Congratulating Souriau On 100 Years of Making Quality Electrical Connectors; Our Video Tribute


Congratulating Souriau On 100 Years of Making Quality Electrical Connectors; Our Video Tribute

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.

However, rather than send them a birthday card, we thought we'd put together a short video to congratulate them on this sizeable achievement. You can watch this video below:

As you will see, we hold massive stocks of standard connectors for rapid delivery and connector parts for rapid assembly. These include Souriau 38999 SERIES 1 and SERIES III connectors as well as Souriau 8STA connectors.

Souriau’s 38999 connectors are available in a wide range of shell materials including aluminium, composite, marine bronze and stainless steel and we can supply these MIL-DTL-38999 connectors in different finishes including RoHS compliant, black Zinc Nickel and Zinc Cobalt plating. We can also supply standard 38999 connectors with all the usual contact types and can also assemble custom connectors that incorporate signal, power, high power, coax, triax, quadrax and Elio fibre optic contacts from its substantial stock profile of Souriau 38999 products and piece parts.

Lane Motorsport recently announced the ultra-miniature Souriau size 01 8STA motorsport connector which offers a significant 20 percent saving in size and weight over the popular size 02 series while maintaining all the size 02 performance advantages – including the anti-vibration design and the high resistance to motorsport fluids. 

These Souriau size 01 connectors accommodate three removable #26 contacts that can handle wires from 24 to 30 AWG. Other key features of these tiny 8STA connectors include seven colour-coded orientations, PCB options and a boot termination feature.
