Current State of RoHS Compliance of OMRON Electronic Components
All of the products shown on the OMRON Electronic Components Website ("this website") comply with the RoHS Directive. Ask your OMRON representative or any OMRON dealer for information on RoHS compliance of products not shown on this website (including products that have been discontinued).
Activities for RoHS-compliant Products
The RoHS Directive (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) was implemented in the European Union (EU) on July 1, 2006. The RoHS Directive prohibits the use of six substances in electrical and electronic equipment in the EU. The six substances are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE).
OMRON has complied with the RoHS Directive for all products which might be expected to be used within the EU and the parts used in these products at the end of June 2006.
See RoHS (2011/65/EU) Compliance Product Family List of Relays, Switches, Connectors, Micro Sensing Devices, MEMS Sensors.
The "Ro" Mark means indication on package that the six substances specified in RoHS Directive are eliminated from products (work in process or components built-in PCBs)
The following criteria are used for the six substances specified in the RoHS Directive.
(except for items excluded from application of the RoHS Directive)
- Lead:1,000 ppm max.
- Mercury:1,000 ppm max.
- Cadmium:100 ppm max.
- Hexavalent chromium: 1,000 ppm max.
- PBB:1,000 ppm max.
- PBDE:1,000 ppm max.
