QSI Offers RoHS-Compliant Operator Interface and Mobile Data Terminals

Salt Lake City, Utah. 10 August 2006. QSI Corporation, a manufacturer of operator interface and mobile data terminals, now offers terminals complying with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive. Most versions of the popular QTERM®-G55 handheld graphic terminal are now RoHS compliant.

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive states that, as of 1 July 2006, non-exempt electrical and electronic equipment shipped to the European Union may not contain lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls or polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

"Complying with the RoHS Directive represented a unique challenge to QSI," said Jim Elwell, President of QSI. "Our business model of providing semi-custom terminals means that for any model, such as the QTERM-G55, we literally have thousands of variations that must comply with the directive."

QSI recognizes many customers will require RoHS-compliant terminals in the near future. In 2004, the company began efforts toward meeting this objective. QSI is continuously working to convert most terminal models to meet RoHS standards. Certain terminal models and options are currently available in RoHS versions, with other models being added on a regular basis. If you require an RoHS-compliant terminal, please contact QSI with your terminal model number or required specifications to determine availability.
