Products Overview

Our products play a key role in sustainability by making the world safer, smarter and more productive.

Each day our products work behind the scenes to make a difference: our advanced sensors consume less power and force our sensors used in alternative energy systems such as windmills; our weighing solutions help manufacturers increase productivity and reduce waste; and our systems speed the development of new metal alloys that make cars lighter and use less energy.

We further consider environmental criteria in the development of new products, including raw materials to reduce environmental footprint and reduce hazardous and toxic substances, in distribution and life cycle.

Conflict Minerals

Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) is concerned with the unintentional support of armed conflict through the purchase of 3T&G minerals from the DRC and countries that share its border (the DRC region).

We take the following steps to determine the use, source, and origin of 3T&G minerals in our global product portfolio across our business segments. We use a documented reasonable country of origin inquiry and continue to:

  • Work closely with our suppliers to determine the potential use of 3T&G minerals in our supply chain and, when appropriate, work with them to remediate issues and source more responsibly.
  • Expect our 3T&G suppliers to conduct the necessary inquiry and, where appropriate, additional due diligence to provide us with confirmation of the source of the materials used in their processes and ultimately present in our products.

We also commit to institute procedures and governance processes to ensure proper implementation of these objectives across the company.

Our actions on conflict minerals support VPG's commitment to respect the human rights of all people and to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.


REACH, the most significant change in the European Union’s (EU) chemical management history, went into effect in June 2007. While REACH started out as an EU regulation, it has been adopted in similar formats by other countries including China, India and Korea and applies to materials coming into the region from around the world, making the law a global compliance matter.

Vishay Precision Group, Inc. is aware of its REACH obligations to specifically provide information on substance identity, classification and labelling to ECHA for chemical substances placed on the market. Vishay Precision Group, Inc. continues to actively monitor REACH requirements to prevent supply-chain disruption and encourage eco-friendly manufacturing.


RoHS Compliance means conformity to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and the Council of 8 June 2011 and to the amended Annex in Directive (EU) 2015/863 of 31 March 2015, on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. It restricts the use of certain substances: lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ether, bis (2-ethyhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).

On July 22, 2019 restrictions came into force for 4 phthalates – bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) to the list of restricted substances in Annex II to Directive 2011/65/EU. The change also adds a new Category 11- Other Electrical and Electronic Equipment Not Covered by any other category that includes electrical cables that are less than 250V.


Vishay Precision Group (VPG) recognizes the environmental concerns caused by lead. The majority of VPG's products are lead-free. VPG intends to continue to meet all requirements regarding region and country specific regulations regarding lead in products, and will work closely with its customers to meet their specifications regarding it.
