What is RoHS?
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.

What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).

Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.

How are products tested for RoHS compliance?
Portable RoHS analyzers, also known as X-ray fluorescence or XRF metal analyzers, are used for screening and verification of RoHS compliance.

Which companies are affected by the RoHS Directive?
Any business that sells applicable electronic products, sub-assemblies or components directly to EU countries, or sells to resellers, distributors or integrators that in turn sell products to EU countries, is impacted if they utilize any of the restricted materials.

Our Euro style LMI Snap On Modules connector is available in 1 - 30 poles, with a PIN spacing of 7 mm is able to handle high voltages of up to 300V using current levels up to 4 Amps. Each connector is extremely adaptive and easily accepts from 30 to 16 AWG wire. The connector is solidly constructed and has been rigorously tested and is approved by the UL/CSA and IMQ/VDE.

The connector block has tiny space requirements, is ruggedly built and can withstand up to 110 degrees centigrade. This connector is very safe and fabricated from the material: PA68 which has a flame ability rating of UL94V0

The spring contact connection from LMI connector is currently in use in millions of applications all over the world and all share the following properties:
Damage-free conductor clamping due to pre-programmed clamping force, dependent on conductor diameter
Designed to provide Safety and to be Secure
Time and cost effective because it is vibration proof
Easy to understand operation
Flexibility in Wire Selection, one product fits most applications

Each connector is soldered to the circuit board and easily connects to spring contact connections.

The Euro Style Connector has a very small footprint that minimizes space requirements.

These connectors are ideal for and widely used in Industrial Controls, Process Control and Data Acquisition applications.
