3Y Power RoHS Position Statement
3Y Power is currently shipping products that are in compliance with EU Directive on Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).
The Directive requires that, beginning July 1, 2006, new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The maximum concentration levels, by weight per homogeneous material, have been set by the Technical Adaptation Committee (TAX) at 0.01% for cadmium and 0.1% for the remaining substances.
An exemption has been granted, currently until 2010, for lead (Pb) in solders for servers, storage and storage array systems, network infrastructure equipment for switching, signaling and transmission, and network management for telecommunication.
3Y Power's standard catalog products will comply with concentration levels set for the six substances (RoHS-6) or five substances (RoHS-5). 3Y Power's custom products will comply with the Directive according to customer-defined specifications. This will either be RoHS-6 were all six substances are limited or RoHS-5 where an exemption for lead (Pb) has been specified.
