The following ISO standards were recently published:

Subcommittee 4 – Connectors
ISO 6150:2018
Pneumatic fluid power — Cylindrical quick-action couplings for maximum working pressures of 1 MPa, 1,6 MPa, and 2,5 MPa (10 bar, 16 bar, and 25 bar) — Plug connecting dimensions, specifications, application guidelines, and testing

Subcommittee 5 – Control products
ISO 6301-2:2018
Pneumatic fluid power — Compressed-air lubricators — Part 2: Test methods to determine the main characteristics to be included in supplier’s literature

Subcommittee 7 – Sealing devices
ISO 3601-3:2018/Amd 1:2018
Fluid power systems — O-rings — Part 3: Quality acceptance criteria — Amendment 1
