I have collected documentation showing RoHS compliance for all electrical connectors.

Fans and motors accounted for. Documentation gathered for UL also specified RoHS compliance.

Bolts confirmed aside from:
HD-BT0197 (thumb screw for Aero) - did not see information confirming or denying compliance on manufacturer website.
M5x16 SHCS - listed in flat BOM, but did not have a part number yet, so I could not look it up.

Nuts and washers confirmed aside from:
HD-NT0053 (T-slot nut) - did not see information one way or the other
HD-WA0038 - non catalog item
HD-WA0040 - non catalog item for one of 2 vendors, other vendor lists RoHS compliance.

Non-toolhead electrical complete aside from the following:
EL-MS0247 (black heat shrink tubing) - improperly configured website was blocked
EL-MS0434 (red heat shrink tubing) - improperly configured website was blocked
EL-MS0496 (LCD screen) - no info one way or the other on manufacturer website. @mjpelletier do you have any info on this?
EL-WR0099 - vendor website doesn't have part lookup
EL-WR0040 - vendor website doesn't have part lookup
EL-WR0124 - vendor website doesn't have part lookup

Also, PC-CN0036 was the first thing that I have been able to find data on that was compliant with an exemption (6(c)) instead of just compliant. Still have not found anything not to be compliant, of everything I have found data for.

@samantha for the touchscreen on the last page it has a drawing and in the notes it calls out RoHS compliance
http://www.haoyuelectronics.com/Attachment/HY5-LCD-HD/KD50G21-40NT-A1.pdf

@west awesome, thank you for pointing that out!

Initial run through of flat BOM complete, here is everything currently missing (as noted above and more). Nothing has been found to not be compliant yet. Items on this list simply lack documentation available on-line and require further digging. This mostly comes down to how the vendors website is, so these will be broken out into vendors for organization as we likely just need to contact them. There are still several items in the BOM without part numbers, so those will need to be looked into later once I can look them up.

Igus (Website has a certification document linked on the product pages, but while it calls out a lot of part numbers, it doesn't call out these specifically nor has wording that would cover them)
HD-BU0029 (12mm bearing)
HD-BU0030 (10mm bearing)
HD-BU0039 (10mm self aligning bearing)
HD-RD0018 (10mm x500 rod)
HD-RD0061 (10mm x405 rod)
HD-RD0066 (12mm x540 rod)
HD-RD0070 (6mm x65 rod) - no vendor product code in system, so couldn't look up from vendor

IPtech/Futura (only one confirmed part number in BOM, but applies to all extrusions for frame)
HD-EX0062 (500mm extrusion)
HD-NT0053 (T-slot nut)

E3D (no RoHS info on site I could find, includes but is not limited to the following)
HD-BT0197 (thumb screw for Aero)
PP-FP0135 (aero idler lever)
PP-FP0136 (filament guide)
PP-MP0205 (pinion gear)
AS-HE0035 (aero standard)
AS-HE0036 (aero mirrored)

Electronics Distributors Corp. (improperly configured website was blocked)
EL-MS0247 (black heat shrink tubing)
EL-MS0434 (red heat shrink tubing)
HD-MS0058 (zip ties)

Aero-Space Fasteners and Hardware (formerly Colorado Electronic Hardware) (website doesn't have part lookup)
HD-MS0336 (rubber feet)
EL-WR0099 (shielded 4 conductor 22awg cable)
EL-WR0040 (single conductor 20AWG wire, red)
EL-WR0124 (16AWG wire green/yellow stripe)

Allen Scientific Glass, Inc.
HD-MS0002-3 (glass build plate)

JSB Great Bearings
HD-MS0411 (bearing) - information not on vendor website

Fastenall
HD-WA0038 (M3 washer) - non catalog item
HD-WA0040 (M5 washer) - non catalog item, has another vendor listed in system that is fine.
HD-MS0055 (M5 screw press fit thumb-screw cap) - non catalog item, has another vendor listed in system that is fine.

OCA issues:
HD-MS0287 (spacer) - non-catalog for Fastenall, other vendor doesn't have website listed in system
HD-MS0349 (PEI sheet) - no vendor info in system

@west has received a document from IGUS covering:
HD-BU0029 (12mm bearing)
HD-BU0030 (10mm bearing)
HD-RD0070 (6mm x65 rod)

For Quiver parts from IGUS, this leaves:
HD-BU0039 (10mm self aligning bearing)
HD-RD0018 (10mm x500 rod)
HD-RD0061 (10mm x405 rod)
HD-RD0066 (12mm x540 rod)

Does anyone have any feedback on this statement regarding the aluminum extrusions? "Per Page 8 of the catalog (https://www.tslots.com/all-new-catalog/), extrusions from our supplier are 6560 or equivalent aluminum alloy. Since the specification for 6560 does not include any materials in concentration exceeding RoHS requirements, all aluminum extrusions from our vendor are inherently RoHS compliant."

@mjpelletier has contacted ultimachine to request documentation.

@kim is working on contacting other suppliers.

HD-BU0039 is now accounted for, thanks to @nickp

Ultimachine has responded saying they should have a certification document for us soon.

tutley reassigned this task from tutley to samantha.Oct 16 2018, 10:55 AM
tutley added a subscriber: tutley.

Ultimachine has provided a document covering RoHS compliance for every board they provide for us, which I have filed with the rest of the RoHS documents.

@samantha what else are we missing for this ticket? Anything?

@kim said she was able to get a lot of the missing things while I was out, and will be sending them to me later once I have caught up on emails.

We now have documentation for:

HD-BU0039 (10mm self aligning bearing)
HD-MS0411 (bearing)
HD-MS0336 (rubber feet)
EL-WR0099 (shielded 4 conductor 22awg cable)
EL-WR0040 (single conductor 20AWG wire, red)
EL-WR0124 (16AWG wire green/yellow stripe)
HD-EX0062 (500mm extrusion)
HD-NT0053 (T-slot nut)
(all additional futura industries extrusions/hardware/parts)
HD-RD0018 (10mm x500 rod)
HD-RD0061 (10mm x405 rod)
HD-RD0066 (12mm x540 rod)

From the previous list, we still need:

E3D (no RoHS info on site I could find, includes but is not limited to the following)
HD-BT0197 (thumb screw for Aero)
PP-FP0135 (aero idler lever)
PP-FP0136 (filament guide)

Once the BOM is more finalized we will want to go through it again, since not everything was captured in looking through the incomplete BOM. For example, I know there are IGUS cable chains that need to be looked at which weren't included.

We have received documentation for HD-MS0002-3

We have received documentation for EL-MS0247

for the t slot cover hd-ex0093 https://www.mcmaster.com/5537T15 mcmaster states it as compliant. do we need other documentation for that?

@west that is enough I just need to get it logged. Missed it because I didn't know the supplier or supplier part number. Thanks!

we now have documentation for:

We have received documentation covering all Igus supplied cable chains

All E3D items now have documentation

KT-HB0013 now has documentation

@samantha can you make a list of items we don't have info for and we can see if purchasing can get that?

@DaniAO

Here is the list, which includes a few items for the mini 2 as well, which was most recently sent to purchasing on 1/8, from which I have removed the couple of items that we have received documentation for since then.

@jperry @kim would you be able to help get the RoHS information for the remaining items listed?

kim added a comment.Feb 26 2019, 8:52 AM

Hello, I will go through the list again and request. I do see that Actuonix EL-MS0513 (micro linear actuator) was purchased once, for review by R&D do we still need Rohs compliance for it? Its not on a BoM. some other p/ns might not be on BoMs, do they need Rohs info?

@kim I think that part is now the EL-MS0530. I did not realize it had changed part numbers. Everything listed here should be on the quiver and/or hibiscus BoMs.

EL-MS0434 (red heat shrink tubing) now has documentation logged

Documentation received and logged for:
HD-MS0471
HD-TB0007
EL-MS0536 (this is the actual part number for the actuonix actuator)

as well as DC-LB0094 from that latest list, from the mini 2

Documentation for DC-LB0153 (protective earth sticker).

HD-MS0310 received and logged

We can now check off the following:
HD-EX0092
HD-EX0090

Documentation for HD-MS0062.

Attached is the documentation for the following labels

DC-LB0154 (caution hot sticker)
DC-LB0155 (caution hot sticker 0.5mm)
DC-LB0156 (electric warning sticker)

@jperry can you clarify which part numbers are for which document?

Also, the second document, Glossy_Label_Bopp_40#.pdf lists 3 materials but only specifies 2 of them as RoHS compliant. I think the material itself is fine, but unless there is something I am not aware of this leaves the document lacking as proof of full RoHS compliance on that part.

HD-MS0311 documentation received and added to the pile

EL-MS0531 documentation received

documentation received for PP-FP0087, the purchased material used for AS-PR0023
