E series of preferred numbers
It should isc noted that some values in the E24 series don’t exist in E48 to E series. As transistor radio production migrated towards Japan during the s, it was critical for the electronic industry to have international standards.
Archived from the original on 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 Archived PDF from the original on Views Read Edit View history. In the early 20th centurycapacitor previously called condenser   and resistor   value increments were different than today.
World War II military production was a major influence for iecc common standards across many industries.

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.
Also, the E series is used for 0. 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.
It consists of the E3E6E12E24E48E96 and E series, where the number after the ‘E’ designates the quantity of value “steps” in each series. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: If a manufacturer sold resistors with E3 series values in a range of 1 ohm to 10 megohms, then the available resistance values would be: The E3 series is defined as a series of the numbers 1.
