Brilliant ideas lead to innovative technologies.
Schools and universities are the natural places in which the ideas come to life. Even the most disruptive idea cannot make any difference without the proper tools and support.
RS Components can provide schools and universities with a wide and constantly updated offer of the most recent technologies, working closely and supporting them with their projects.

Robotics Lab

From the latest open source industrial hardware up to full robotic arms, RS Components can support robotics projects with a wide and daily growing offer of products and accessories, with the reliability of the industrial standards.

Automation Lab

Open source automation hardware is an hot topic within education. Students and developers can design and build their projects by using real industrial compliance products combined with the flexibility of the open source programming.
RS Components is constantly searching for innovative products and new solutions for its customers, like Barth open source PLC.

Barth Electronik has developed and is still developing a series of open source highly integrated programmable logic controllers providing outstanding graphical programming capability at lowest current consumption and small form factor.

Barth has developed a graphical programming suite called miCon-L Software Suite, which is distributed for free and features programming, simulation and test in one unique software design tool.
