Title: What does "MKa" mean?
Post by: TheBaconWizard on March 08, 2018, 12:51:20 am
I am completely unfamiliar with the designation mkA, does anyone know what it stands for?

Here is a link to a datasheet where it is used (English translation immediately under the first picture)

Could it be micro-amps per volt?  :-//

I'd say it's the Russian way of writing microampere (uA).

Would also guess at microamperes. The russian word for "micro" is "mikro", as such "mk" could mean "MiKro".

Righto, that seems likely. I'll proceed with that assumption :)

Thanks guys.

That basically means you do not understand the purpose of the subject field.  >:D

Err no!
Wilfred understands the importance of having a forum that is easy to search for answers one might seek.

OP, put mkA instead of 'this".
