E series of preferred numbers – Wikipedia
The E3 series is defined as a series of the numbers 1. As transistor radio production migrated towards Japan during the s, it was critical for the electronic industry to have international standards.
6063, the post—World War II baby boom and the invention of the transistor kicked off demand for consumer electronics goods during the s. In the early 20th centurycapacitor previously called condenser   and resistor   value increments were different than today.

It consists of the E3E6E12E24E48E96 and E series, where the number after kec ‘E’ designates the quantity of value “steps” in each series. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
This allows easier purchasing migration between different tolerance parts. Currently, most electrolytic capacitors are manufactured with values in the E6 or E12 series, thus E3 series is likely obsolete.

This page was last edited on 1 Novemberat Wikimedia Commons has media related to E12 values. Over time, components evolved towards common values, then based on some of these existing conventions, the International Electrotechnical Commission IEC began work on an international standard in Retrieved from ” https: Archived from the original iev Other types of electrical components are either specified by the Renard series for example fuses or are defined in relevant product standards for example IEC for wires.
If a manufacturer sold resistors with E3 series values in 600663 range of 1 ohm to 10 megohms, ic the available resistance values would be: The two main differences between each major group is the number of significant digits 2 digits for E3 to E24, 3 digits for E48 to E and different rounding rules.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It should be noted that some values in the E24 series don’t exist in E48 to E series.
Also, the E series is used for 0.
