The specialist Motorsport Division of Lane Electronics can now supply protective boots manufactured by HellermannTyton, a manufacturer of heat-shrinkable strain-relieving boots and transitions.

For maximum protection in extreme environments and against the common fluids found in all motorsport formats, HellermannTyton’s protective boots can be supplied in a straight or right-angle format and in a range of materials specially formulated to combine high electric strength, mechanical toughness and superior chemical and environmental resistance.

Lane’s Motorsport Division is centered on the industry and technology leading Souriau 8STA compact circular connector family which is used extensively throughout all levels of motorsport in applications such as engine control units, communications equipment, data acquisition systems and harnesses.

According to Lane Electronics, practically every 8STA connector the company sells needs to be fitted with a boot to guarantee they meet the requirements of IP67.  Lane stocks the standard boots, glue lined boots and boots made from Viton to combat motorsport fuels and oils and offers next day delivery.

The Souriau 8STA Series of circular connectors consists of several connector types, each designed to meet specific motorsport applications. The series also includes the industry’s smallest circular connector, the Size 02. This is derived from established military specifications MIL-DTL-38999 and JN1003 and its ultra-compact design and lightweight construction make it ideal for connecting sensors and other complex electronic systems. Souriau’s 8STA also includes

the smallest and lightest circular connector of its type currently available and its high density capability provides up to 68 size 26 contacts using 24 to 30 AWG wire. This allows a smaller shell size to be used for the same application.

Lane moved into Motorsport at the end of 2012 and followed this up with the acquisition earlier this year of the distribution business of leading motorsport component and systems specialist bf1systems.

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.
