Hydraulic Fluid Power — Dimensions and Requirements of Quick-Action Couplings Standard Updated

ISO 7241:2014 which specifies the interface dimensions and basic performance requirements for two series of hydraulic quick-action couplings has recently been published.

This Standard provides users of hydraulic components with a standardized method to help reduce the environmental impact of fluid power components and systems.

The two series of hydraulic quick-action couplings are in widespread use and have similar technological advantages. Series A is used predominantly in Europe and is preferred worldwide for agricultural and forestry machinery, and also specifies additional requirements for use in agricultural machinery applications covered in ISO 5675. Series B is used predominantly in North America and in the chemical industry.

You can search using one or more of the following parameters: topic, developer, title, scope and document number. Search results will provide you with additional information about each standard, including its scope, current status, price and the committee involved.
