The ROHS directive is expected to change in July of 2016, removing exemption 7a, which today allows for high lead content solders to be used for internal solder joints of electronic components. To insure that our Tab Down, Tab Up and Vertical FastJack series (integrated RJ-45 connectors) remain compliant prior to the expected ROHS directive change date we are pleased to announce that effective with date code 1601 through-hole solder process FastJacks will be changed to Lead Free solders.
- There is no part number change (the RL suffix will remain constant).
- There is no change to the Form, Fit or Function of these devices.
The PCN documents provide the entire list of part numbers affected by this PCN.
This PCN does not include our “Pin-In-Paste” series, designed for SMD reflow processes, or our Low Profile series. Additional PCNs will be issued in the near future for the lead free conversion of these series.
