RoHS Compliant Cable Assembly
EMC Technology and Florida RF Labs have been RoHS (European Directive for Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant since April 2005. RoHS compliance requires restriction of the use of Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr-VI), Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated Diphenylethers (PBDE) per EU directive 2002/95/EC.
As RoHS compliance mandate goes into effect in July 2006, EMC and Florida RF would like to confirm that RoHS compliant parts are available across the entire product portfolio. Some heritage products may not meet the requirements of RoHS. The companies will continue to offer both our standard and RoHS compliant parts. Products that meets the RoHS compliant directive will have a new part number that will consist of the existing part number (non RoHS compliant) followed by an “F” suffix. For example: existing CT2525 has 60/40 tin/lead (SnPb) plated terminations and CT2525F will have silver plated terminations in order to become RoHS compliant.
EMC and Florida RF RoHS compliant products allow for both tin/lead and lead free solder attachment methods. Where solder is required for assembly of final product, RoHS compliant solders will be used. Product is qualified RoHS compliant in accordance with industry standards such as IPC and JEDEC standards. Qualification tests have been performed in accordance with our ISO 9001 certification. This certification signifies that parts meet an internally acceptable set of quality standards. All product that ships as RoHS compliant will be labeled RoHS compliant on the packaging.
