RoHS & REACH Environmental Compliance
- RoHS ‘1’
EU DIRECTIVE (2002/95/EC) & EU DIRECTIVE (2008/98/EC)
This is the original RoHS. This regulation is an EU Directive (2002/95/EC) pertaining to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE). It was adopted by the EU in February 2003 and brought into force 1st of July 2006.
- RoHS ‘2’
EU DIRECTIVE (2011/65/EU)
RoHS2 is an updated / revised version of the RoHS ‘1’. There are no additions to or difference in the six restricted substances although the amounts of the allowed ppm for some substance are reduced.
- RoHS ‘3’
EU DIRECTIVE (2015/863/EU)
RoHS ‘3’ expands the list of prohibited substances from six to ten by adding four new types of phthalates. This directive has already been adopted by the EU legislature. The new list is as follows: Lead (0.1 %) Mercury (0.1 %) Cadmium (0.01 %) Hexavalent chromium (0.1 %) Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (0.1 %) Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0.1 %) Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (0.1 %) Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) (0.1 %) Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) (0.1 %) Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) (0.1 %)
For the Johanson Technology surface mount High-Q capacitor line, there are RoHS 3 compliant families available.
S-SERIES ARE COMPLIANT WITH RoHS
The S-Series family has lead free, 100% tin plated terminations, and it meets the RoHS directive. This does not include the optional termination code "T&C" which signifies tin-lead, Sn/Pb, terminations are not RoHS 3 compliant. All S-Series size families (R07, R14 & R15) have lead content way below the 1000ppm threshold in their ceramic body. Therefore, the entire S-Series family is RoHS 3 compliant.L-SERIES ARE COMPLIANT WITH RoHS
The L-Series 0201 capacitors (R05L) with manufacturing lot codes of 2013 are compliant to the latest RoHS standard (Less than 1000 ppm lead).
The optional termination code "T&C" which signifies tin-lead, Sn/Pb, terminations are not RoHS 3 compliant.
All other RoHS prohibited materials are non-existent in this family. Therefore, the entire L-Series family is RoHS 3 compliant.E-SERIES ARE COMPLIANT WITH RoHS
The E-Series family which was designed for low loss, high current and high voltage applications has lead free, 100% tin plated terminations, and it can meet the RoHS directive. This does not include the optional termination code "T&C" which signifies tin-lead, Sn/Pb, terminations are not RoHS 3 Compliant. All E-Series size families (S42, S48 & S58) are completely lead-free in their ceramic body. Therefore, the entire E-Series family is RoHS 3 compliant.LASERTRIM
The laser trim capacitor series meets the RoHS directive as long as "N", "S", or "M" dielectrics are shown in the part number.SINGLE LAYER
The single layer capacitor series mostly meet the RoHS directive. However, some dielectrics do not. Please consult the factory for further clarification. In all instances, the terminations are lead free.
INDUCTORSRF CERAMIC INDUCTORS ARE COMPLIANT WITH RoHS
Our entire monolithic inductor family is RoHS 3 compliant.
For the Johanson Technology wire wound inductors, the entire product family is RoHS 3 compliant (all prohibited materials are absent). Wire wound inductors also have lead free terminations, regardless of date of manufacture.
RF INTEGRATED PASSIVE COMPONENTSRF Components
For our RF component line, including filters (LPF, HPF, BPF, and Filter-Baluns ), antennas, couplers, baluns, matched impedance balun-filters and diplexers, the entire product family is RoHS 3 compliant (all prohibited materials are absent).
Johanson Technology Inc. is constantly working with customers to design and manufacture components to keep up with industry standards. All new products will have minimal if not any substances of very high concern. Check the Johanson Technology website (www.johansontechnology.com) site periodically for future updates.REACH Certification
The European Commission Environment is constantly adding substances of very high concern to their registered substances list. Currently manufacturers are required to certify their products one time per calendar year. During the time a certification is valid substances may be added which will not apply to aging certification until next calendar year. Currently Johanson Technology Inc. receives their certification on February of each year.
