ISO 80369-6:2016 Reference Connectors and ISO 80369-20:2015 Test Equipment

ISO 80369-6:2016 Clause

Required Annex of ISO 80369-20:2015

Enersol equipment required

Requried Enersol reference connectors for testing

Neuraxial small-bore connectors


Clause 6 - all sub-clauses

Annex B through I requires the assembly of the appropriate reference connector (i.e. from ISO 80369- 6 Annex C) with the test sample, using a specified

force and torque to assemble them.


S15A - Connector assembly device


Any/all reference connectors

Clause 6.1.1 - Fluid leakage requirement

Evaluate using EITHER leakage by pressure decay, or positive pressure liquid leakage. It is inferred the same method is used after the stress cracking conditioning.

KEY: FC = Female Connector MC = Male Connector

* = There is an error in ISO 80369-6:2016 Clause 6.3. This clause states that the connectors shall meet the requirements of Clause 6.1.2 after stress cracking. This reference to Clause 6.1.2 is a mistake that is intended to b

corrected. Clause 6.3 should state Clause 6.1.1 instead of Clause 6.1.2. Clause 6.1.1 requires either Clause 6.1.2 (Leakage by pressure decay) or 6.1.3 (Positive pressure liquid leakage) be used. There will be an update to correct the reference to Clause 6.1.1 in due course.
