Already vast RS PRO sensor range grows another 60%

Collection of sensors

Distributor RS Components says it is proud to announce a 60% expansion in its RS PRO range of sensors, which brings its full sensor offering to more than 560 products.

Some of the new sensor products in the expanded range include photoelectric, proximity, inductive, capacitive and ultrasonic proximity sensors, load cells, a fibre optical sensor, rotary encoders, a barcode reader and thermocouples.

RS Components says all of the sensors are RS Pro-grade, thoroughly tested for quality and reliability, while being the most competitively priced on the market.

According to Ian Macgregor, RS PRO product manager for ANZ, the expansion in the range is meeting demand in the market for affordable options for engineers looking for choice.

“We’ve seen an upswing in the sourcing of our current product range, and due to interest in other product verticals we have gone to work on this expansive range,” he explained. 

The extended RS PRO sensor range will be welcomed by design, electrical and maintenance engineers across factory assembly lines, automation and robotics industries, who have indicated a need for new longer-term automation component solutions.

RS Components is the world's leading high-service distributor of electronics, automation and control components, tools and consumables. It serves more than a million customers globally. With operations across 32 countries and a global network of distribution centres worldwide, the company ships more than 44,000 parcels daily.
