The vendor has assembled a package of products and accessories around the Souriau size 01 8STA t create an interconnection system that combines weight and space saving with high performance, particularly targeted at the motorsport sector.


The Souriau size 01 8STA connector offers 20% saving in size and weight over the popular size 02 series while maintaining all the size 02 performance advantages – including its anti-vibration design and high resistance to motorsport fluids. The size 01 connectors accommodate three removable #26 contacts that can handle wires from 24 to 30 AWG. Other key features of these tiny connectors include seven colour-coded orientations, PCB options and a boot termination feature. For more weight saving, Lane Motorsport has also made available a single flange version.


The complete interconnection package features a range of accessories made by HellermannTyton and Weald Electronics. These include protective caps, gaskets, nut plates, heat shrink boots as well as all the assembly tools needed to complete the application. For example, Weald Electronics’ aluminium protective caps are ultra-lightweight, feature an anti-vibration locking design and the new size 01 caps are about 50% lighter than the standard size 02. They are available in 14 sizes and two versions for plugs and receptacles. The caps can be supplied with or without a flexible, stainless steel micro wire rope lanyard.


HellermannTyton’s size 01 heat shrink boots are exclusively available from Lane Motorsport. Available in straight and 90⁰ versions, these heat shrinkable, strain relieving boots for backshell to cable transitions are adhesive lined and made from fuel-proof material.
