Hi there,

I would like to buy an E24 (5%)1206 or 0805 Resistor collection in plastic small cases. I would also like to buy a similar collection of multylayer capacitors.

Do you have any idea where I could find these collections and how much euros they cost?

Thanks.

Michael.

Farnell stock SM Resistor and Capacitor kits.
It looks like Darlas Electronic Applications SA handles Farnell in Greece.

In lots of 10, I find the 1% chip resistors are almost as cheap as the 5%. But when it comes to kits, it's a different story. If I could buy a 1% kit that only contained 5% values I would do it, but the 1% Digikey kits contain all the 1% values.

I suppose there are 5 times as many 1% values as 5% values so to buy a 1% kit that spans from 1 ohm to 1 megohm would cost a king's ransom on Digikey.

The logical thing for me to do is to buy a 5% kit, but I like the idea that I can buy 1% resistors for little more than 5%, so I just buy selected values of 1% in lots of 10 or more each.

Here's the box I bought:

They've also got caps

Why is it that some manufacturers print the values on the chips, and some don't? I try to buy the ones that are labelled.

That way, if I should accidentally dump that box of 3600 resistors on the floor, I could get my magnifying glass and sort them all out. :)

Here's a Chinese webshop named Sure Electronics Co., Ltd. that I found through eBay selling cheap assorted kits of 0603, 0805 or 1206 resistor- and capcitor values. Both in Boxes and as refill bags.
They kits does however not follow the E12 or E24 row from end to end, but have picked 50 common resistor values and 32 common capacitor values.

They also sell full SMD capacitor reels and things like AVR and PIC microcontrollers, development boards and programmers.

They also sell the loose "laboratory storage boxes" without compnents in 3 different sizes so you can build up your own assortments or add some extra boxes and values to an exsisting assortment.

what is the farnell ref for this ?
but the link form bingo600 "http://www.sample-kits.de/online... ... /index.php " is very good.
if you see the price per resistor and it is in a boxe.
not bad.

Just search Farnell's webshop for "multicomp resistor assortments" and you will find them.
Multicomp does however not offer resistor assortments, but Farnell offfer other brands.

Not this is not in a box, it's cut tape reels in a binder just like the Farnell Multicomp option mentioned:

The link I gave on the other hand has the components in small boxes.
I know Philips used to make small box assortments like this and they had a nice spring loaded lid for each box. But now Philips SMD resistors and SMD ceramic capacitors are named Phycomp and sold off to Yageo who still market them under the Phycomp brand along the line of Yageo named SMD componets. So I don't know if they still offer these, but they were quite expensive like these things often are.
http://www.yageo.com
Philips leaded passive componnets were sold off to Vishay and their semiconductor company has been turned into the independent company NXP.

Another option is SMkits from the US: http://smkits.com

Comes in a box instead of a binder, just like you asked for.
They sell both E-24 and E-96 SMD resistor, capacitor and inductor kits in sizes 0402, 0603, 0805 and 1206 (1008 instead of 1206 for inductors).

1% SMD Resistor Kits

Resistor 0603-481-100
This kit is built into 4 Super Enclosures. It has all the 481 E96 values + additional 28 values, from 1 Ohm to 10 Ohm and 1M to 10M + one 0 Ohm. It is best suited for professional research and development work, with all value resistors available for exploration. Obtaining any value of resistors is fast and easy, it saves times and allows you to concentrate on the experiments, no distractions to lower your efficiency or stop your valuable brain stream. Having 100 PCs per value make the kit last for a reasonable long time.

Resistor 0603-126-100
This kit is built 1 Super Enclosure. It has all the E24 values and is best suited for professional design and development work, with the most frequently used value resistors available for exploration. Obtaining any value of resistors is fast and easy, it saves times and allows you to concentrate on the experiments, no distractions to lower your efficiency or stop your valuable brain stream. Having 100 PCs per value makes the kit last for a reasonably long time.

5% SMD Resistor Kits

Resistor 0603-170-100
This kit is built into 4 Super Enclosures. It has all the 481 E96 values + additional 28 values, from 1 Ohm to 10 Ohm and 1M to 10M + one 0 Ohm.

But at least for DK , you will have to add 25% in VAT for price + shipping-price (25% forthe sum of the two), and then around 25$ for DK-Mail to handle the VAT collection.

That's why i selected ebay.de , as there is no VAT for Inter-EU shipping.

Have you bought a set yet?
Does anyone have the SMkits or t the Super Kit Enclosureâ„¢? I would like to hear what people think about the quality of this enclosure

I just came across this 0603 assortment: http://www.watterott.com/Widerst...

They also sell empty micro containers. These are spring loaded and it looks like it's the same as Philips used for their kits - if this is the case then they are very high quality contianers with a very nice spring loaded lid that makes it easy to open and close with SMD tweezers. There's 1, 25 and 100 unit price breaks: http://www.watterott.com/Mikro-C...

They also sell AVR kits etc. Right now they have a great offer for STK600 including a DIP40 adapter for € 111.

These boxes and kits are made by a German company named MIRA ELECTRONIC http://www.mira-electronic.de
I'm not sure if you can buy directly from Mira.

No I haven't. Actually I took a look in the market for just empty containers. I bought 100pcs from RADEL Electronics (here in Greece) in the past and I used them to store ics and semiconductors. Now I need about ~200 pcs to store resistors, capacitors, polyswitches, inductors etc.

AndersAnd, the enclosures you show in these pics look to me like a the plastic enclosures 1206 resistors set that Philips used to sell in the past. That set had the same type of plastics, but in blue colour (non transparent). If these plastics are from the same manufacturer, beleve me they are very good quality.

Yes I think these are the same. At the website http://www.mira-electronic.de they write that they come as standard with colored lids but you can also order them with transparent lids. If there's white labels on top of the lids to show the values it doesn't really help with transparent lids anyway.
These boxes come in many different sizes and colors: red, yellow, green, blue, white, black.
I used to work a place where we had a Philips 0603 resitor and a capacitor assortment like you mentioned. I think the capacitors were in a black container and the resistors in a blue container or maybe it was the opposite.
And I agree they are very high quality.

Like Kartman i use the Altronics set, cheap and cheerful. Provided you show some discipline its pretty easy to keep it organized.
