    Can anyone advise what I need to buy here as RS components website is just confusing as hell.

    I want to buy some Uninsulated 6.3mm Female Spade connectors and the plastic covers that look like the picture attached.
    To suit 2.5mm^2 cable.
    perhaps a few male spades to suit too.

    Need high quality connectors not eBay junk hence trying to buy from RS.

    Dont mind buying between 100 or even 250 connectors & covers.

    Search for TE 'faston' tabs on the rs website.

    RS is very good and you get free next day delivery and they as cheap as anywhere else

    The big issue is finding what you need because they often use different terminology

    Luckily the RS website search is also the best of the big 4... At one point you could even type Farnell stock codes into it and it would return the same part :)

    IMO all the search facilities have gone very much down hill. Once over they used to send you a box full of nice catalogues and you could find whatever you wanted in no time, then simply type the number into the website to place your order :whistle:

    R.S. and Farnell have a 10th of the search people in technical ie to find stuff for you, plus you need to be a wholesaler and have your account number to verify before they'll do it. Speak to SWA and they'll give you a part number and send you to a place to buy, rs AND farnell have a lot of tat in this type of thing nowadays. Use normal ones and hellerman sleeves like a pro. Also, whilst on the subject a of garbage Chinese imports, you all should be using 0361Tq not the battery cable from China it is really bad, I blew a GYS smaw with it as movement made it arc in the dinse. Made all my own leads since, with my trusty Murex econ400's, ace they are. Don't get on with tongs of any kind and never weld with 2 hands, ever.

    If you want some quality spade connectors Brad there is one of those big Linbin trays full of them in the container, there has been a bird nesting in them so will need some form of non corrosive cleaning. More than welcome to a few handfuls if you want them.

    I was looking after the farm one day when our RS rep came down to speak to my parents. They weren't in and I was at the time working at BAE Systems Detica who'd just had SAP forced upon us. It turns out the crapness of the RS website was down to them having to switch their accounting / everything software to SAP. They had a period where for a month they couldn't actually do anything! Not great for a distributor, thankfully due to some ingenious paper logging they managed to hide the fact from most people.

    Specialist wiring accessories. Google, it's called a search engine I believe. You just put in 'swa' and 'crimp' and voila. I work for an Electrical Wholesaler. They supply a lotta companies.

    Yes it was a bit vague Hugh had a point, less bodies at RS basically so they're clueless finding anything, phone up for the most basic things they can't help. Problem with most places unfortunately. Computer says no.....phone down.
