    e suffix in resistor value

    hi

    even in some shematics they will represent 2.2K as 2K2. As some can misunderstand 2.2K as 22K.

    have a nice day

    with regards

    The letter "E" just stands for "ohms" ..

    56E is equal to 56Ω....

    What snoopy said is right. Resistors marked with E are Iskra product and E stays for Enot or in english Unit.

    Re: Resistor 56E ?

    Is it possible that the "E" suffix designates a tolerance? For example, 56Ω, 1%. Are other resistors on the same schematic always marked with the same suffix?

    No, no Iskra used to mark a tolerance in a classic way by using percentage sign.
