As data centers and high performance computing continue to drive demand for higher densities and increased efficiency, liquid cooling is expanding as a method of thermal management. System and Information Technology Equipment (ITE) providers must now work to incorporate fluid handling components alongside critical electronic equipment.
Connectors are crucial to the safe and reliable operation of these systems; however, the appropriate specifications for these components are often poorly understood.
Well-designed fluid connectors used in liquid cooling:
- Easily facilitate connection, disconnection and rerouting of fluid though computing clusters.
- Support 100 percent uptime during installation, reconfiguration and maintenance.
- Allow secure, efficient, reliable and leak-free management fluids within the liquid cooling system.
In specifying connectors for a cooling system, the characteristics and performance parameters outlined in this CPC report are useful in ensuring the components will function optimally relative to overall system requirements — particularly in HPC and data center environments.
