Design Chain Associates, a San Francisco firm that help companies comply with environmental regulations, will present a webinar on the changes brought about by the RoHS recast. The two-hour webinar will take place at 10:00 PST on February 2. The cost is $199 and you can register here.
The Recast of the RoHS Directive was approved by the European Parliament on November 24, 2010. Design Chain Associates will provide an in-depth, 2 hour review of the significant changes, which in all likelihood will be approved by the Council during 2011, and what your company must do to be compliant. This is a detailed analysis, not a superficial overview.
What you will learn:
What was approved
Differences from the current RoHS Directive
Specific CE requirements
Reading between the lines: what you won’t get from reading the document
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
