CPC expanded its Everis BLQ4 Blind Mate QD Series with seven new standard products featuring SAE and G-thread termination options. These terminations offer customers in Asia Pacific and Europe compatible standard solutions for liquid cooling applications that call for ¼-inch flow and a Cv of approximately 1.3. Like existing products in the series, the new terminations enable integration into liquid cooling systems using a mounted configuration or rack and panel design found in high-performance computing. The chamfer profile and connection tolerances are ideal for applications where operators have obstructed views to connections and disconnections yet still require connection assurance. Made of chrome-plated brass, these connectors feature the same patent pending valve configuration of CPC’s existing Everis LQ and BLQ lines. The BLQ4 blind mate quick disconnect’s multi-lobed seals provide redundant protection against leakage and lasting shape retention during extended periods of connection. These seals also deliver greater sealing efficiency than standard O-rings while requiring minimal force to connect – particularly important if there are multiple blind mate connectors on a panel being connected. Additionally, the Everis Series connector valve design has zero seal friction in the connected state, which helps to make sure that valves close quickly and reliably when the coupling is disconnected.
