USBmicro' Resistor Drawer Labels


I don't have any difficulty remembering the resistor color code. Many people do, however. While working for a company about a dozen years ago I had planned to create some color labels for the resistor drawers in the company proto lab. The lab drawers were a random mess of values, and it would require a big effort to clean up the chaos. I left the task for a rainy day.

Not long after, however, I decided to move my collection of resistors from a multi-bin container to a set of drawers. I created the color labels that I had intended to use for work and labeled the drawers. That was about 10 years ago. I still have the drawers, but the labels have, after a decade, faded. So I decided to relabel the drawers. The color labels make it really easy to confirm resistor values when putting components into the drawers.

I created several .pdf files of the "E24" series and they are here for anyone who may find them useful.

Resistors from 1.0 ohm to 9.1 ohm

Resistors from 10 ohm to 91 ohm

Resistors from 100 ohm to 910 ohm

Resistors from 1.0 kohm to 9.1 kohm

Resistors from 10 kohm to 91 kohm

Resistors from 100 kohm to 910 kohm

Resistors from 1.0 Mohm to 10 Mohm

This is a picture of eight new labels, and four of the old, faded labels.

The .pdf drawer files are the "E24" series, for the "E12" series, just skip the labels not needed. For "E48" you are on your own...
