Technomad Announces RoHS Compliance For Product Shipments Into Europe

Company expands green strategy in product manufacturing process

BOSTON, December 10, 2008 – Technomad Associates, LLC, a leader in weatherproof loudspeakers and audio systems since 1995, today announced it has altered its manufacturing process to ensure RoHS compliance for sales into the European Union. The complete Technomad product range is now RoHS-compliant, including Technomad IP56-rated weatherproof loudspeakers, the Schedulon automatic mp3 player and recording system, and the company’s PowerChiton series of networkable, weatherproof powered amplifiers.

To comply, Technomad has switched to RoHS-compliant driver and network components for inside its loudspeakers, and eliminated the use of lead within the soldering process. The European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) dictates all electronic components and assemblies sold into Europe must restrict the use of six materials, including lead.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Technomad’s switch to recycled plastic within its loudspeaker manufacturing process, part of the company’s ongoing green initiative in an effort to reduce waste.

“Technomad is consistently seeking new ways to be more environmentally friendly,? said Rodger Von Kries, vice president of Technomad. “We continue to make changes to our manufacturing processes when appropriate, in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint.?

Technomad is the recognized leader in weatherproof loudspeaker systems, featuring integrated, IP56-rated weatherproofing for outdoor and indoor systems that does not compromise acoustic performance. Technomad loudspeakers are available separately or as part of the company range of Turnkey PA systems featuring a signal processing rack with a powered amplifier, six-channel mixer, a dynamic microphone, cables, and additional rack space for external source and power equipment.

The company recently introduced two new non-loudspeaker products to its inventory: Schedulon a new automatic mp3 player and recording system for themed entertainment, high-quality music playback, simulated environments, and commercial security applications; and PowerChiton, a series of compact, durable and weatherproof modules that unite a high-performance, passively-cooled amplifier with an IP56-rated, low-profile enclosure.
