Capacitors
When working with electronics, one of the more daunting and tedious – yet
necessary – tasks is figuring out how to decipher capacitor codes. There are many
different types of capacitors, but typically most do not have color coding like
resistors. Some capacitors will have their capacitance and voltage ratings printed
directly on the component, but some may have a three- or four-digit code. Here’s a
clear explanation of what these codes mean and how to read them.
Electrolytic Capacitor
Tantalum Capacitor
Monolithic Capacitor
These polarity-sensitive capacitors
are the easiest to decipher because
their value and maximum voltage
ratings are listed directly on the metal
component "can". The negative side () is usually clearly marked with the
negative side being the shorter lead
and the positive side (+) being the
longer lead.
These brightly colored "gumdrop"
capacitors are polarity-sensitive,
where the positive lead (+) is longer
than the negative (-). Tantalum
capacitors usually have the
capacitance value, maximum voltage
rating and polarity printed right on the
component.
These non-polar capacitors have
equal length leads that can be
installed in either direction and come
in many colors. The chart illustrates
how to determine their value using the
three-number and letter code found
on most monolithic capacitors.
