ITT Electronic Components' D-Subminiature connectors achieve compliance with RoHS and DFARS initiatives effective July 1, 2006. D-Subminiature connectors consist of two or more parallel rows of pins or sockets surrounded by a D-shaped shield that protects the components and screens against electromagnetic interference.
The European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive restricts the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, PBB and PBDE in the manufacture of various types of electronics and electrical equipment. The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) encourages domestic sources for specialty metals.
All ITT D-Subminiature product families are now RoHS-compliant or have RoHS-compliant alternates available. The ZD, D*A and MDSM families have been compliant since January 1, 2006. The D*, D*U, GD*, D*M, D*MA, D*JK/D*JT, D*D and 2D product families are now compliant, and many assemblies within these product families have been compliant for some time.
A complete listing of RoHS-compliant assemblies and components is available on ITT, Electronic Components' website at www.ittcannon.com/rohs.
