RS Components has launched an interactive digital motor control configurator, developed in partnership with Schneider Electric.


The Ask the Expert digital motor control configurator is an intuitive graphics-based product selection tool that assists automation engineers in configuring motor control systems swiftly and easily. A talking avatar called Stan guides engineers via a simple stepwise process of inputting required parameters, such as power supply voltage, motor power and contactor coil voltage. It then presents matching product options that enable engineers to choose a full system selection, incorporating relevant inverter drives, contactors and motor starters.


"Digital innovation lies at the heart of our product strategy,” said Anthony Locke, eCommerce global accounts director at Schneider Electric. “We are always seeking new ways to make product selection simpler, faster and more accurate for our customers. Co innovation with partners like RS enables us to develop digital tools that help engineers find what they are looking for quickly and easily."


Kristian Olsson, global vice president of Automation and Control, RS Components, said: “The development of Ask the Expert demonstrates the potential of digital interactive tools in simplifying product selection. It is another step on our journey to transform the lives of industrial engineers through digital experiences. We look forward to strengthening our ongoing digital collaboration with Schneider Electric to encompass a wider range of products and solutions in the field of automation and control.”
