Lane Electronics Adds 8STA Connector with Integrated Clinch Nut to its Motorsport Offering

We have now added a new version of Souriau’s 8STA circular connector to our product portfolio, aimed specifically at the motorsport sector.

Designed to save installation time and weight, the new connector features integrated clinch nuts which remove the need for nut plates, making assembly easier. It is available in 12 shell sizes from 02 to 24 for standard crimp and PCB receptacles.

As a Souriau distributor, our Motorsport Division can assemble and deliver 8STA connectors to customer requirements within 48 hours.

Featuring a rugged aluminium body plated with conductive black Zinc as standard, 8STA connectors incorporate a positive locking mechanism with locked colour indicators. Designed to be scoop proof, the connectors are fitted with gold-plated copper alloy contacts and features an endurance level of 500 mating cycles.

Operating temperature is – 55ºC to +175ºC and, when mated, the connector meets the requirements of IP67 and can withstand salt spray and other motorsport fluids. 

We are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of electrical and electronic connector products, and an ideal source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub – miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test & measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
