Chicago-based Newark InOne has released a 2007 electronics catalog that is rich with environmentally complaint parts and contains solutions to help customers meet compliance demands. The new catalog employs a green dot to indicate RoHS compliance at the item level. The catalog also includes a 10-step Quality Assurance policy to ensure that its compliant parts are accurately identified. Each compliant part also comes with its own Certificate of RoHS Compliance which can be downloaded from Newark InOne’s website.
While most of the parts in the catalog are RoHS compliant, Newark InOne offers non-compliant parts as well for those manufacturers that are exempt or do not distribute into the European market. The 2,496-page 2007 catalog offers a broad selection of parts from 440 component suppliers. The parts selection is targeted to maintenance and design engineers.
