Brief instruction on the use of the reversible resistor color code calculator.

    FAQs:
  1. What colors of 15 ohm resistor?
  2. What colors of 15 ohm 1% resistor?
  3. Which value corresponds to the Brown-Green-Black-Brown-Brown resistor color code?
  4. I need 5k resistor. It is the standard value? If not, what the nearest standard value?
  1. Question:   What colors of 15 ohm resistor?
    Answer:  Type value 15 in field "RESULT", select range "Ohm" in drop-down menu. The bands on the resistor image will be painted in matching colors.

  2. Question: Thanks, but I'm interested in the color code resistor 15 ohm 1% rather than 5% !!!
    Answer:  Well then, just add more and the tolerance!

  3. Question: Which is resistance value corresponds to the bands with colors Brown-Green-Black-Brown-Brown?
    Answer: Specify the number of color bands and select a color for each of them. Result will be displayed in "RESULT" field. If the color code consists of 5 or 6 bands, check whether reading the color code in the opposite direction - click button "Reverse"! So, in your case may be the resistance value as 1.5kOhm ±1% and 11Mohm ±1%. Rather, it is 1.5k ±1%, but better check by a multimeter.

  4. Question: I need 5k resistor. It is the standard value? If not, what the nearest standard value?
    Answer: Type value in "Result" field of resistor color code calculator, select range "kOhm". In your case (5kOhm), you will see the message "Oops! It is not standard EIA value: 500! (See table on the right)"? This means that the industry does not produce a constant resistors with this value.
