ISO 80369-7 Fig C.2 Male Reference Luer Slip Connector for testing female Luer Connectors for leakage
ISO 80369-7; Page 24; Annex C; Figure C.2; Note 2 states:
The minimum length of the female taper of 10,5 mm is required for testing non-interconnectable characteristics. A minimum length of the female taper of 7,5 mm may be used for the performance tests of Clause 6.
What they are saying here is that if you use an ISO 594/1 Fig 5 Reference Fitting with a certified length of 7.5mm minimum you can use it 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.2 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 5 Reference Fittings until they wear out or until you cannot convince the oversight party that it is allowed.
From our perspective:
If you request a quote for a new ISO 594/1 Fig 5 Reference Connector from us; we will quote an item which will pass both ISO 594 and ISO 80369-7 requirements. It will be DUO-marked and DUO-certified to both specifications.
ISO 80369-7 Fig C.2 Male Reference Luer Slip Connector
The ISO 80369-7 Fig C.2 Male Reference Luer Slip Connector is used for testing Female 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.2 Male 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 C2 Male Reference Luer Slip Connector is an integral part of Luer needle and syringe testing.
