 ElectricMotorElectricMotor is the subclass of Engines that produce mechanical power from electricity.
 ElectricSpeakerDeviceA combination SpeakerDevice and ElectricDevice.
 ElectrifiedRailwayCarElectrifiedRailwayCar is the subclass of railway cars that are powered by electricity, which is provided to the car through an overhead link or electrified third rail.
 ElectromagnetA Magnet that is created by sending Electricity through coils of Wire that are wound around a ferromagnetic core.
 FabricIronAn iron is a small appliance used in %&Ironing to remove wrinkles from %&Fabric.
 FaxMachineA FaxMachine is a TelephonyDevice that scans a paper page and transmits a coded image of the page over a TelephoneSystem to a receiving FaxMachine, which decodes the coded and image and prints a replica of the original. A typical FaxMachine is made up of a scanner, a printer, a modem, and a control panel with some sort of status display.
 HairDryerHairDryer is a type of DryingDevice used specifically for Drying Hair
 InductorElementA ThroughVariableAccumulator from electrical energy domain.
 MicrophoneA CommunicationDevice that converts sound into electrical energy.
 MicrowaveMicrowave is an ElectricDevice that heats food by passing an electromagnetic wave through it
 PhotocopierAn ElectricDevice designed for Making a two dimensional representation of an Object or a copy of a TwoDimensionalObject. Note that it is not necessarily used for Copying because it doesn't preserve all the Attributes of the original.
 RadarAn ElectricDevice that emits and receives microwave radiation for the purpose of locating and tracking distant objects.
 ReceiverDeviceAn ElectricDevice that is capable of receiving and decoding RadioEmissions, e.g. Radios and Televisions.
 RefrigeratorThe intersection of Containers and ElectricDevices in which the temperature is reduced from that of the outside air by a Cooling process.
