# 4, 5 and 6 Band Resistor Color Code Calculator

**Resistor Color Code calculator – calculate corresponding value of a given resistor color marking**

To use the resistor color code calculator click on the dropdown box starting from the left and select the corresponding color, black on the first marking is disabled by default. For the 4 band resistor calculator the third band is the multiplier and the fourth is the resistor tolerance. For the 5 band resistor calculator the 4th marking is the multiplier while the 5th marking is the tolerance, for 6 band resistor calculator the 4th marking is the multiplier, the 5th is the tolerance and the six marking is the temperature coefficient. For additional information on reading resistor color coding check out how to read resistor color code on this site. For the output value check out standard EIA Resistor value and standard value resistors.

**4 BAND RESISTOR COLOR CODE AND TOLERANCE CALCULATOR**

**6 BAND RESISTOR COLOR CODE AND TOLERANCE CALCULATOR**

The 6th band marking is the Temperature Coefficient in ppm/degreeC of a resistor which represent the amount of resistance value that will change with temperature
