Pipersville, PA–SurgeX, a manufacturer of professional surge eliminators and AC power conditioners, has announced that its product line is now RoHS compliant and is the first in this product category to do so.
RoHS stands for ϒRestriction of Hazardous Substancesϒ in electrical and electronic equipment. The RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union and took effect on 1 July 2006. This directive restricts the use of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB), Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) and Hexavalent Chromium.
ϒ”This effort on behalf of SurgeX ownership, engineering, and material procurement has been a long process, but we are extremely proud of this important milestone for our companyϒ,” said Michael McCook, SurgeX senior principal.
Andy Benton, SurgeX director of engineering added that being the first U.S. power conditioner manufacturer to embrace RoHS is rewarding, but that his company’s compliance means more than that. “On the personal level, it makes me happy to think that our products no longer contain harmful materials such as lead and will not pose a threat to future generations,” he said.
SurgeX has been producing AC Power products for the professional A/V marketplace and Industry for more than 13 years.
