Resistor Color Codes

RESISTOR COLOR CODES


Resistor Color Codes

    The colors brown, red, green, blue, and violet are used as tolerance codes on 5-band resistors only. All 5-band resistors use a colored tolerance band. The blank (20%) "band" is only used with the "4-band" code (3 colored bands + a blank "band").

Resistor Color Codes Tolerance


Example 1


Resistor Color Codes Example

A resistor colored Yellow-Violet-Orange-Gold would be 47 k with a tolerance of +/- 5%

Example 2


Resistor Color Codes Example 02

A resistor colored Green-Red-Gold-Silver would be 5.2 with a tolerance of +/- 10%.
