Abstract 

ISO 9170-1:2008 applies to:

  1. terminal units intended for use in medical gas pipeline systems in accordance with ISO 7396-1, for use with the following medical gases:
    • oxygen,
    • nitrous oxide;
    • medical air;
    • carbon dioxide;
    • oxygen/nitrous oxide mixture [50 %/50 % (by volume)];
  2. terminal units intended for use in medical gas pipeline systems in accordance with ISO 7396-1, for use with the following gases and services:
    • oxygen-enriched air;
    • air for driving surgical tools;
    • nitrogen for driving surgical tools;
    • vacuum.

It is intended especially to ensure the gas-specific assembly of terminal units and to prevent their interchange between different gases and services.

ISO 9170-1:2008 specifies requirements for terminal units for supply and disposal of nitrogen or air for driving surgical tools and requirements for probes intended to be connected to the gas-specific connection point which is part of the terminal unit.
