R E [nb 3]. This method avoids overlooking the decimal separatorwhich may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents. The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and ief it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value. Archived from the original on 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.
You can help by adding to it. This page was last edited on 21 Augustat 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 ie part marking codes.
Oh no, there’s been an error
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. K k [nb 4]. For example, 1R2 indicates 1. Views Read Edit View history.

However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E iecc in engineering, and it may therefore cause considerable confusion as well. The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several exceptions, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used.
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.
Archived PDF from the original on The standards also define a color code for fixed resistors. The RKM code also referred to as “letter and digit code for resistance and capacitance values and tolerances” or “R notation”, is a notation to specify resistor and capacitor values irc in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since It may therefore cause confusion in some contexts. Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion.

When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is used instead of the decimal separator.
The letters p and n weren’t part ie the first issue of the standard, but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.
List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. Additional zeros imply tighter tolerance, for example 15M0. For example, 8K2 indicates a resistor value of 8. Date codes for and are obviously wrong. Retrieved from ” https: This is not only for brevity for lec when printed on the part or PCBbut also to circumvent the problem that decimal separators tend to “disappear” when photocopying printed circuit diagrams.
