Asahi/America Items Comply with EU RoHS Directive

The RoHS Directive, in effect July 1, 2006, applies to electrical and electronic equipment sold to the member nations of the European Union (EU). The intent of this Directive is to eliminate the following hazardous substances from electric/electronic equipment components.

Hg - Mercury, Cd - Cadmium, Pb - Lead, CrVI(Cr+6) - Hexalevent Chromium, PBDE - Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers, PBB - Polybrominated Biphenyls

The following Asahi America, Inc. products comply with this directive:

  • Series 92, Series 94, Series 83 electric actuators
  • All Voltage Options
  • Extra Limit Switches
  • 2-Wire Control
  • Mechanical Brake
  • Heater and Thermostat
  • Cycle Length Control (CLC)
  • Center-Off

As our current inventory levels for non-compliant electrical/electronic components are depleted and replaced with RoHS Compliant components (FIFO Inventory), we will be expanding this list of products that comply with the RoHS Directive.
