RoHS Information

Test Certificates and materials content information are available upon request.

In February of 2003 the European Union released The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive (2002/95/EC) restricting the use of Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium and PBB/PBDE flame retardant materials in electrical and electronic products sold in Europe beginning July 1, 2006. The EU Directive was updated December 2006 to EU 2006/122/EC adding PFoS as a banned substance. On July 1, 2011, A June 8, 2011 new RoHS directive, 2011/65/EC (“RoHS 2”) was announced in the Official Journal of the EU.

Measures on the collection, treatment, recycling and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) are set out in Directive (2002/96/EC) of January 2003 to reduce the waste management problems linked to the heavy metals and flame retardants referenced above. Suntsu’s response to the growing demand for environmentally friendly components began January 2004 with the introduction of optional lead-free surface mount tantalum capacitors. All Suntsu surface mount lead-free products comply with RoHS requirements.

All Nexsun products are manufactured lead-free and RoHS compliant as of the full implementation dates of production changes.

The change to lead-free design has no negative effect in the electrical parameters, solderability, reliability or product performance.

The new EU chemicals regulation know as REACH came into effect June 1st, 2007. In the event a substance of very high concern (SVHC) becomes present in one of our products Suntsu will notify customers as required.

Nexsun devices are free of Halogens (Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine and Iodine), Antimony and Phosphorous.

All Nexsun products meet environmental compliance requirements in accordance with the following:

  • Ban on PFoS / PFoA
  • Ban on DECA-BDE
  • China RoHS
  • JEA
  • JEDEC, JESD D22-B102D
