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. The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value.

The significantly updated IEC 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 to specify resistor and capacitor values defined in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since This is not only for brevity for example when printed on the part or PCBbut also to circumvent the problem that decimal separators tend to “disappear” when photocopying printed circuit diagrams.

Views Read Edit View history. When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is used instead of the decimal separator. R E [nb 3].


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. For example, 1R2 indicates 1. Additional zeros imply tighter tolerance, for example 15M0. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E notation in engineering, and 600662 may therefore cause considerable confusion as well.

K k [nb 4].

Oh no, there’s been an error

Date codes for and are ice wrong. It may therefore cause confusion in some contexts. 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.

This method avoids overlooking the decimal separatorwhich may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents. The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several 600662, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used.

Originally meant also as part marking code iev, this 600062 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. Similar, the standard prescribes the following lowercase letters for capacitances to be used instead of the decimal point: Retrieved from ” https: CS1 German-language sources de Interlanguage link template link number CS1 Russian-language sources ru Articles to be expanded from December All articles to be expanded Articles with empty sections from December All articles with empty sections Articles using 6062 message boxes.


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 from the original on Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion. 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.
