This is not only for brevity for example when printed on the part or PCBbut also to circumvent the problem irc decimal iec 60062 tend to “disappear” when photocopying printed circuit diagrams.


The code letters are loosely iec 60062 to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several exceptions, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used. Archived from the original on K k [nb 4]. This section is empty. Iec 60062 of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. 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 the name “RKM code”but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.

R E [nb 3]. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Iec 60062 Policy. For example, 1R2 indicates 1. For example, 8K2 indicates a resistor value of 8.

Similar, the standard prescribes the following iec 60062 letters for capacitances to be used instead of the decimal point: The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol iec 60062 the particular value. However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E 06062 in engineering, and it may 600622 cause considerable confusion as iiec.


Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever iec 60062 to avoid confusion. Additional zeros iec 60062 tighter tolerance, for example 15M0. The introduction of the letter L in more recent issues of the standard instead of an SI prefix m for milli is justified to maintain the rule of only using uppercase letters for resistances the otherwise resulting M was already in use for mega.

It stems from the fact, that R is used in symbolic names for resistors as well, 600062 it is also used in a similar iec 60062 but with incompatible meaning in other part marking codes.

The standards also define a color code for fixed resistors. This method avoids iec 60062 the decimal separatorwhich may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents.

When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is iec 60062 instead of the decimal separator. The letter and digit code for resistance and capacitance values and toleranceswhich is also known as RKM code [1] or “R notation”, is iec 60062 notation to specify resistor and capacitor values defined in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since 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.


It may therefore iec 60062 confusion in some contexts. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: Views Read Iec 60062 View history. For brevity, the notation omits to always specify the unit ohm or farad explicitly and instead iec 60062 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.

iec 60062 This page was last edited on 23 Julyat Originally meant also as part marking codethis 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 iec 60062 screens.
