Working with the E-series of preferred numbers used for electronic components, such as resistors and capacitors

## Project description

The E-series is a system of preferred numbers used with electronic components such as resistors and capacitors. For example, the E6 series contains six values (10, 15, 22, 33, 47, 68) which cover a one-order of magnitude range of values (one decade) from 10 to 99. These base values repeat again to cover the next decade from 100 to 999, as 100, 220, 330, 470, and 680.

This eseries library is useful for selecting values from the standard E3, E6, E12, E24, E48, E96 and E192 decades.

## Installation

The eseries package is available on the Python Package Index (PyPI):

The package supports Python 3 only. To install:

$pip install eseries ## Python Interface For full help: >>> import eseries >>> help(eseries) In the meantime, here are some highlights. To find the nearest E24 value to 319 use: >>> from eseries import find_nearest, E24 >>> find_nearest(E24, 319) 330 To find the next value greater-than or equal-to 184 in the E96 series use: >>> from eseries import find_greater_than_or_equal, E96 >>> find_greater_than_or_equal(E96, 184) 187 To find a few values around the specified value, use: >>> from eseries import find_nearest_few, E24 >>> find_nearest_few(E24, 5000) (4700, 5100, 5600) ## Command-Line Interface There’s also a handy command-line interface. Run eseries --help to see a list of commands: $ eseries --help
eseries

Usage: eseries [options] <command> [<args> ...]

Options:
-h --help     Show this screen.
-v --verbose  Use verbose logging

Available commands:
ge
gt
help
le
lower-tolerance-limit
lt
nearby
nearest
range
series
tolerance
tolerance-limits
upper-tolerance-limit

See 'eseries help <command>' for help on specific commands.

To find a nearby value, use:

$eseries nearest E24 37726 39e3 If you prefer an SI exponent symbol, supply --symbol or -s: $ eseries nearest E24 37726 -s
39 k

To show values around the given value, use the nearby command:

$eseries nearby E48 52e6 -s 48.7 M 51.1 M 53.6 M To show the smallest value greater than or equal to the given value, use the ge command: $ eseries ge E48 52e3 -s
53.6 k

To show the upper and lower tolerance limits of a nominal value, use the tolerance-limits command:

$eseries tolerance-limits E48 35 34.3 35.7 To show all values in an inclusive range, use the range command: $ eseries range E6 74e-9 34e-6 --symbol

## Testing

Testing is performed for all supported versions using tox. You’ll need to ensure that the required Python versions are available in your environment. For example, if you’re using pyenv, do:

$pyenv local 2.7.18 3.6.12 3.7.9 3.8.1 3.9.1 before running tox: $ tox

## Deployment to PyPI

$pip install -e ".[dev]"$ bumpversion patch
$python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel$ twine upload --config-file <path>/credentials.pypirc dist/*
\$ git push origin
