To meet the growing demand for environmentally sound components, the company is revamping its circuit protection devices to meet the European Union directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. A three-phase strategy for the upgrade will begin with the introduction of lead-free variations of several product families, the first of which will be the 1206L and 1812L series surface-mount resettable PTCs. All lead-free components have been redesigned or modified to accommodate the higher soldering temperatures and more challenging placement requirements associated with lead-free manufacturing.
