Phoenix Contact offers a significant number of connectors in the M5 to M58 series. Due to the company's ongoing environmentally conscious orientation, it was decided at a very early stage to convert the connectors to a lead-free* variant.
Lead-free defines the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive of the European Parliament to the limit value of 0.1 percent. Lead is a toxic heavy metal that is used in manufacturing because of its easy formability and low melting point for processing.
In the meantime, Phoenix Contact has already converted a large number of connectors to lead-free*. A conversion to almost 100% of the product portfolio is planned by the end of 2022.
Due to this conversion, our customers already have the possibility to purchase electronic connectors according to the upcoming compliance requirements today
If you have any further questions about the lead-free* alternative products from Phoenix Contact, please do not hesitate to contact your contact person in the internal sales department who will be happy to prepare your personal offer.
* The term lead-free refers to the future limit of 0.1 percent in the European Parliament's RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive.back
