Flexing Industrial Automation Tray

Part number
Alpha Wire’s objective is to maintain an uninterrupted supply chain for EU RoHS-compliant material. The primary goal is to supply identical form, fit and function wire, cable, and tubing products that meet the EU RoHS directive requirements. Existing and future user specifications, bill of materials, and print specification drawings have also been taken into consideration.

The result is that Alpha Wire has retained the same part numbering. There is no need to change existing product "call outs" when specifying Alpha.

Date of manufacture
Alpha end user customers are able to identify EU RoHS-compliant products before use by the date of manufacture (DOM) located on the product label. The DOM found on the product label can be compared to the EU RoHS Status Effective Date specified in the RoHS Part Number Search Engine. DOM must be the same or greater than the effective date listed to insure EU RoHS compliance.

Labeling
All EU RoHS-compliant Alpha Wire products manufactured after June 1, 2005 include a label indicating EU RoHS compliance identified by the EU RoHS-compliant logo. This label will be present on all wire and cable reels, tubing boxes and wire management packaging.

Marking
All EU RoHS-compliant Alpha Wire cable manufactured after June 1, 2005 is identified on the jacket print legend with the text “RoHS."

Quality assurance
Alpha Wire uses an Energy Disperse X-ray fluorescence spectrometer to audit and sample-inspect finished goods prior to shipment to validate that EU RoHS compliance is maintained in the manufacturing process.

Certificates of compliance
Alpha Wire will provide an EU RoHS Certificates of Compliance upon request for all orders that require this. This documentation is also available at the RoHS Part Number Search Engine.

Packing lists
Any EU RoHS-compliant product shipped from Alpha Wire after June 1, 2005 is identified on all packing lists.

Invoices
All EU RoHS compliant products shipped from Alpha Wire to Alpha Wire distributors after June 1, 2005 are identified on material invoices.

How to order an EU RoHS-compliant product
We suggest that end users and distributors use the following simple procedures to ensure they receive EU RoHS-compliant products when required.

End-user customers
Indicate clearly within the main body or as a line note on your purchase order to Alpha's Distributors "Ship EU RoHS Compliant Product Only". Instruct your manufacturing or receiving departments to verify EU RoHS compliance by:

  • The date of manufacture (DOM) located on the Alpha Wire product label. Consult Alpha's web site RoHS Part Number Search Engine for the EU RoHS Status Effective Date and compare with the DOM to verify compliance. DOM must be the same or greater than the effective date listed to insure EU RoHS compliance.
  • The EU RoHS compliance logo on the product label and on cable products the printed words "RoHS".
  • Consult Alpha's web site RoHS Part Number Search Engine for the date of manufacture (DOM) on products already in your possession since many products were already EU RoHS compliant in 2004 and have been indicated as such on June 1, 2005.

Global supply chain inventory availability
Alpha Wire has worked diligently to qualify 100% of our products as EU RoHS compliant. Alpha Wire Distributors are able to check the inventory for EU RoHS compliant products on Alpha Wire’s Distributor Business Center and EU RoHS can also be verified by Alpha's internal customer service systems. Purchase and inventory allocations of EU RoHS compliant products will be completely separate from non-EU RoHS compliant products.

Alpha end users and distributors worldwide can be assured of a seamless and uninterrupted supply of EU RoHS-compliant products.

China RoHS Availability
At this time, Alpha Wire is investigating the differences between the China and EU RoHS directives. Presently, Alpha does not certify any of our products as being China RoHS compliant.
