Statement of Restrictive Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
UltraVolt Inc., with the cooperation of its entire supply chain, is striving to offer its OEM customers, high-voltage power supplies that will be in full compliance with Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronics equipment (RoHS). In order to achieve this goal, UltraVolt will offer a new option, to allow these customers to specify RoHS compliance.
This new option (-R6) will be made available as soon as the supply chain has certified its parts are in full compliance, thereby making the product RoHS compliant by vendor certification. This suffix will require special manufacturing techniques that will have an effect on both price and lead time.
UltraVolt, Inc. at this time is shipping the entire product line with RoHS-5 compliance by vendor certification.
In an effort to classify their equipment, some members of the Electronics Industry have chosen to define components that utilize lead in quantities that exceed the maximum limits in the European Parliament Directive as RoHS-5 compliant. We have elected to do the same for all products with an effective manufacturing date starting November 28, 2004.
Use of UltraVolt high-voltage power supplies and test fixtures that have been designated as RoHS-5 compliant may be acceptable if the end use complies with the exceptions currently noted in the European Parliament Directive as per Annex to RoHS Directive (Directive 2002/95/EC); Exemptions to RoHS:
7. Lead in solders for servers, storage and storage array systems, network infrastructure equipment for switching, signaling, transmission as well as network management for telecommunication; lead in electronic ceramic parts (e.g. piezoelectronic devices)
Whoever chooses to use UltraVolt components in any of the above applications must certify their equipment under their own part numbers.
