MGT-5015 Reverse Bayonet Coupling
The MGT line of connectors is an expansion of the GT-5015 series, offering a rugged environment connector in new finishes such as Durmalon and Black Zinc Nickel for military applications. Available with press-fit or crimp removable contacts, these connectors use machined shells that can be customized for any design to meet a specific application’s needs. Termination options include crimp, solder, PC tail, threaded, or custom-designed bus bars. Upgraded socket contacts include the RADSOK® high current sockets and Amphenol’s exciting new Temper-Grip socket, which carries more current than a standard contact at higher temperatures than a RADSOK.
Features & Benefits:
- Quick positive coupling
- Waterproof–IP67 rated
- High shock and vibration capabilities
- Numerous military and commercial finishes available
- Rated for 2000 mating cycles
- Up to 50% more ampacity with the use of RADSOK
- Customized solutions available
Low Contact Engagement/Separation Forces:
The hyperbolic lamella socket contact construction distributes normal forces over a high percentage of mating pin surface. This creates a smooth, even engagement effort. This force distribution also contributes to excellent performance in vibration applications with resistance to typical fretting corrosion.
Low Contact Resistance:
The large interface area between the socket lamella and pin surface results in very low contact resistance, enabling the RADSOK® contacts’ high current rating compared to traditional power contact designs.
High Mating Cycle Durability:
RADSOK contacts with typical silver plating finishes have demonstrated the survival of 20,000 mating cycles. Even with continuous exposure to harsh environmental abuse (salt, sand, and high humidity). RADSOK contacts have been tested to maintain low contact resistance beyond 10,000 mating cycles.

High Temperature Capability:
For use in high temperature (200 C+) applications, the Temper-grip socket has been tested to maintain current capability in high-temperature situations where standard mil-spec socket contacts can begin to relax.
Proven design utilizing a stainless steel napkin ring to prevent the beryllium copper tines from “relaxing” at higher temperatures and maintaining a greater area of true contact in all situations to decrease resistance.
