Whats the real question here? mInInOwA August 8, 2012 9:51:42 PM I would advise using a calliper rather than a ruler, but why would you possible need to measure them?

Standard diameters are in 2.5mm increments while standard heights are in 5mm increments which makes eyeballing with a ruler fairly error-free. Often, PCB layouts have enough clearance around capacitors to accommodate one size bump both ways, though it may be a very tight fit. @loki August 19, 2012 3:47:27 PM mInInOwA said:I would advise using a calliper rather than a ruler, but why would you possible need to measure them?
