Souriau's MBG series cylindrical plastic connector has been designed for use in applications requiring a high number of mating cycles and rapid connections and disconnections. The MBG series II meets minimum durability requirements of 5000 mating/unmating cycles by using a unique contact-wiping system consisting of a lubricant-saturated foam pad, bonded to a spring-loaded stripper plate within the receptacle or plug. Upon mating, the stripper plate is pushed deep into the connector, wiping a thin film of lubricant onto the male contacts. A distinctive shape provides mating ease in blind or difficult to reach applications. Typical applications would include test equipment, medical diagnostic equipment, or any of the hardware interconnections found in the modern electronic office.
