K k [nb 4]. 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 silk screens. Archived PDF from the original on 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 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.

BS , IEC – Specification for marking codes for resistors and capacitors
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several exceptions, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used.
Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion. The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value. Date codes for and are obviously wrong.
The letters p and n weren’t part of the first issue 660062 the standard, but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.
This page was last edited on 21 Augustat The significantly updated IEC 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 eic part marking codes. It may therefore cause confusion in some contexts.
For brevity, the notation omits to always specify the unit ohm 660062 farad explicitly and instead relies on implicit knowledge raised from the usage of specific letters either eic 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.
The standards also define a color code for fixed resistors. When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is used instead of the decimal separator. Additional zeros imply tighter tolerance, for example 15M0.
BS 1852:1975, IEC 60062:1974
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.
This method avoids overlooking the decimal separatorwhich may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents. Retrieved from ” https: 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.
