Electronics assemblers should understand component number-codes… to make sure they are using the right component in the right place. Now there’s a simple way to learn how to read number codes — on both through hole and surface mount resistors, capacitors and inductors.

DVD-165C will greatly minimize the possibility of errors and costly rework at all points of the material handling cycle -- from receiving and incoming inspection to stockroom and kitting, setting up placement machines, QA, and rework & repair. The more detailed the training, the more valuable your employees become.

DVD-165C explains how to decipher the codes for 3- and 4-digit chip resistors; chip resistor decimals and symbols; numbered resistors with tolerance letter codes; E96 series, 0603 resistors; 3-digit capacitors; 2-digit alphanumeric chip capacitors; 3-digit inductors; and capacitor and inductor decimals. In addition, the general guidelines for component substitutions are presented.

Includes leader's guide, review excercises, number code charts (required for practic questions and final exam), and IPC Training Certification* Certificates for students who pass the final examination. With optional English subtitles for hearing-impaired and ESL students. Time: 40 minutes.

Use our Free Paper-Based Testing with reuseable PDF certificates of completion for ISO “verification of training,” or take advantage of our Free Online Testing so you no longer have to grade tests or generate certificates by hand. (Both options are for unlimited students with no expiration.)

**** To host IPC training programs on your own PC, corporate network/intranet, or Learning Management System (LMS), please see our automated, computer-based Online Video Training (OVT) format. (Equivalent OVT program is listed under "Related Products," below.) Or, you may access the entire video training library, as well as automated testing programs, via the IPC website, using our Online Training Library (OTL) format. Site and Global licenses are available for both options.****

*Includes Training Certification.
