Quantum's Encoder Division Complies with RoHS Manufacturing Practices

July 14, 2006

Regulations ban the use of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE, and cadmium in products distributed in the European Union.

Barneveld, WI, Quantum Devices Inc. is pleased to announce their commitment to excellence with their manufacturing firm's conversion to meet all applicable Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations as of July 1 for electronic components and hardware. RoHS regulations state that new electrical and electronic equipment cannot exceed maximum concentration values for any homogenous material within the equipment. This will comply with the requirements of the European Union (EU) RoHS directive for all banned substances, such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE, and cadmium, for products distributed in the EU. We will continue to offer our standard line for applications that do not require RoHS compliance, as well as RoHS-compliant devices. Both QD and QR encoders have been available since January 1. Non-RoHS-compliant encoders are under the product code of QD145. RoHS compliant encoders are under the product code of QR145.

Quantum Devices Inc. is committed to provide the quality and reliability that you would expect. We will continue to provide products that will reflect our leading edge in the motion control technology industry. For further information, please visit our Web site.
