**How do you decode a capacitor code?**

How to Decode Capacitor Number Marking

- Step 1 – First Two Digits of Capacitor Number. The three digit code of the capacitor is 681J.
- Step 2 – Third Digit of Capacitor Number. The third digit says how many zeros we have to add in it to get the actual capacitance value.
- Step 3 – Fourth letter of Capacitor Number.

**What is J and K in capacitor?**

Capacitor Voltage Reference Type J – Dipped Tantalum Capacitors. Type K – Mica Capacitors.

### What is the difference between Mylar and ceramic capacitor?

Mylar Capacitors a.k.a polyester capacitors (PET) are special type of capacitors with some unique features compared with ceramic and electrolytic capacitor. They can withstand high voltages in a relatively small package and provides high resistance against moisture.

**How do I identify a capacitor?**

Ceramic types of capacitors generally have a 3-digit code printed onto their body to identify their capacitance value in pico-farads. Generally the first two digits indicate the capacitors value and the third digit indicates the number of zero’s to be added.

**What do the markings on a capacitor mean?**

Many capacitor manufacturers use a shorthand notation to indicate capacitance on small caps.\nIf you have a capacitor that has nothing other than a three-digit number printed on it, the third digit represents the number of zeros to add to the end of the first two digits. The resulting number is the capacitance in pF.

## What are the markings on a capacitor?

The value of the capacitor is denoted in picofarads for ceramic, film, and tantalum capacitors, but for aluminium electrolytic capacitors the value is denoted in microfarads. For small values the letter R is used to denote a decimal point, e.g. 0R5 is 0.5, 1R0 is 1.0 and 2R2 is 2.2, etc..
