R E [nb 3].

Electronic color code – Wikiwand

Archived PDF from the original on The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding Isc prefixbut there are several exceptions, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E notation in engineering, and it may therefore cause considerable confusion as well. The letters G and T weren’t part of the first issue of the standard, which pre-dates the introduction of the SI system hence ifc name “RKM code”but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.

Originally meant also as part marking codeuec shorthand notation is widely used in electrical engineering to denote the values of resistors and capacitors in circuit diagrams and in the production of electronic circuits for example in bills of material and in silk screens.

For example, 1R2 indicates 1. Date codes for and are obviously wrong. Similar, the standard prescribes the following lowercase letters for capacitances to be used instead of the decimal point: This method avoids overlooking the decimal separatorwhich may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents.

It stems from the fact, that R is used in symbolic names for resistors as well, and it is also used in a similar fashion but with incompatible meaning in other part marking codes.

For example, 8K2 indicates a resistor value of 8. Views Read Edit View history. Archived from the original on Retrieved from ” https: Additional zeros imply tighter tolerance, for example 15M0. The introduction of the letter L in more recent issues of irc standard instead of an SI prefix m for milli is justified 6006 maintain the rule of only using uppercase letters for resistances the otherwise resulting M was already in use for mega.

You can help by adding to it. The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value. The standards also define a color code for fixed resistors.

Oh no, there’s been an error

K k [nb 4]. This is not only for brevity for example when printed on the part or PCBbut 6006 to circumvent the problem that decimal separators tend to “disappear” when photocopying printed circuit diagrams. This section is empty. For brevity, the notation omits to always specify the unit ohm or farad explicitly and instead relies on implicit knowledge raised from the usage of specific letters either only for resistors or for capacitors, [nb 1] the case used uppercase letters are typically used for resistors, lowercase letters for capacitors[nb 2] a part’s appearance, and the context.

When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is used instead of iev decimal separator. Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion. The letters p and n weren’t part of the first issue of the standard, but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.

The RKM code[1] also referred to as “letter and digit code for resistance and capacitance values and tolerances” or “R notation”, is a notation oec specify resistor and capacitor values defined in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since
