How to Convert Kilosiemens to Siemens

To convert a measurement in kilosiemens to a measurement in siemens, multiply the electrical conductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 siemens/kilosiemens.

Since one kilosiemens is equal to 1,000 siemens, you can use this simple formula to convert:

siemens = kilosiemens × 1,000

The electrical conductance in siemens is equal to the electrical conductance in kilosiemens multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilosiemens to siemens using the formula above.
siemens = (5 kS × 1,000) = 5,000 S

How Many Siemens Are in a Kilosiemens?

There are 1,000 siemens in a kilosiemens, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kS = 1,000 S

Kilosiemens and siemens are both units used to measure electrical conductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Kilosiemens?

The kilosiemens is the SI defined unit equal to the kilomho. One kilosiemens is the electrical conductance equal to 1,000 siemens, which are equal to one ampere per volt.

The kilosiemens is a multiple of the siemens, which is the SI derived unit for electrical conductance. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilosiemens can be abbreviated as kS; for example, 1 kilosiemens can be written as 1 kS.

What Is a Siemens?

One siemens is the electrical conductance equal to an increase in current of one ampere for every increase in electrical potential difference of one volt. The siemens is the SI defined unit equal to the mho, and is the reciprocal of the resistance in ohms.

The siemens is the SI derived unit for electrical conductance in the metric system. Siemens can be abbreviated as S; for example, 1 siemens can be written as 1 S.
