Stacy, MN (PressExposure) August 07, 2006 -- The Internet has become a key tool for engineers today. Rather than being restricted to a handful of manufacturers and distributors in their region, engineers are now reaching out across the web to find the most competitive pricing on electrical components.
The problem? A typical web search will return literally thousands of hits, some relevant, many not, not to mention dead links and re-directs. For instance, a simple google search for an 02 sensor will return approximately 11,000,000 hits. Only the staunchest engineer is going to sift through a listing of that magnitude to locate a competitive supplier or manufacturer. Literally hours can be exhausted attempting to locate even a few reputable suppliers to compare specs, pricing and availability.
Things just got a whole lot easier. [http://SensorRecsource.Com] was launched 2 months ago by an independent design engineer from Minnesota. The website is an engineering sensor database bringing the best sensor manufacturers and distributors, from around the world, together in one location. Originally designed for in-house use, (literally), the database has grown exponentially over the past few weeks and is currently being utilized by engineers in 30 countries.
The database is organized by sensor type/function. Click on a sensor, and you receive a listing of its top manufacturers and distributors with a direct link to their site. Price and spec comparisons can be completed in minutes rather than hours. There are also numerous listings for suppliers that deal exclusively in discontinued and obsolete components.
The database is continually being updated and refined. Manufacturers are encouraged to submit their site for inclusion in the database. Companies wishing to participate in this free database may submit their site information to Admin@SensorResource.Com. By yearâs end, we hope to house the most comprehensive sensor database on-line.
