RS Pro range bolstered with addition of over 500 test and measurement products


The rebranding of ISO-TECH to expand the RS Pro test and measurement range gives customers more choice, performance, value and quality


Johannesburg, South Africa, 5 April 2017 - RS Components (RS), the trading brands of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced the addition of more than 500 professional, affordable products for the test and measurement market to the RS Pro range. The products, which previously formed the ISO-TECH range, have been rebranded to strengthen the own-brand portfolio of more than 40,000 high-quality competitively priced industrial products and electronic components.


This move represents a final consolidation of all of the RS own-brand products under the RS Pro branding, which launched in February 2016 and has been built up to offer a combination of quality, performance and value. All products in the range are backed by the RS Seal of Approval, which represents leading industry standards for audit, inspection, test and certification.


The ISO-TECH products that have transitioned to the RS Pro range offer rugged design and highly accurate measurements and include: water-resistant multimeters; digital light meters; sound-level meters; and high-performance digital oscilloscopes offering advanced functions that are generally found on much more expensive test equipment. All the products come with a warranty that covers the purchaser against defects in material and workmanship for up to three years.


Kurt Colehower, President RS Pro, said: “The rebranding of ISO-Tech to RS Pro is a direct response to our customers’ needs. Now as RS Pro, we are tailoring our test and measurement product range to meet our customer requirements and taking the opportunity to expand the range of products. RS Pro is committed to giving customers a choice to get quality and performance at a fair price, and the RS Pro test and measurement product offering is now a key part of the RS Pro family of products.”
