ISO/TR 16194:2017 provides general procedures for assessing the reliability of pneumatic fluid power components using accelerated life testing and the method for reporting the results. These procedures apply to directional control valves, cylinders with piston rods, pressure regulators, and accessory devices ? the same components covered by the ISO 19973 series of standards.
ISO/TR 16194:2017 does not provide specific procedures for accelerated life testing of components. Instead, it explains the variability among methods and provides guidelines for developing an accelerated test method.
The methods specified in this document apply to the first failure, without repairs.
