BANTAMATE 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. On 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. Some typical applications would include test equipment, medical diagnostic equipment, or any of the hardware interconnections found in the modern electronic office.
