Magnetic Sensor Systemsí Compliance Statement Regarding European Directive on Hazardous Substances:

The European Union Directive 2002/95/EC followed by 2011/65/EU on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) restricts the presence of certain substances, including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and two halide-containing flame retardants: PBB (polybrominated biphenyl) and PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ether) in electrical and electronic products.

The RoHS Directive applies to electrical and electronic products and their component parts, offered for sale into the European Union after July 1, 2006. Other countries are expected to adopt similar legislation with a similar timeline.


Our Commitment to Achieving RoHS Compliance

Magnetic Sensor Systems is actively involved in maintaining compliance to the EU RoHS Directive for products that we offer worldwide. Our RoHS compliance project team is now:

  • Working with external suppliers to ensure compliance of targeted purchased products.
  • Documenting data on all parts and materials.
  • Working with customers to determine their specific RoHS compliance requirements.

    Individual Magnetic Sensor Systems products may be available in various versions. The RoHS initiative may not affect certain customers, i.e. those in the military and aerospace industries. Certain customers are specifically requesting the use of non-RoHS compliant material.

    It is our goal to keep all our customers; those who require RoHS compliance and those who do not, satisfied with our product selection. Non-compliant parts and components will be kept as long as industry demand exists. This strategy will ensure that we will be able to satisfy whatever option our customer base requires.

    The request for compliance should be made specifically at the time of order. There may be a requirement for a minimum quantity order. There may also be an additional cost or a longer lead-time to deliver the item.


    Solder Composition

    Magnetic Sensor Systems has so far qualified the lead-free solder Sn96.5 Ag3.0 Cu0.5 to be used in our internal manufacturing. This qualification is not final and upon further testing and/or recommendations a different type of solder composition may be qualified and used.


    Part Number Identification

    Where applicable, the Magnetic Sensor Systems specification sheet shall indicate if the part is classified as RoHS Compliant.

    The parts will be identified as being RoHS compliant by either modifying the part number (generally by adding the letter G to the beginning of the part number), by marking the shipping container, or by producing a certificate of compliance as requested.


    Guarantee of Compliance

    Magnetic Sensor Systemsí compliance is based on the assumed authenticity of the conformance certificate received from its own suppliers. Magnetic Sensor Systems assumes no liability and makes no independent representations or warranties, expressed or implied, in connection with the use of this information.

    Magnetic Sensor Systems does not warrant that customersí own products, which incorporate such MSS products, will in turn comply with European Directive 2005/95/EC. In all events, customer shall remain liable for ensuring its own products meet the requirements of European Directive 2002/95/EC, including but not necessarily limited to:

  • verifying the compatibility with its soldering process
  • checking marking, date-code and box labeling of all MSS products
  • customerís stock management and product qualification in the application
