Does this tool collect personal data?
The browser tool does NOT collect any personal data but we do log the number of successful installations and current active users. Be assured, any data we do collect is anonymous.

Can I speak to someone about this tool?
You can contact with any feedback or questions. In most cases we will respond within 24 Hours. If the question is a common one you may be referred to the FAQs. Please check our FAQs before contacting us.

Can I change how and when Price Alerts are displayed?
Yes, the Parts Finder Tool is set up so that 'Price Alerts' only appear when you are searching for products sold by Farnell. However, if you do not need the 'Price Alerts' at any point you can disable them by clicking on the Parts List icon in the top right of your browser.

  • Turn off Price Alerts (Google only) - Switch 'Alerts on Google' to OFF
  • Turn off All Price Alerts (including Google) - Switch all 'Price Alerts' to OFF

Re-enabling them is as simple as turning the switches back to ON.

How do I uninstall an older version?
Uninstalling the Parts Finder Tool is simple and well documented by the browser vendors.

  • In Chrome right click the Parts List icon and select manage, then hit the bin icon
  • In Firefox go to Tools > Addons, then hit remove on the appropriate add-on

Which supplier websites does it work with automatically?
Currently we have the add-on working with TE, Fluke, Molex, Wiedmuller, Honeywell and Texas Instruments. The notifications only display on product level pages so you are unlikely to see a Price Alert when the supplier site displays a list of products.

Can I see some working examples of the Price Notifications in action?
You do not need to do anything to make the alerts work. Simply continue with normal web browsing and if a part number is detected you will be notified.

If you would like to see some examples to get you started just install the add-on (if you haven’t already) and click on these links below to see the alerts in action.

Can I see some working examples of the Right Click function?
Why not try and right click on these manufacturer codes and keywords to see the results. When you right click you should see the Farnell logo in your menu, select 'Parts Finder Search' and the results will appear in your current browser window.

  • ATTINY2313-20PU
  • Fluke 233
  • FRDM-KL46Z
  • Arduino Uno

What is browser Sync’ing?
Browser sync allows you to work across multiple installations of your browser so anything you add to your parts list at work will appear in your browser on your laptop or home PC, providing you are logged into your chrome browser with the same account. This is well tested in chrome and is available as an experimental add-on in Firefox.

If you want to enable syncing in Firefox you need to go to 'Tools > Sync' and follow the instructions.
