What is a hop over

Hi with reference to to a poll here about hop overs - what are hop overs

Edit - typos (new phone)

Believe me. You don’t want to know.


A Hop is nothing more than a Graphic item showing a Schematic Wire hopping over other Wire’s. Similar to a Jumper Wire over Tracks/Traces on a PCB.

It’s simply a Graphic Clarification…

A graphic Obfuscation.

I expect that from someone who doesn’t like user videos (you).

In 1964 when I started Driving, we called Automobile’s:

Nonetheless, they were still Automobile’s

The only hop overs you should know:

I maintain they may have some limited use in simple diagrams meant for presentations to non technical people, but, that isn’t of much concern here for the most part.

If we totally eliminated the practice of 4 way junctions in one junction dot, the hopover might have a better chance of being eliminated. But I still see 4 way single dot junctions in material from LT and others. In that environment, the hopover can be a useful clarification. But I agree that we on this forum should not need it.

I see you’re a greengrocer apostrophe speller. There was once a sign that read Asparagu’s. :rofl:

I just knew resurrecting that thread would cause trouble.

We have an example of a very unfit line, presented by Black Coffee, where the line left its hop too late and landed too early, to now, where discussions involve Green’s groceries. :frowning_face:
