Icron Technologies Corporation, now part of Maxim Integrated, is committed to ensuring our products comply with safety measures, laws and regulations stipulated by each of the countries we serve when used for their intended purpose. Below is a brief overview of the our policies relating to RoHS, WEEE, REACH and Conflict Minerals, noting Icron’s products are not EN60601 medically certified.
RoHS and RoHS2
As a manufacturer of electronic equipment, Icron Technologies recognizes the need for responsible design and manufacturing processes that minimize the impact on our environment. To this end, Icron Technologies strives to meet and maintain compliance with the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive (2002/95/EC and 2011/65/EU) for its products. For more information, please refer to the following document: Icron Technologies – Letter of RoHS2 Compliance.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive (2002/96/EC) aims to reduce electrical and electronic waste in the environment. It applies to all companies that manufacture, sell, or distribute electrical and electronic equipment in the European Union. Icron Technologies strives to minimize environmental impact through compliance with this Directive.
REACH, or the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, is a European Union regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) that came into force on June 1, 2007 to address the production and use of chemical substances. Icron Technologies, as a manufacturer of articles, is committed to reducing negative impacts on both human health and the environment.
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act was signed into United States of America law on July 21, 2010 as a measure to curtail rebel groups in and around the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from illegally profiting through inhumane mining practices. This act requires annual reporting by publicly traded US companies on the use of “3TG” (tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold) minerals. As a privately held Canadian corporation, Icron is not subject to Conflict Minerals reporting requirements. However, we fully support ending violence and human rights violations associated in the mining of 3TG and, as a supplier to publicly traded companies, are committed to assisting our global customers comply with their reporting requirements.
We actively survey our supplier base regarding the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition’s (EICC) Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) and expects all suppliers to be in compliance with Dodd-Frank regulations. Any areas of non-compliance will result in supply termination. Based on provided information from our supply base, we are pleased to declare to the best of our knowledge, all our products are in compliance with Dodd-Frank Conflict Mineral regulations.
The AIA (Automated Imaging Association) published a USB 3.0 based camera interface for machine vision applications called USB3 Vision. USB 3.0 cameras can easily be extended with Icron’s USB 3.0 extender products: the USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022 extender up to 100 meters over OM3 multimode fiber, or the award winning 15 meter USB 3.0 Spectra 3001-15 active copper cable. Both extender models follow the USB3 Vision specification for locking USB connectors. Icron’s ExtremeUSB® Vision Interoperability program validates which camera/interface manufacturers and USB 3.0 camera brands can be successfully extended by both Spectra products. Read more »
