L-com Connectivity Products, of North Andover, MA, has responded to the Restriction on Hazardous Materials (RoHS) directive by releasing the RoHS status of its cables, connectors, adapters, and other connectivity products on its web site: www.L-com.com. In response to the large number of military, security, and medical industry uses for its products, for which the RoHS status is important when specifying components for projects, this change allows buyers, engineers, and technicians easy access to up-to-date RoHS status information.
This enhancement to its already popular web site is in line with new industry norms. "By putting the RoHS detail right in the product's web page," said L-com Executive Director, Al Contarino, "we are continuing our commitment to make shopping for essential connectivity products easier. I'm sure component engineers and buyers appreciate the effort and wish all their vendors would do this."
The RoHS directive, which was first adopted by the European Union in 2003, officially took effect on July 1st, 2006. It restricts the amount of certain substances, deemed to be hazardous in large quantities, from use in many electrical components, in an effort to reduce hazardous substance buildup in landfills.
L-com has been working on converting its product line over to comply with the RoHS directive for over a year, but has only provided the details on individual items on a per-request basis. This shift is seen as further evidence of L-com's concern and commitment to quality.
