Two Technologies Achieves RoHS Compliance
Horsham, Pennsylvania, July 7, 2006 - Two Technologies, Inc., the leading manufacturer of rugged, customizable hand held computers and terminals, announced today that their PSMT, PDS, and Jett® family of hand held computers and the ProMotion, ProTerm, SMT, TechTerm®, HV Series, and 80 Series terminals are now RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant in their standard configurations. The cables and accessories that accompany these products have also been converted to meet this directive.
Under the RoHS directive, European Union member states must ensure that by July 1, 2006, all new commercial, electrical and electronic equipment must be manufactured without hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers.
In May of 2005, Two Technologies dedicated a cross-functional team to achieve RoHS compliance by working with external suppliers and internal personnel to implement, control, document, and ensure conformance to this environmental standard. Over the past year, this program progressed to the point where all RoHS substances have been virtually eliminated (to levels below legal limits) for all Two Technologies electronic products subject to the RoHS Directive, except where it is widely recognized that there is no technically feasible alternative (as indicated by an exemption under the EU RoHS Directive). This compliance will extend to all new product introductions beyond July 2006.
