Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Preferred number series for resistors and capacitors

This International Standard provides series of preferred values for the resistance of resistors
and for the capacitance of capacitors.
The definition of such series with a defined numeric resolution is a basic prerequisite for the
marking and coding of capacitors and resistors with their respective capacitance or resistance
values as described in IEC 60062.
NOTE The number series defined in this standard are based on progressive ratios of r 10 , with r = 3 · 2i, and i
being a whole number in the range of 0 to 6, hence e.g. of 1210 .
This system of progressive ratios had been established prior to the 1952 release of the first edition of this
standard1 as a consequence of the standardisation of tolerances at ±5 %, ±10 % and ±20 % and the related
commercial practice. An adoption of the ISO practice, based on a 10 10 system, was never considered achievable.

Vorzugsreihen für die Nennwerte von Widerständen und Kondensatoren

Séries de valeurs normales pour résistances et condensateurs

L'IEC 60063:2015 fournit des séries de valeurs préférentielles pour des résistances et des condensateurs. La définition de telles séries avec une résolution numérique définie est une nécessité préalable de base pour le marquage et le codage de résistances et de condensateurs avec leurs valeurs de résistance et de capacité respectives comme cela est décrit dans l'IEC 60062. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente:
- révision des informations sur la relation entre une série E et la tolérance sur la valeur de la résistance ou de la capacité d'un composant;
- introduction de conseils sur une déduction possible du marquage d'un composant d'une série E associée et d'une tolérance associée;
- révision éditoriale complète.

Pritrjeni kondenzatorji za uporabo v elektronski opremi - Vrste standardnih števil za upore in kondenzatorje

Ta mednarodni standard podaja vrste standardnih vrednosti za upornost uporov in kapacitivnost kondenzatorjev.
Opredelitev take vrste z določeno numerično rešitvijo je osnovni predpogoj za označevanje in kodiranje kondenzatorjev in uporov z njihovimi vrednostmi kapacitivnosti in upornosti, kot je določeno v standardu IEC 60062.
OPOMBA Vrste števil, opredeljene v tem standardu, so osnovane na progresivnih razmerjih r 10, npr. 1210, ker je r = 3 · 2i, pri čemer je i celo število v med 0 in 6.
Ta sistem progresivnih razmerij je bil uveden pred objavo prve različice tega standarda leta 1952 kot posledica standardizacije toleranc pri ±5 %, ±10 % in ±20 % in s tem povezane komercialne prakse. Sprejetje prakse ISO, osnovane na sistemu 10 10, je bilo smatrano za nedosegljivo.

FOREWORD 1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations. 2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all interested IEC National Committees.
3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any misinterpretation by any end user. 4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter. 5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any services carried out by independent certification bodies. 6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication. 7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publications.
8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is indispensable for the correct application of this publication. 9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identi
