Lane Motorsport Showcasing Electronic Connectors and Accessories at Autosport Engineering 2020

Autosport Engineering 2020

Our motorsport division Lane Motorsport will be showcasing our comprehensive package of electronic connectors and accessories at the Autosport Engineering show at the NEC (we will be at stand E760) in January this year.

Visitors will be able to see and talk to us about the latest connectors manufactured by Souriau and Nicomatic, and connector accessories from HellermannTyton and Weald Electronics. These are connectors systems capable of handling anything that motorsport could thow at them, with an accessory package created to reduce time and money during development, installation and replacement.

As a leading assembling distributor for Souriau, themselves a leader in the manufacture of interconnection products used throughout the motorsport sector, Lane Motorsport will be showcasing Souriau's 8STA circular connectors, which are used for wide application connecting engine control units, communications equipment, data acquisition systems, fuel pumps, starters, alternators and batteries throughout all levels of motorsport. Souriau also manufacture the microComp® series of high-density rectangular connectors, which are lighter than micro-D and standard D-subminiature connectors and hence ideal for applications where space and weight are an important consideration.

Also part of Lane Motorsport’s interconnection package is the Nicomatic EMM series. With a 1.27mm pitch, the EMM series achieves more than a 40% space reduction in comparison to Nicomatic’s established CMM series or as much as 20% when compared to standard MicroD connector systems. Designed to meet the performance requirements of MIL-DTL-83513, the connectors integrate features including reversed contacts, 90° back protection and interchangeable hardware.

Along with these connectors, Weald Electronics, a sister company of FC Lane, produces a range of ultra-lightweight 8STA compatible accessories such as protective caps, gaskets, nut plates and all the assembly tools required. They also provide a custom connector modification service that takes a standard product and alters its size and weight as per the requirements of the customer.

Many of HellermannTyton’s heat shrink moulded boots, stocked by Lane, are made specifically for motorsport. At Autosport Engineering 2020 we will display standard boots, glue lined boots, high temperature boots for fuel tank applications, both straight and right-angled variants and the very popular VG9500 twin pack epoxy used to glue standard boots.

Recognising the “special” needs of motorsport in all its forms, Lane Motorsport, can respond rapidly to requests for product regardless of quantity or how “unusual” the specification. Lane Motorsport has at its disposal an almost limitless stock of the multitude of parts needed to build the connector as well as the facilities to assemble the finished product on demand.

If you can’t get to the NEC for the Autosport Engineering show, this comprehensive motorsport interconnection package is available to specify and purchase online.
