RS is the first distributor in Europe to stock the IDEC range, which will initially include more than 1000 part numbers available to RS customers with more to follow in the coming months. The launch includes more than 700 new industrial control switches with both 16 mm and 22 mm diameters, as well as safety switches, enabling switches, safety laser scanners, power supplies and industrial LED lighting products.

“APEM has been a longstanding partner of RS and welcomes the opportunity to develop its business and relationship following the IDEC acquisition,” said Eric Smith, vice president, interconnect and electromechanical at RS. “The high-quality industrial nature of the IDEC product range will resonate well with our core customers across all markets.”
