A New Dedicated Production Facility Has Doubled Our Fibre Assembly Capacity

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.

Non-standard Souriau 8D Series/38999 Connectors Assembled and Delivered in Days

Many specifiers and buyers of 8D Series/38999 compliant circular connectors often require standard, off-the-shelf products and generally ask for delivery by return. According to Simon Hammerton, Managing Director at Lane Electronics, a lot of customers will often need a “special” for their application and they have also come to expect a quick turnaround. 

Heat Shrink Boots for Backshell to Cable Transitions Now Available

We have now made available a wide range of heat shrinkable boots designed for strain relieving applications where motorsport connectors have integral backshell and other connector designs use boot adaptor backshells to save weight to cable transitions, as well as in other areas where insulation and component protection are key requirements.
