What are Capacitor Codes used for

capacitor code1Capacitor codes are simply used for the sake of convenience. They provide a useful shorthand way of defining the capacitance and tolerance characteristics of a capacitor component right on the device, ensuring that those values can be determined whether the original documentation for an electronic device is available. They also make it remarkably convenient to repair electronic devices by replacing capacitors, as it’s easy enough to determine which capacitor is needed.
