As well as provide a wide range of standard QPL connectors from Souriau's 8D Series for same-day dispatch, we can also specify a much wider choice of supply from our massive connector piece parts inventory, with delivery on short lead times and the same full QPL Certification at no extra cost.
Connectors used in the aerospace, military and defence sectors have to meet an array of reliability, performance and quality standards, including circular connectors to MIL-DTL-38999 and high-density rectangular rack and panel connector systems such as Souriau’s ARINC 600 Series, all of which we stock, as well as connectors by manufacturers including Positronic, Huber+Suhner, HellermannTyton and Nicomatic.
Weight, contact density and stringent adherence to standards are key to aerospace connector systems.
As a Souriau-approved assembler, Lane are able to provide a wide variety of high density circular connectors, with many meeting the requirements of the MIL-DTL-38999 standard, and others being derived from that standard. In particular, we have available Souriau’s standard high density 8D/38999 connectors and their 8STA range which is widely used throughout all forms of motorsport and other applications where space, weight and environmental protection are crucial.
We have now launched a new fibre optic assembly facility which will handle the significant increase in demand for high performance fibre-based interconnection solutions that we have been experiencing. As well as fibre-optic patch cords and jump leads the new 1300ft² facility will also be equipped to help customers with their specific fibre optic connector assembly designs.
We would like to announce that customers can now specify and purchase an increasingly wide selection of 8D Series / MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and accessories from our online store at www.fclane.com/store.
Significant investment in our tooling and inventory levels will ensure that customers for Souriau’s 8STA High Density (HD) Series of circular connectors will soon not have to wait for prototypes and small quantities beyond a few days.
FC Lane's Managing Director Simon Hammerton discusses our client's need for unique electrical connector solutions, such as customer-specific fibre-optic cable assemblies, that are always in high-demand and for which we are always increasing our capacity.
As a leading distributor of electrical and electronic connector products we are able to supply a range of circular connectors that meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999 SERIES III, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding applications.
