FC Lane's Managing Director Simon Hammerton discusses our client's need for unique electrical connector solutions, such as customer-specific fibre-optic cable assemblies, that are always in high-demand and for which we are always increasing our capacity.
As a leading distributor of electrical and electronic connector products we are able to supply a range of circular connectors that meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999 SERIES III, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding applications.
We significantly increased our ITWMcMurdo Connectors inventory and now have available for immediate dispatch more connector ranges than ever before including the popular M200 and Red Range, as well as the 801 Series PCB connector system.
As we've reported before, each year LU Motorsport (Loughborough University Motorsport) develops, builds, tests and races a new single seat race car. From CAD to test circuit, these vehicles are designed from a blank sheet of paper, with the knowledge and expertise from over a decade of racing experience.
The Neutrik XLR series of cable and chassis electrical connectors were designed for use in professional audio and lighting systems and are also used in many industrial applications.
We have made available a two-part, high density PCB connector series for board-to-board or cable-to-cable applications where high resistance to vibration and extreme reliability are paramount.
The ever increasing use of sophisticated electrical and electronic products and systems in areas such as mining and construction as well as applications in offshore installations including wind farms and oil and gas platforms has meant the development of specialist cabling and connector products for this type of environment.
We have now made available a wide range of heat shrinkable boots designed for strain relieving applications where motorsport connectors have integral backshell and other connector designs use boot adaptor backshells to save weight to cable transitions, as well as in other areas where insulation and component protection are key requirements.
We are very happy to announce the Red Range of rugged industrial rack and panel connectors suitable for use throughout industry in blind mating applications to our current range of connector solutions.
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.
Not surprisingly, managing our stock profile to ensure it continues to reflect what the industry needs has been a key part of our strategy since the company was formed back in 1966. As we move through our 50th year, we maintain a product and parts inventory worth several million pounds which means we are virtually always able to meet our customers’ demands for choice and delivery.
We have made available a range of mains power circular connectors manufactured in the UK by Weald Electronics. The LMV range is produced to IEQC-CECC spec BS/CECC 75201-004 which includes the safety requirements of BS EN 60950 for safe use in mains applications and CE marked assemblies including the on-board charging of electric vehicles.
We are happy to announce that we can now supply several types and sizes of D-Subminiature and Rectangular connector systems populated by PosiBand®, a proprietary contact that overcomes the weaknesses inherent in the design of closed entry female contacts currently in use by many connector manufacturers.
We will present our circular power connector capability at DVD 2016, scheduled to be staged at the Millbrook Proving Ground on September 7 and 8th. DVD 2016 is organised by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S), which is the part of the Ministry of Defence responsible for equipping and supporting the UK's armed forces for current and future operations.
We are happy to announce a series of mixed density power connectors that designers will find ideal for the many applications that require good blind mating and a compact package. To further enhance the connector system’s applications flexibility, multiple contact sizes allow the mixing of AC/DC input, signal and DC distributed output in a single package.
