Disclosure to Promote the Right To Information

Whereas the Parliament of India has set out to provide a practical regime of right to
information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities,
in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority,
and whereas the attached publication of the Bureau of Indian Standards is of particular interest
to the public, particularly disadvantaged communities and those engaged in the pursuit of
education and knowledge, the attached public safety standard is made available to promote the
timely dissemination of this information in an accurate manner to the public.

This symbol indicates that a horizontal line drawn at a


right angle through a core symbol represents a core
winding, and it also gives the ielative directions of current and flux.
Note. - This symbol is not applicable for topographical
representation.

For drawing convenience, lines representing conductors
are often shown crossing core symbols even though
there is no winding on the magnetic circuit. Except in
topographical representation the use of the oblique
stroke is mandatory in all cases where a line through the
core symbol represents a winding.
