RS adds functions and products to its comparator

03 October, 2023

RS has enhanced its Think Hub online product comparison service, adding new functions and new product types to the service which it launched at the end of 2022.

The new products – relays and test and measurement tools – join the proximity and photoelectric sensors that the service has supported since its launch. More types of product will be added by the end of 2023.

The RS Think Hub allows users to compare products from multiple suppliers quickly and easily. A new Product Evaluation Tool allows them to discover new products via search and filter functions and compare these with rival devices, while also offering access to CAD files, datasheets and manuals.

An Ask-an-Expert function combines FAQs (frequently-asked questions) with an option to ask questions directly to a team of engineering or product experts who aim to respond within 48 hours.

There is also an area for content related to specific brands and technologies, including digital tools to help users choose, configure and calculate products.

“Through extensive research, we’ve taken the time to really understand the pain points of today’s engineers,” says Rashdeep Kelf, RS’ head of supplier partnerships. “RS Think Hub provides a comprehensive digital platform that delivers fast and easy access to a huge library of accurate information across an increasing number of suppliers and product categories, helping engineers to develop products within stringent cost constraints and meet key demands such as time-to-market, energy efficiency and environmental footprint.”
