Orange Drop Capacitor Codes

Need to determine the value of an Orange Drop cap? Use the code on the capacitor (below the manufacturer's part number) to determine its value, or you can calculate the value below.

Manufacturer Coding:

224 = capacitance in pico farads - first two digits are significant digits, third digit is the number of digits that follow (ie: 22 + 0000 = 220,000pF = 0.22µF in this case)
K = tolerance, F = ±1%, J = ±5%, K = ±10%, etc.
600V = voltage rating (600 volts in this case)
9644 = date code (44th week of 1996 in this case)

Please enter the code found on your capacitor in the forms below.
