RoHS and WEEE Policy


The European Community has passed directives relating to the elimination of hazardous materials (RoHS) and the processing of electronic waste (WEEE).


Proteus products are exempt from the RoHS directive under the Category 9 exemption because they are monitoring and control instruments designed exclusively for industrial or professional use. However, Proteus voluntarily complies with the RoHS requirements for all products introduced after June 2005. The data sheets for these products state that the product is RoHS compliant. Products shipped to China conform with the packaging and labeling requirements of China RoHS. Proteus 100 Series flow switches and 4000 Series flow meters were introduced before June 2005 and are not RoHS compliant; however, they are CE marked because of the Category 9 exemption. For the status of any product, please contact Technical Support.


Proteus products are generally used as a part of stationary large-scale industrial equipment and are thus exempt from the WEEE directive. Proteus has not registered as a producer in any EU country. If your application is not exempt, you or your importer are responsible for compliance. If you have questions about this policy, please contact Jon Heiner at Proteus at (650) 964-4163.
