Samtec and Immersion Cooling

Samtec is continuing to explore and support our customers and partners in immersion cooled applications.

As part of this support, Samtec is testing several series in an immersion cooled environment and comparing those results to a connector operating in an air cooled environment. So far, the results are beating expectations in in Current Carrying Capacity and Dielectric Withstanding Voltage.

To check out these results and to see which series are being tested please click here or email immersion@samtec.com.
