Lane Motorsport has made available an ultra-miniature 8STA circular connector as well as a range of ultra-lightweight size 01 8STA compatible accessories.
The Souriau size 01 8STA connector offers a significant 20 percent saving in size and weight over the larger size 02 series while maintaining all the performance advantages which includes an anti-vibration design and a high resistance to motorsport fluids.
According to Lane Motorsport, these Souriau size 01 connectors accommodate #26 contacts that can handle wires from 24 to 30 AWG. Other key features of these ultra-miniature connectors include seven colour-coded orientations, PCB options and a boot termination feature.
Lane Motorsport’s size 01 8STA interconnection package features a comprehensive range of connector accessories made by HellermannTyton and Weald Electronics. These include ultra-lightweight protective caps, heat shrink boots, nut plates and gaskets.
Weald Electronics’ size 01 aluminium protective caps feature an anti-vibration locking design and are about 50 percent lighter than the standard size 02 designs. They are available in 14 sizes and two versions for plugs and receptacles. The caps can be supplied with or without a flexible, stainless steel micro wire rope lanyard.
Weald’s size 01 nut plates are profiled to better mirror the shape of the connector flange and are designed to help the assembly process.
HellermannTyton’s size 01 heat shrink boots are exclusively available from us. Available in straight and 90⁰ versions, these are heat shrinkable, strain relieving boots for backshell to cable transitions and are adhesive lined and made from fuel-proof material.
This comprehensive motorsport interconnection package is available to specify and purchase online in our online store.
