Electronics Capacitor Tolerance Code
Part of the Electronics For Dummies Cheat Sheet
In electronic circuits, the tolerance of capacitors can be determined by a code that appears on the casing. The code is a letter that often follows a three-digit number (such as 130Z). The following table outlines tolerance values for some common capacitors.
|B||± 0.1 pF|
|C||± 0.25 pF|
|D||± 0.5 pF|
