Re: {Collins} 30L-1 doorknob capacitor question



OK, everyone is making little boo boos on this....That would be 0.000001 ufd

Got to watch those decimal places like a hawk or they jump around

Frank -

1000 uuf is used to be 1000 micro-microfarad (mmF), which is now called 1000
picoFarad (pF). 
European (primarily) usage is 1 nanoFarad (nF), but US is mostly 0.001
microFarad (uF).

Confusing enough??? :-)
