RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global omnichannel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, announced a collaboration with Phoenix Contact Southeast Asia, one of the world’s leading future-oriented makers of industrial automation technologies.

This collaboration will see a significant expansion of the ‘COMPLETE line’ portfolio of products and essential accessories for control cabinet applications, boasting over 9000 products in all the key areas of building control cabinets.

Over 2500 new devices in the range will be available on the RS Southeast Asia platforms, making RS the first high-service distributor to offer the full ‘COMPLETE line’ in the region. Customers will benefit from having full access to a unique portfolio, reducing overall handling costs and minimising planning and installation times for control cabinet construction and maintenance.

The ‘COMPLETE line’ system comprises an entire suite of coordinated hardware and software products aimed at switching, connection and disconnection, and measuring, controlling and automating applications. Panel builders are able to optimise work processes in control cabinet development through its standardised design, haptics, and functionality. The system brings together all of the manufacturer’s control panel products and essential accessories in one range. It also cuts down time spent on installation, maintenance, and operating existing and new control cabinet solutions.

“Having the full COMPLETE line on the RS Southeast Asian platforms allows us to provide factory automation customers with elevated end-to-end industrial control solutions, from build through to maintenance,” said Sean Fredericks, President, Asia Pacific at RS. “Our customers in Southeast Asia will quickly realise the benefits from deploying it, helping them reduce space, and accelerating design and instalment of new control cabinets.”

“We have enjoyed a close partnership for more than 15 years with RS, a long-time distribution channel partner for Phoenix Contact,” said Lars Kleinegees, International Channel Partner Manager at Phoenix Contact. “Through all its various channels, RS offers its large and global customer base with fast and easy access to more than 25,000 products from Phoenix Contact.”

“RS Components’ wide digital reach coupled with the extensive range of quality products and solutions from Phoenix Contact forms the perfect partnership to bring the value and benefit of COMPLETE line to the customers in South East Asia.” said Charlie Lim, Segment Director at Phoenix Contact.
