OSRAM Opto Semiconductors choose RS to provide their online Light Shop in Europe and Asia

RS Components is pleased to announce that it has entered into a sales partnership agreement with OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH, as part of the lighting semiconductor specialists’ new Internet Light Shop initiative.

Virtually the entire range of products from the specialist semiconductor producer will be available from stock held by RS: LED families, infra-red components, high-powered laser diodes, OLED displays and a wide range of LED displays for indoor and outdoor applications. The Light Shop is intended for potential customers such as developers, architects, lighting planners, universities and individuals who only want to buy small quantities of these products.
Under the agreement, which covers the markets in Europe and Asia, visitors to The Light Shop site (http://www.osram-os.com/lightshop) simply click on the ‘buy here’ button for the product they want and are taken directly to RS’ site to complete their purchase. The new Osram Opto Semiconductors´ products added to the RS range can also be viewed at http://rswww.com/electronics.
RS has a successful track record of working with designers involved in R&D, prototyping, pre-production and maintenance, offering them a wide selection of products available quickly and in small quantities. “Strong consumer and R&D customer bases as well as worldwide logistic capabilities to handle low volume quantities are only some of the reasons why we see RS Components as our Light-Shop partner of choice for Europe and Asia,” says Michael Wohs, Director Global Distribution at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. “The new partnership enables all kind of customers to get convenient access to the wide range of innovative OSRAM semiconductors products, even for small quantities.”
This announcement follows the introduction of Solid State Lighting technology solutions to RS’ electronic product portfolio at the start of November. The leading distributor of Electronic, Electrical, Electromechanical and Industrial Components, now offers a comprehensive and complementary range of LEDs, drivers, optics, accessories and hardware.
Klaus Goeldenbot, General Manager of RS UK, said: “Light emitting diodes offer major economic benefits thanks to low energy consumption, long life and low maintenance and are the perfect basis for creative ideas and new lighting solutions. In partnership with OSRAM, RS is helping to provide engineers with the easiest access to the widest range of technologies, products, and solutions for all their application development needs.”
