RS Components (RS) has introduced manufacturer standard packaging on a range of interconnect and passive products from top brands including Panasonic and TE Connectivity.
Initially rolled out in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), customers in the region can now purchase a selection of thin film resistors, inductors and crimp terminals in full reel quantities to meet their pre-production needs. The service will be fully available to customers in Asia Pacific later in the year.
The availability of standard pack sizes gives customers the flexibility to order parts for both prototyping and full production requirements from RS, saving them time and money in the sourcing and purchasing process.
“Our service guarantee to customers revolves around fast, efficient delivery direct from stock, which until now has applied mainly to customers requiring smaller quantities for prototyping,” said Kevin McCormack, Global Head of Interconnect, Passives and Electromechanical at RS Components. The introduction of full reel quantities on these product lines is the first phase of our plan to service a broader spectrum of customers searching for leading-brand electronic components, no matter how great or small their needs.”
