Unhappy Components in Belgium

Hi there,

I wonder where the best place would be to buy components in Belgium. Not much (well none actually) shops that I know of carry stuff like OPA627 or IRFP240.
RS Belgium told me they only deal with companies.

Any of you guys know shops in my neighbourhood ? Internet ordering is also okay if they deliver to Belgium. How is payment done then ?

All suggestions welcome,

Thanks,

Gert

I used spoerle electronics (they have office in zaventem), very fast, only first purchase have to be >200 euro.
So ordered a bunch of irfp240,140, 9240,610,9610 and 044.
Received them next day, all in rail, same serie.

Still collecting stuff before starting to build.

After matching I might be able to help you with the mosfets.

Do you know any surplus or cheap heat-sink and toroid-trafo sources?

Lieven,

How much did you pay for these IRFP044 ? And how many did you buy?

Are you planning on building an Aleph 2

Default Components in Belgium

I get a lot of my stuff from Farnell. Not the cheapest, but they take (very) small orders, shipping always free, very generous exchange policy in case of a problem.

For IC etc, try ATSYS, they specilize in small orders.

Hi fellow Belgians,

Local shops are indeed a misery. In Gent, there is Gentronics (which has very little in stock and orders from the "onderdelenspecialist") and Radiohome. Radiohome has a much larger selection of components, but I found the boss so rude I have made a solemn oath never to go in there anymore.

I'm afraid it's even worse for speaker components in Belgium

I have never ordered from Farnell for private things, but they should be OK: www.farnell.com

Greetings from Gent,
Dirk

I just took a quick look at Farnell's site. Not very simple to extract the right components from their catalogue.

The search string "IRFP044" gave an awfull lot of 'pink noise' in the listing I got on my screen. :bigeyes: How do you guys find the right IRFP044 in this list ?

Has anyone experience with their pay policy ?

Marc

Default Components etc

Zeno,

I know, their website sucks.
I have the hardcopy catalog, 2 volumes about 15cm total. Very easy to use, I never bother with the site.

They always send a 30-month payment bill. But, I buy through a company, so possibly if you cannot provide them a VAT number, you may need to pay on delivery.

Note that Farnell BE is just a phone number, you always end up in NL where their warm bodies are. The invoices list a BE bankaccount, though.
