Pulizzi Engineering Offers RoHS-Compliant Units

Author:
Publish date:

SANTA ANA, CA--Pulizzi Engineering is now compliant to the RoHS directive standards for the restriction of hazardous substances in electronic equipment. According to Mike Pulizzi, vice president of Pulizzi Engineering, "Our first RoHS product released to production was manufactured in February 2006. Since that date, we have released 25 additional products as RoHS compliant."

The RoHS conversion effort has been over a two-year process and included implementation of new lead-free solder processes. The products converted include all catalog products designed for use in the EU market, which are identified by the IEC type C13 "computer style" connectors. The RoHS directive is required for any company that either ships directly into the EU or has customers that ship into the EU. There are also advantages for products that ship into North America. By removing hazardous substances, the products are safer to handle and create less health risks when disposed of.

All of Pulizzi Engineering's RoHS-compliant materials have supplier declarations of compliance on file. When materials are received, they are required to have a RoHS marking on the package. Received materials are then inspected and randomly tested with x-ray scanning technology. The scanning process helps find any potential distributor mix-ups and allows for some secondary verification of manufacturer certifications. It also prevents lead components from entering and contaminating the lead free circuit board manufacturing processes.
