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

no, it does mean that I have a knowledge of such definitions, not the lazy misuse of such words

Err, how do you work that out, it seems to be fitters that are lacking common sense here nd resorting to brain dead dogma

Err .. whats your point?

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

to have GONE short circuit would be a faulty relay

Semiconductor relays are basically optocouplers where a short circuit on the output would be a fault condition

it doesn't change the definition of short circuit. for example, if you measure the resistance of a piece of (normal) wire, you would expect to see a short circuit between the two ends. You would also say that there is continuity between the ends, but that doesn't detract from the fact that it is a short circuit and, believe it or not, NOT a fault condition

no indication whatsoever other than that there is no resistance between the two points

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.
