New CPC QD Solution Optimizes HPC Liquid Cooling

In this video from SC18, Kristin Anderson from CPC describes the company’s innovative connector couplings for liquid cooling. “PLQ Series QDs are among the highest-performing engineered polymer connectors for liquid cooling applications available. They vastly reduce concerns around plastic QD durability and performance,” said Elizabeth Langer, Senior Design Engineer, Thermal Management. “HPC and data center specifiers and operators can use these plastic QDs with confidence.”

The Right Terminations for Reliable Liquid Cooling in HPC

High performance computing manufacturers are increasingly deploying liquid cooling. To avoid damage to electronic equipment due to leaks, secure drip-free connections are essential. Quick disconnects for HPC applications simplify connector selection. And with expensive electronics at stake, understanding the components in liquid cooling systems is critical. This article details what to look for when seeking the optimal termination for connectors—a way to help ensure leak-free performance.
