Reading mallory 150 yellows


Posted on Friday, June 03, 2005 - 02:18 am:   

what is the proper way to read mallory 150 yellows? many have 3 numbers. ex.: 1/10/100
i assume the last number is the voltage rating. is the middle number a multiplier for the first?

by the way, i did post this question in another thread, but thought it more appropriate here.

To restate my previous response in a more appropriate area:

I believe the first number is the value, the second number is tolerance and the third number is voltage.

In your example: 1uF, 10%, 100Vdc

Of course, this is without seeing the size of the cap to confirm that it is big enough to actually be a 1uF part!
