Compatibility/Interchangeability Between ISO 594/1 Figure 4 and ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5
The ISO 594/1 Figure 4 Female Reference Conical Fitting is replaced by ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector. The ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5 is not identical to the ISO 594/1 Figure 4 Reference Fitting, so it cannot be certified as ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5. The good news is that the ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector is backward compatible with the ISO 594/1 Figure 4 Reference Fitting; so it can be certified and used in ISO 594/1 designated testing.
For those who just need to know the full details...
The minimum conical length changed from the ISO 594/1 Figure 4 requirement of 7.5mm minimum; to the ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5 requirement of 10.5mm minimum. I think it is obvious to see that an ISO 80369-7 Figure C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector with a certified minimum length of 10.5 will always meet the ISO 594/1 Figure 4 Female Reference Conical Fitting requirement of 7.5mm minimum.
Escape Clause: ISO 80369-7; Page 30; Annex C; Figure C.5; Note states: The minimum length of the male taper of 10,5 mm is required for testing non-interconnectable characteristics. A minimum length of the male taper of 7,5 mm may be used for the performance tests of Clause 6.
What they are saying here is that an ISO 594/1 Fig 4 Reference Fitting with a certified length of 7.5mm minimum can be utilized for all of the tests of ISO 80369-7 Paragraph/Clause 6, but if you sent that Reference fitting out to be certified to match ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 it will fail because it does not meet the 10.5mm minimum. This escape Clause will allow you to use your old ISO 594/1 Fig 4 Reference Fittings until they wear out or until you cannot convince the oversight party that it is allowed.
ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector
The ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector is used for testing Male Luer Connectors for: Leakage; Separation from axial load; Stress cracking; and Non-interconnectable characteristics in the ISO 80369-7; Clause 6 specified tests. Keeping with the requirements of ISO 80369-7; the Reference Connectors we sell are from hardened stainless steel. The ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector has design details which are not specified in ISO 80369-7 and which allow connection to test equipment. These design details vary by manufacturer so be sure you understand the configuration before you order the Reference Connector. The ISO 80369-7 Fig C.5 Female Reference Luer Slip Connector is an integral part of Luer needle and syringe testing.
