Lane Motorsport Have Made Available Souriau Size 01 8STA Connectors and Accessories Capable of Significantly Reducing Weight, Space and Assembly Time
Lane Motorsport, our division devoted to electrical connectors for motorsport, has made available Souriau’s tiny size 01 8STA circular connector series, matching it with a range of ultra-light size 01-compatible accessories.
The size 01 8STA circular connector series offers a significant 20% saving in size and weight over size 02 8STA connectors, while at the same time maintaining all the performance advantages of the larger model, including resistance to motorsport fluids and an integral anti-vibration design.
Souriau’s size 01 connectors comprise three removable #26 contacts capable of handling wires from 24 to 30 AWG. Additional features include seven colour-coded orientations, PCB options and a boot termination feature. The 8STA connectors have a rugged aluminium body plated with conductive black zinc as standard, as well as a positive locking mechanism. Lane Motorsport have also made available a single flange version, which offers even greater weight-saving possibilities.
Lane Motorsport’s accessories range includes protective caps, gaskets, nut plates and heat shrink boots products made by HellermannTyton and Weald Electronics.
Weald Electronics’ size 01 aluminium protective caps are approximately 50 percent lighter than the standard size 02 and include an anti-vibration locking design. They are available in versions for plugs and receptacles and can be supplied with or without a flexible, stainless steel micro wire rope lanyard.
HellermannTyton’s size 01 heat shrink boots are available exclusively from Lane Motorsport. Available in straight and 90⁰ versions, these strain-relieving boots for backshell to cable transitions are adhesive lined and made from fuel-proof material.
