We are very excited to bring you details of the new ultra-miniature shell size 01 8STA Series connector from Souriau. It’s certainly the smallest connector with the biggest performance.
We are very pleased to be announced as a Silver level supplier to BAE Systems. During 2019, we achieved a 99.85% quality rating and a 98.00% delivery rating thanks to our in-house connector assembly.
In the motorsport market electronics are increasingly being used, while at the same time space and weight constraints are becoming more and more important, with dependability an additional must. It's for this reason that the Souriau 8STA series are so highly coveted. The 8STA series are miniature circular connectors designed to be smaller and lighter with high-reliability features that ensure race performance and driver safety.
At this year’s Defence & Security Equipment International Event (DSEI), we will once more demonstrate that we are the market leaders in the supply of electrical, electronic and optical connector systems for the demanding defence and security sector. The event will be taking place at ExCel London on 10th-13th September, and you will be able to find us at Stand S3-337.
Lane Electronics has become Souriau’s first distributor approved to assemble the 8STA and D38999 High Density 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.
Once again Lane Motorsport will be at the PMW 2018 (stand number 6066) in Cologne where we will be showcasing our comprehensive portfolio of 8STA connectors and compatible accessories. Amongst the stock on show will be the tiny size 01 8STA series and modified connectors remodelled to suit our customer’s specific applications.
Our Motorsport division have now made available Souriau 8STA high power circular connectors which are designed for specific applications where high performance, small size and light weight are key factors, such as the motorsport sector.
We can now supply from stock a comprehensive portfolio of Souriau 8D/38999 connectors, derivatives and accessories.
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.

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.
Lane Electronics will once again be one of the exhibitors at the bi-annual Defence and Security Show (DSEI) taking place this September (12th - 15th) at London’s ExCel Exhibition Centre.
Souriau, the leading manufacturer of 38999 military connectors and 8STA motorsport connectors, is 100 years old and, as a Souriau-assembling distributor, we have been part of their story for more than 30 years. Watch our video!
We are happy to announce the appointment of Mick Varley as Sales Director. He takes over from long-standing Sales Director Pat Jarman who remains in an advisory capacity until his retirement in early 2018.
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.
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.
After another good practice session at Donington Park, Sam Osborne had every reason to feel confident going into the three-race fixture that made up the second weekend of the 2016 Thundersport GB season. Unfortunately for Sam and many other competitors, the weather had other ideas. Sam, who rides for the leading Suzuki specialist tuning and racing team MSG Racing, is sponsored by The Motorsport Division of Lane Electronics.
A first in class, a second in class and two top ten finishes overall represents a fantastic start to the 2016 season by our sponsored Thundersport 600 Sportsman competitor Sam Osborne. 24-year-old Sam, who rides for the leading tuning and racing team MSG Racing, modestly described the first race weekend of the season at Brands Hatch as a “testing weekend with extreme conditions... but I am very happy to get my first win of the season and put some points on the board”.
Successful off-season practice and testing as well as a bike that “promises to give a few more mph” all suggest that Thundersport 600 Sportsman competitor Sam Osborne is set to have a great year. 24-year-old Sam, who rides for the leading tuning and racing team MSG Racing, is also sponsored by The Motorsport Division of Lane Electronics.
