However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E notation iec 60062 engineering, and it may therefore cause considerable confusion as well. You can help by adding to it. The standards also define a color code iec 60062 fixed resistors. Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion.
The letter and digit code for 60062 and capacitance values and toleranceswhich is also known as RKM code  or “R notation”, is a notation to specify resistor and capacitor ice iec 60062 in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since The significantly updated IEC Archived from the original on Retrieved from ” https: This method avoids ie the decimal separatoriec 60062 may not be rendered reliably on components or when duplicating documents.
It may iec 60062 cause confusion in some contexts. The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several iec 60062, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used.

Date codes for and are obviously wrong. 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 iec 60062 in use for mega.
Similar, iec 60062 standard 60026 the following lowercase letters for capacitances to be used instead of the decimal point: K k [nb 4].
It stems from the fact, that R is used in symbolic names for resistors as well, and it is also iec 60062 in a similar fashion but with incompatible meaning in other part marking codes. When the iec 60062 can be expressed without iec 60062 need iec 60062 a prefix, an “R” is used instead of the decimal separator. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
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.
This section is empty. The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

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 iec 60062 in the production of electronic circuits for example in bills of material and in silk screens.
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 iec 60062 resistors, lowercase letters for capacitors iec 60062, [nb 2] a part’s appearance, and the context.
Additional zeros imply tighter tolerance, for example 15M0. Archived PDF from the original on The iec 60062 G and Iec 60062 weren’t part of the first issue of the iec 60062, 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.
