    Hi,

    I have a capacitor the has 22uM 63V on it.
    I know uF means microfarad but not sure what uM is ?

    Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on this.
    Hope you can help.

    Thanks

    I'm not famiialr with the designation uM. If you can take a picture of the cap with the text clearly visible, it would go a long way toward assisting us with determining an answer.

    Ahhh, any possibility that it's actually an inductor, and it actually reads 22uH ?

    Certainly that is one explanation. I am hoping the OP has a digital camera and will post a picture of the device with the nomenclature clearly visible. This will go a long way toward clearing up the mystery.

    Inductors aren't usually rated in terms of voltage. My bet is 22 uF.
