Icron Technologies Corporation – a Maxim Integrated Brand, 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 RoHS2, IEC/UL/CSA 62368-1, 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 products comply with the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directives (2002/95/EC and 2011/65/EU + 2015/863/EU). Each finished product model has its own EU Declaration of Conformity whereas embedded OEM products are covered by a blanket declaration letter. For more information, please contact Icron.
IEC/UL/CSA 62368-1 is a hazard-based product safety standard for Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and Audio Video (AV) equipment that supersedes the outgoing IEC/UL/CSA 60950-1 standard. Effective December 20, 2020 Icron extenders as a complete system together with their external power supplies have 62368-1 certification as noted in each model’s EU Declaration of Conformity.
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. REACH substances are updated typically twice each year. Icron is in compliance with REACH and covered under our parent company Maxim’s REACH declaration letter.
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 and Icron is covered under our parent company Maxim’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) and declaration letter.
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 »
