FORT WORTH, Texas, June 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allied Electronics, a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), announced today that it has released several interactive product finders that will simplify the way customers shop for needed parts and components.

With the Control Cabinet Product Finder, customers are able to mouse over any component in the 3D-rendered control cabinet for a list of all the manufacturers of that product and a link to the product detail page of the specified part. Customers can also take advantage of the Power House Product Finder, featuring AC/DC and DC/DC power supplies from a host of leading suppliers, and the PCB Product Finder, highlighting a variety of common components found on a circuit board.

"Our interactive product finders, available at thinkallied.com, are designed to make finding the parts for a given project simple as they're based on the ultimate product application," said Gabriel Reichman, Customer Marketing Manager for Allied, "making the experience easier, more immersive, and more efficient. It's a great way to find the products you're looking for. And just wait, we're launching several additional product finders this summer that we're really excited about."

Allied Product Director Joe Reed said, "This is an exciting new development in product searches. Now, with Allied's new innovative Interactive product finders, your solutions are as close as a mouse click."
