Generator for IEC60063 Preferred Values

Project description

This python module provides a generator for the IEC60063 Preferred Values. These are the ‘standard’ values for varius types of passive electrical components, such as resistors, capacitors, etc.

For more information about IEC60063, take a look at this Wikipedia page.

Usage Example

>>> import iec60063
>>> values = iec60063.gen_vals('resistor', 'E12', '1E', '10K')
>>> for value in values:
>>>     print value


Though this module provides the preferred values, there is no guarantee that the values generated will actually be something that you can find in a market near you. If this is something you intend to use to calculate values for components that you will physically need, you should first try to determine what ranges of values are easily available from wherever you normally obtain them for each series and component type.


This package can be installed from pypi using pip:

$ pip install iec60063

Or using easy_install:

$ easy_install iec60063
