Newark launches online reference tool

Online reference tool provides detailed information on all connectors from leading brands


Electronics distributor Newark has launched a comprehensive online reference tool showcasing connectors from more than 30 of the most trusted brands. 

The new Connector e-Guide allows engineers to easily review and select relevant interconnect products from Newark’s extensive connector catalog by photo or part number.

The e-Guide uses large visuals to clearly display and categorize connectors in a single online hub, making it an invaluable tool for engineers who may need to find and replace an application’s damaged connector without knowing the part number to identify it. In addition, the e-Guide’s intuitive interface displays associated products and accessories, such as cable and wire, crimp tools and other installation aids. This key feature saves time by reducing the need to research supporting products so engineers can easily select the most suitable connectivity solution for their designs.

Product categories covered by Newark’s Connector e-Guide include:

  • PCB connectors
  • High-speed I/O devices
  • Circular connectors
  • Terminal blocks and terminals
  • Plug and socket connectors
  • RF and coaxial types
  • Power connectors
  • Audio and video products
  • USB connectors
  • Automotive
  • Heavy-duty and industrial connectors
  • D-subminiature ranges
  • Sensor, fiber-optic and modular (Ethernet) connectors

All products featured on the Connector e-Guide are backed by Newark’s unique product support features, including full reel packaging availability, local 24/5 technical support, easy and secure online ordering and same-day shipping.

“We are aiming to deliver a truly customer-centric approach in our Connector e-Guide, recognizing the challenges engineers face and helping them make important buying decisions faster,” says Cliff Ortmeyer, global head of technical marketing for Newark. “The e-Guide’s intuitive and user-friendly interface showcases the breadth of our product portfolio and groups related products together. Customers can benefit from the unparalleled level of support that Newark provides from initial design concept through to large scale production.”
