Cryo Sample Receiver with 13 electrical Contacts

Product code: RECOMCREC13

Common flag style holders do not reproducibly snap into position, nor do they have electrical contacts. With this design, we are adding the possibility of wiring up devices on flag style holders to up to 13 electrical contacts.
This particulair version is optimized for cryogenic applications.
The receiver is equipped with a pressure plate that can be screwed tightly to the sample plate using the pincer on the wobblestick usually present to handle the sample. By tightening the screw, an angled surface presses onto the side of the sample plate, forcing it down.
An improved  thermal contact to the cooling surface is achieved and the temperature difference between the sample and the receiver is only about 2 Kelvin, as shown in the document "Thermal Conductance Datasheet" below.

Please contact us for a detailed discussion of your requirements.
