    Finding Products

    How do I search for a product?

    Simple. You can do this in several ways:

    Step 1: If you know the stock number or manufacturer's part number, type it into 'Find' by the RS logo on the top left-hand side. You’ll be taken straight to the product.

    Don’t know all of the part number? No problem. Type in what you do know and our search should find what you need. You can also search with one or more keywords, or a manufacturer's name.

    Step 2: Once you’ve found what you want, click and you’ll go to the product page. You’ll see a photo of the product, along with information such as specification, price, technical details, etc.

    Please Note Not all product pages have all of these elements.

    Step 3: Once you’re satisfied, click 'Add to Order'.
