Posted By: bwDraco, 06-30-2015, 05:43 PM

You might notice that many Pentax accessories have model numbers that start with a single letter such as O or D. Here's what these codes mean:
  • D: Power accessories. Examples:
    • D-AC50 AC adapter
    • D-BC90 battery charger
    • D-BG5 battery grip
    • D-BH109 AA battery holder
    • D-LI90 Li-ion battery
  • I: Interface cables. Examples:
    • I-AVC7 A/V cable
    • I-USB7 USB cable
  • K: Kits consisting of multiple items╣. Examples:
    • K-AC82 AC adapter kit for K-m/K2000 and K-x
    • K-AC109 AC adapter kit for K-r
    • K-AC132 AC adapter kit for K-7, K-5 family, and K-3 family
    • K-BC90 battery charger kit
  • O: Miscellaneous accessories. Examples:
    • O-FC1 Flucard for Pentax
    • O-GPS1 GPS unit
    • O-ICK1 image sensor cleaning kit
    • O-LC52 lens cap, 52mm (replace 52 for other sizes)
    • O-ME53 magnifying eyecup
    • O-RC1 waterproof remote control
    • O-ST53 camera strap
    • O-ST132 camera strap (introduced with K-5 II)
    • O-VF1 viewfinder for Pentax Q 01 Standard Prime lens
  • S: Software media. Examples:
    • S-SW110 software CD-ROM for K-5
    • S-SW138 software CD-ROM for K-50 and K-500
    • S-SW150A software CD-ROM for Image Transmitter 2 (tethering software for 645Z)
    • S-SW160 software CD-ROM for K-3 II

╣If applicable, add suffix for region-specific power cord:
  • U: United States and Canada
  • H: United Kingdom
  • E: Europe
  • J: Japan
  • C: China

If there's anything I've missed, be sure to let me know. Thanks!

maybe S-SW is for software.
S is also used for their lens cases, eg S90-100
