I'm looking at a schematic for an old turntable that I am needing help on when viewing the capacitor values. All of the polarized caps will have 2 values written next to symbol i.e. C01 22/10 (MS). I'm assuming one is the voltage and the other is the µF rating.

My Google-fu was not strong enough to find this answer so apologize if it has been asked previously.

It almost always denotes capacitance / voltage rating.

Capacitance in µF, voltage in VDC.

For example:

  • 100/6.3 would be 100 µF, 6.3 VDC
  • 22/10 would be 22 µF, 10 VDC
