## What value is a 471 capacitor?

Electronics Components: How to Read Capacitance Values on a Capacitor

Marking Capacitance (pF) Capacitance (ìF)
471 470 pF 0.00047 ìF
102 1,000 pF 0.001 ìF
222 2,200 pF 0.0022 ìF
472 4,700 pF 0.0047 ìF

## How do you decode a capacitor?

Read the capacitance of smaller bodied capacitors as two or three numbers.

1. Read two digit numbers as being in picoFarads (pF).
2. Read three digit numbers as a base capacitance value in picoFarads and a multiplier.
3. Use a third digit of 0 through 5 to place the corresponding number of 0s behind the base value.

What does 40 100 21 mean on a capacitor?

The 21 indicates the number of days which the capacitor can withstand within specified limits if exposed to a relative humidity of 95 % and a temperature of + 40 °C.

### What does the 3 digit capacitor code 471 mean?

The 3 digit capacitor code 471 stands for 470 pF, in words: four hundred and seventy picofarads capacitance. This is a simple online calculator for color band resistor marking, inductor color band marking, ceramic or tantalum capacitor 3 digit marking and SMD resistor 3-digit, 4-digit, 10%, 5%, 2% and EIA-96 (E96) 1% tolerance code marking.

### What is the code for a ceramic capacitor?

Encoding for Ceramic Capacitors Ceramic capacitors encoding consists 1-3 digits. If the capacitor code consist only 1 or 2 digits, it is simply their capacitance value in PicoFarads (pF). For example if a ceramic capacitor has a code ‘5’ and other has ‘47’, their respective capacitance values are 5 pF and 47 pF.

What is the capacitor code in picofarads?

If the capacitor code consist only 1 or 2 digits, it is simply their capacitance value in PicoFarads (pF). For example if a ceramic capacitor has a code ‘5’ and other has ‘47’, their respective capacitance values are 5 pF and 47 pF.

## How can I read the number 47 on a capacitor?

If the surface of the body is large enough, the value will be printed directly on the capacitor. For example, 47 uF indicates 47 microFarads. Read the capacitance of smaller bodied capacitors as two or three numbers. The designators uF or pF will not appear due to the small size of the capacitor body.
