Anyone can match colors when replacing color-coded components. But what about matching values to colors from an assembly drawing?

Electronics assemblers should have color-code skills… to make sure they are using the right component in the right place. Now there’s a simple way to learn how to read color codes — on resistors, capacitors and inductors.

DVD-164C teaches how to decode significant value, multiplier and tolerance bands for four-band resistors, capacitors and inductors; five-band resistors; temperature coefficient for six-band resistors; and color dots or stripes on surface mount inductors. Also explains guidelines for component substitutions.

Includes leader's guide, review excercises, color 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: 29 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.
