gResistor – resistance color code identifier


gResistor – resistance color code identifier

It is surprising there are so many free applications that exist for all kinds of things in Ubuntu. For anyone studying electronics, gResistor may be quite helpful. It is a simple application that allows us to test the value of a resistor by its color code.

gResistor simply allows you to understand these codes which are are indicative of their resistance, tolerance and temperature coefficient. All you have to do is interpret the colors on entering the program. You may notice that the value of the resistance changes with the sequence changes that you select. This would have been so helpful in high school when taking electronics class back in the day.

Installation is simple in most any version of Ubuntu. Open the Ubuntu Software Center and search for “gResistor”. You can also install via terminal command by typing:

sudo apt-get install gresistor

This is a simple and light program that is most helpful. Have fun!

I am a linux user for over 10 years and Ubuntu linux is my only operating system. I originally made the jump from Windows to Ubuntu and open source back in early 2007 (using Ubuntu 6.10) for privacy and virus concerns.
