RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances

The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment". This Directive will ban the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of 6 substances beginning 1 July 2006.

Cadmium (Cd)

Mercury (Hg)

Lead (Pb)

Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+)

Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBB)

Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE)

The extraction of these raw materials and their eventual disposal can cause damage to both the environment in terms of pollution, as well as to human health from occupational exposure and exposure following disposal. The removal of these materials from production will reduce the health risks of exposure, particularly for children, the elderly and pregnant women. As a global power solution provider, iStarUSA takes parts in supporting advanced green technology to provide more energy-efficient and cost-effective power solutions to preserve and protect our earth.

Green Technology Today

iStarUSA brings quality, reliability, and technology to power solution that meets the challenge tomorrow, and we do so while preserve and protect our living environment.

RoHS Compliance Material

To be RoHS compliance, new alloys must be used to replace the current supply that contains Lead. As well as printed circuit boards, transformers, switches, other electrical and mechanical components must meet RoHS standard. All components from our vendors have submitted laboratory test report about the composition and material used.

RoHS Compliance Manufacturing Process

The manufacturing process and production environment also have to meet the RoHS standard. RoHS inventory stocks in different location with different model number. The RoHS production line and materials used must be separated to avoid possibility of mixing or misuse non-RoHS with RoHS compliance components.

Testing and Quality Assurance

The RoHS free components and finished products also have been tested for quality assurance. Performance analysis and stress burn-in test has been conducted to ensure product functionality and durability. Every components and parts from selection, inventory, and assembly have follow RoHS directive. We have proven ISO 9001 quality standard for every iStarUSA products.
