I've never seen this symbol before but my wiring diagram is full of it. I also have searched for lists of symbols but it isn't among them. Does anybody know what is is? It is from my wiring diagram of a Yamaha RS 125. https://pasteboard.co/HX0dVKZ.jpg (the image was to large so i uploaded it to pasteboard so it wouldn't get compressed)

But this is the symbol in question.

  • \$\begingroup\$ New user should be able to add two images and two links. I didn't downvote. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Jan 18 '19 at 13:18

It's non-standard. But I've seen similar symbols before that were for single-terminal connectors, such as bullet-crimps:

    \$\begingroup\$ And presumably the triangle represents the pin and the rectangle the socket. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Jan 18 '19 at 13:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ That certainly sounds logical, but I don't have any evidence to add that to the answer. \$\endgroup\$ – Cursorkeys Jan 19 '19 at 14:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think this would be it indeed. It sounds logical and there are a lot of these connectors in the wiring harness. I'm going with this answer! \$\endgroup\$ – Gimly161 Jan 19 '19 at 17:17
