WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

(OP)
I need to put a stored energy warning on a drawing. The Boss wants an icon to make the warning stand out to the customer for sign-off. Does anyone know where I can find the proper icon for this, that follows ANSI drawing standards. I am using Inventor V7 SP1.
                                     Thanks,

RE: WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

The only thing I've ever seen or used is CAUTION!, followed by the note and enclosed in a bold lined or shadowed line box.

RE: WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

I agree with Jay. I searched and can not find anything for stored energy. Caution! would be your best bet.

RE: WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

I've seen symbols for electrostatic discharge warnings.  I found them in DOD-STD-100.  I don't have it in front of my right now to be more specific as to the warning, its symbol, or its application on drawings.  DOD-STD-100 is more or less dead and replaced with ASME standarads.  When I get to my copy of the standard, I'll see if I can find a current cross-reference.

For some pleasure reading, the Round Table recommends FAQ731-376

RE: WARNING ICON ON A DRAWING

The ESD symbol may work, but don't know if it is the same as stored energy. The ESD symbol probably should be on all electronic dwgs anyway.

Thanks, everyone! I did a search for ANSI Z535 (I think that's the one, it's early) and found a site that makes labels. Caution, warning, and danger were there and spelled out for there uses. I grabbed the bitmap, inserted it into the drawing as a custom symbol, and wrote a note explaining the hazard. Boss is happy. Cheers,
