[FAQ] Why does a temperature sensor or humidity sensor device part number have the –E4 or –G4 suffix?

In short, there is no environmental difference between a device labeled TMPxxx-G4, LMxxx-G4, HDCxxxx-G4 or any of those devices having a -E4 as the suffix instead.

Historically, G4 and E4 suffixes meant that the devices were rated to be "Green" or "Lead Free." However, as time has passed, all devices have been pushed to these new "Green" or "Lead Free" standards, but the part numbers have remained available so that customers have had a consistent orderable part number.

To check on the "Green" status of a part, you can put your part number into the search at the following link:
