In some old radio receivers, you’ll find air-core inductors wound around small waxed cardboard cylinders resembling short lengths of drinking straw. Some hobbyists even use waxed wooden dowels to support “air-core” coils! Figure 3-16 shows the schematic symbol for a tapped air-core inductor; in this case, the coil has two tap points along its length. Fig. 3-16. Schematic symbol for an air-core inductor with two taps. 36 Component symbols A B Fig. 3-17. Schematic symbols for a variable air-core inductor.
This old-fashioned device, also called a hand key or a straight key, makes or breaks a circuit for the purpose of sending Morse code manually. It’s an SPST switch with a lever and a spring, causing the device to return to the off position when the operator lets go of the lever. Figure 3-31 shows its schematic symbol. Fig. 3-30. Schematic symbol for two rotary switches ganged together. This one has two poles and 10 throws (2P10T). Conductors and cables 43 Fig. 3-31.

The electronic circuit, therefore, “sees” the component as a fixed resistor. However, when a variable resistor is required for the proper functioning of a specific circuit, it is necessary to indicate to any person who might build it from a schematic drawing that the resistor is actually a variable type. Figure 3-4 shows the schematic symbol for a variable resistor with two leads. Other types of variable resistors exist, and they have three leads (two end leads and a tap). Figure 3-5 shows two examples of schematic symbols for a three-terminal variable resistor, known as a potentiometer or a rheostat depending on the method of construction.
