According to the companies, this agreement enables fast sourcing for sensors and encoders

Peerless Electronics, a stocking distributor of switches, relays and circuit breaker products, has agreed to distribute the comprehensive line of encoder and sensor products from field leader BEI Sensors (Thousand Oaks, California).

Specializing in speed and position sensors for extreme applications within the industrial, military, aerospace and off-highway marketplaces, the BEI product line is extensive. It includes optical and magnetic encoders, hall effect sensors, potentiometers (wirewound, conductive plastic and hybrid), electronic interface modules, wireless modules, and a variety of product accessories. 

Peerless will stock specialized and hard to find products for extreme applications, including for wash-down and corrosive environments, high shock and vibration, extended operating temperatures, wet and dirty operations, and products certified for hazardous area use. 

"By combining Peerless’ distribution reach and expertise with BEI’s broad product lines on the same team, end user customers will have a far easier route to finding the right high quality sensors and encoders for their specific applications. This union incorporates an extensive product range, from standard off-the-shelf items to completely customized solutions for just about every application, and promises to be a fast, efficient and cost-effective product acquisition alternative,” said William Gallucci, President of Peerless Electronics.
