4.1 General rules
Add, after the last paragraph, the following new Note:

NOTE In addition to these general coding methods, special codes with reduced length have been established in

the market:
– a special three-character code system for resistors, see Annex A;
– a special two-character code system for capacitors, see Annex B.
Add, after Annex A and before Annex X, the following new Annex B.

Annex B
Special two-character code system for capacitors

A special two-character code system exists for the marking of capacitance values with two

significant numbers with only two characters in total.

This code system is particularly suited for situations where the marking of capacitance values

of the E6, E12 or E24 series is desired, but the surface area available for marking does not

permit the printing of three or more characters in a sufficiently readable size, as it is required

to mark the capacitor with a regular three-character code as given in 4.3.2 of this document,

plus, possibly, other required codes.
The special two-character code is composed of:

– a code letter for the significant numbers of the capacitance value, as given in Table B.1,

directly succeeded by
– a code number for the multiplier, as given in Table B.2,
without any space in between.
Table B.1 – Coding of the significant numbers of the E24
