Standard Resistor Closest Value Calculator

Standard Resistor Closest Value Calculator

It is too difficult to find the exact value of resistors that you have calculated for making electronics project and circuits etc as here is an example of such situation that “how to calculate the value of Resistor for different LED’s Circuits” or How to calculate the exact value of burnt resistor and find the standard value of SMD resistors. Generally, Resistors come in standard values such as E6, E12, E24, E48, E96, and E192. If you are not able to find the exact value of resistor that you have calculated for your circuit, then you have to select the next coming value of resistor that you have calculated.

For Example, if the calculated value is 317.5Ω, then you would use the closest standard value, which is 330 Ω. if the closest value is not close enough, then you can make it by connecting resistors in series – parallel configuration.


Above is the “Classical” method to find the closest value of a resistor. Now, below is the Resistor Calculator in which you can easily find and calculate the closest standard resistor value for different Standard IE-Series Resistors.

Enter the value of resistor, and click on calculate. Result will display the closest value of different Slandered Resistors.

Enter your values:
Desired Value:
IEA Series: Closest Value (Ω): Error (%):
