using the passive devices. Usually, the simple voltage divider network and potentiometers are used in design.

The symbolic diagram below displays 6 electrical symbols for:

  1. Fixed
  2. Balanced
  3. Unbalanced
  4. Variable
  5. Balanced Variable
  6. Unbalanced Variable
