8STA connectors and accessories can be modified to meet specific customer needs

Lane Motorsport, a division of Lane Electronics, has developed a facility in which the tiny Souriau 01 8STA connector series can be modified and remodeled to suit a customer’s specific application. Lane is an assembling distributor for Souriau and the 8STA accessories are designed and manufactured in the UK by Lane’s sister Lodge Group company, Weald Electronics.

According to Lane Motorsport’s Peter Costin, many customers have a specific requirement often not met by a standard product. “The need to save weight and space, no matter how small, in a motorsport platform is crucial.” Says Peter Costin. “As an example, we can save weight by turning a standard connector into a single flange version using the same high precision machining techniques used by the manufacturer. We can produce custom nut plates or gaskets that match the profile of the modified connector”. Adds Costin.

Souriau’s size 01 8STA connector claims as much as a 20% saving in size and weight over the bigger 02 series. This while demonstrating the performance advantages including resistance motorsport fluids.

The Souriau size 01 connectors accommodate #26 removable contacts and wires from 24 to 30 AWG.

Lane Motorsport’s size 01 8STA interconnection package also features a range of heatshrink boots made by HellermannTyton and protective caps by

Weald Electronics.

This comprehensive motorsport interconnection package is available to specify and purchase online at www.lanemotorsport.com
