    No, you have an incomplete knowledge of the meaning of the word.

    I raise you a degree in physics and electronics against your apprenticeship

    Your confusion arises from the difference between something which IS a short circuit and something that has BECOME a short circuit through some type of failure

    To all intents & purposes the term " Short Circuit " is used in the context of a " Fault " That is how I & the majority of The general public take as the meaning.

    the fact that the actual term " short circuit " , has a meaning other than a fault is well ???? neither here nor there IMHO

    I used to know a "Vision's Technician" ??? turned out he was a window cleaner !!!

    Ball locks!, you obviously are not working in the field
    you can define a short circuit anyway you like

    but in the diagnostic and repair feild a short circuit will always be viewed as a fault condition
    and a circuit through a switch will be viewed as a closed circuit condition not a short

    Oh, don't you know? Having a degree means you know everything.

    Also means you are blind to common sense. You'd be surprised at how many degree/masters/Phd holders have a bizarre way at looking at things.

    I really don't care what "the general public" think, short circuit has a specific meaning, if you want to abuse it, that's not my problem. It's like the word "dry joint" which is universally misused to describe cracked joints

    we repair pcbs, thats what we do

    I have done - my definition is correct


    but in the diagnostic and repair feild a short circuit will always be viewed as a fault condition

    only by those who don't understand the meaning of the word

    and a circuit through a switch will be viewed as a closed circuit condition not a short

    no it doesn't, that phrase gives no indication of the health of the connection

    I certainly wouldn't want someone with your incomplete understanding anywhere near any appliance of mine

    and so when one of your colleagues tells you a semi conductor relay is "short circuited" you will pursume he means what exactly?


    and the phrase "short circuit" gives what indication of the health of the connection exactly?

    I'll not sleep now, worrying about your opinion :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    If you are going to be an argumentative little tool, at least have the decency to learn how to quote people properly.

    Don't need anything more my friend. You are quite capable of making yourself look like a prize plank. [​IMG]
