RECOM products are already RoHS2 certified

The RoHS Directive has been recently updated under a new EU Directive 2011/65/EU and will now become part of the CE marking requirement, so starting January 2013, all CE-marked products must include RoHS2 in their Declaration of Conformity.

RoHS2 (Restriction oHazardous Substances) is not to be confused with REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of CHemicals). RoHS2 is a European Directive applying to all products sold in Europe that states that products may not contain any of six banned chemicals (with a few very special exceptions). The RoHS2 directive is designed to protect the environment from hazardous chemicals in products and the six banned substances are strictly limited to less than 0.1% by weight (0.01% for Cadmium). The only way to prove that the products are RoHS2 compliant is to do a full chemical analysis.

At the moment, the REACH SVHC list (Substances of Very High Concern) contains 84 chemicals, including some very weird and wonderful substances such as rocket fuel or fluorescent dyes. Most of the substances in the SVHC are known to cause cancer or birth defects if absorbed in high quantities, so REACH is more to protect the workers manufacturing the products than the end user. The other differences are that REACH also applies to chemicals in their pure form (not part of a product) and, despite the risks, small quantities are still allowed to be present in products. RECOMs products are also conform to the REACH regulation, but RECOM doesn’t use chemicals in large quantities in their products, either in the manufacturing or end product.

RECOM has recently renewed the RoHS certificates for the whole product portfolio to ensure that all of their products are still compliant with the RoHS2 directive. The new RoHS2 certificates are available on request.

RoHS-compliant Solder profile

Through hole Converters (Wave Soldering)

Wave Peak Temperature: 260°C
Max. Contact with the Solder Wave: 255 °C for max. 5 seconds
Pin Flashing: 100% Sn

SMD Converter (Reflow Soldering)

Logo used on the case and packaging to indicate RoHS products

Our RoHS compliant products are labelled in all of our financial documentation (Order Confirmation, Delivery Note and Invoice) with the comment "RoHS-konform" or "RoHS-compliant" next to the article description.

The converters themselves carry the RoHS-compliant symbol (the letters Pb crossed out inside a circle). Additionally, the packaging tubes will carry this symbol as a sticker.
