1 Appendix SE Fixed Resistors and Capacitors SE.1 Fixed Resistor Codes and Types (Codes based on BS/EN/IEC 60062 Marking codes for resistors and capacitors ) Color Code. Table SE.1.1 shows the color code for indicating resistance values to 2 and 3 significant figures, as well as tolerances and, if needed, temperature coefficient. The minimum number of bands is 3 and would apply to a ± 20% tolerance resistor, where the first band is the first figure, the second band is the second figure, and the third band is the power of ten multiplier. When resistors are specified to 3 significant figures, they must have a tolerance of ± 1% or better. When 5 or 6 color
