Protective Caps for High Performance Circular Connectors that meet MIL-DTL-38999 and MIL-DTL-26482

We are happy to announce a new range of protective caps designed for high performance circular connectors that meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999 and MIL-DTL-26482. Designed to offer the same level of performance when the connectors are not in use, models available include those specifically designed for use with Souriau’s 8STA connectors in motorsport applications and for use with Weald’s MIL-DTL-26482 LMH bayonet locking connector series.

Available from Lane’s Motorsport Division, the MIL-DTL-38999 protective caps for 8STA connectors are available in two versions – standard and ultra-lightweight. The standard versions, which are manufactured by Souriau, are shell machined from solid material and are available in 13 sizes and four types. Featuring an anti-vibration locking design, the standard caps have an operating temperature range of -55⁰C to +175⁰C.

The ultra-lightweight versions, manufactured by Weald Electronics, are machined from solid aluminium and provide a corrosion resistant cap for 8STA connector plugs and receptacles. According to Lane Electronics, the caps are up to 35% lighter than current models, feature an anti-vibration locking design and can be supplied with or without a flexible, stainless steel micro wire rope lanyard.

Weald’s LMA protective caps perform to the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482 and are designed for use with the company’s LMH bayonet lock circular connectors. Machined from aluminium alloy for strength and light weight, the caps come equipped with fluid resistant gaskets for maximum protection. Users can specify woven restraining cords or chain assemblies. LMH series connectors are ideally suited for demanding applications across all sectors of industry including factory automation, medical systems and industrial machinery.

Lane is 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.
