CapCoder gives the capacitance in microfarads, nanofarads and picofarads and tolerance of any capacitor code entered into its input section. Example : 104J. This app uses numeric spin-buttons and a combo box so that no typing is required for data entry
This small app is for easily determining the capacitance value of any capacitors that you may have on hand by entering the code written on the cap surface.
Using this program:
To “read” a capacitor code, enter the code using the spin buttons and push the Calculate button. The entered code plus the capacitance in microfarads, picofarads and nanofarads
will be displayed.
Use the first two spin buttons to set the initial two code digits from your capacitor. If there are three digits then enter the third digit in the third spin button control.
example: 10 pF = 1 0 0 , 100 pF = 1 0 1 etc.
The tolerance value is set using the drop-down combobox and is displayed automatically. Tolerances that specify +/- pF values are generally used on capacitors that are 10 pF or less.
This app should do all practical standard value capacitors.
