Five Band Resistor Color Code-What Does The Last Band Of White Color Represent?

Written by Jestine Yong

In electronic repair, most ofrepparttar time i came across five band resistor color code. The purpose of usingrepparttar 145803 five colour band resistor in a circuit is that it provide a more accurate value compare torepparttar 145804 four color band. For example in order to getrepparttar 145805 value of 22.6kohm, with four colors band resistor you will not be able to find it. The most you can get is 22k (red,red,orange and gold). If withrepparttar 145806 five color band you will be able to calculate it (red,red,blue,red,brown)the last color which is brown represent 1% tolerance. You may go to google search engine and type resistor color code, resistor color coding, resistor color code calculator, or resistor color code chart to know more about how to calculate a five band resistor values.

If you open up an analog multimeter you will understand what i mean. Most ofrepparttar 145807 resistor circuit insiderepparttar 145808 multimeter are using five color band. Why? Becauserepparttar 145809 reading that you get whenever you measure current, voltage or ohm,repparttar 145810 panel will showrepparttar 145811 nearest value. For instance, if you measure a 9v batteryrepparttar 145812 needle will point to may be 8.9v,9v,or 9.1 volt. If that particular multimeter was designed using four color band resistorrepparttar 145813 result that it gets may be 8.5v,9.5v or even 10 volt. In other wordsrepparttar 145814 use of five color band resistor is to make a circuit more precise and outputrepparttar 145815 desire result as whatrepparttar 145816 engineers want it to be.

Digital Picture Frames: The Wave of The Future

What is a digital picture frame? Think of a digital picture frame as a slide show of sorts for your picture. Like a flat screen TV,repparttar digital picture frame is sleek, elegant and classy. You can buy a stand-alone reader that produces images from a memory card, or one connected to a phone line. The latter allows you to receive pictures sent from computers aroundrepparttar 145631 world.

Let's talk more about this modern innovation and how it may impact your life.

How A Digital Picture Frame Works

A digital picture frame, much like an ordinary picture frame, displays pictures. The difference however is this... a digital picture frame has an LCD screen. This screen can display many photos like a slideshow. Most digital picture frames connect torepparttar 145632 Internet or a computer using a phone line. They then download pictures and display them.

Unlike a traditional frame most digital units do not have a glass barrier separatingrepparttar 145633 picture fromrepparttar 145634 user. Digital picture frames usually are aboutrepparttar 145635 same size as a traditional photo frame. Some digital picture frames contain a memory card to store photos. If you use this type of frame you don't need to connect to a computer to display images.

Some digital picture frames work by having you upload your pictures to a Website. Thenrepparttar 145636 digital frame connects torepparttar 145637 sight and downloads your photos. New pictures show up on their own as this happens. You can adjustrepparttar 145638 setting on your digital picture frame to produce a slideshow of pictures. Most frames allow you to adjustrepparttar 145639 speed with which images change.

If you do log into a Web site you may need to buy a subscription service. These are generally cheap, ranging about $10 a month and up. The price is worth it. Some sites will allow you to upload pictures and news, sports and other information to your digital frame. You can even order prints online through companies like Kodak.

Digital Picture Frame Choices

You can select many features for your digital picture frame. Here are some considerations when buying:

  • Number of Pictures - Some frames allow you to display an unlimited number of pictures. Others have an internal memory that allows a defined number of images to be stored and displayed. If you want to store many pictures, you might consider a digital frame with a removable memory card. This will allow you to store more images.
  • Portability - Some frames are smaller than others. You may buy a digital picture frame that plugs into a wall, or one that runs off batteries. Obviously a battery powered digital frame is more portable than a plug-in.
  • Resolution and Size - The larger your digital picture frame,repparttar 145640 more expensive. Many display images 5x7 or smaller.
