F C Lane Electronics Ltd.


"An independent specialist connector distributor"

Lane Electronics is a stockholding and assembling distributor, with some 35 years experience in connector distribution.

Supported by approvals to QPL, CECC, BS9000 and ISO9002, we are able to offer a wide range of connectors and accessories from our vast stocks of assembled connectors and piece parts, on an ex stock basis or on a short manufacturing lead time for assembled products.

Bulkhead Circular Connectors

Wealds LMF multi-contact bulkhead circular connectors are suitable for use in exposed environments and are available in a range of shell styles in three shell sizes.

In addition, the connectors can be produced with a variety of plating options including RoHS compliant finishes and a clean finish brass version used extensively in the nuclear, petrochemical and mining industry.

 For lightweight use, LMF bulkhead connectors come housed in aluminium shells with fine thread couplings while, for more heavy duty requirements, they come in brass shells with a course thread. Both types are IP67 rated.

LMF connectors are rated from 5 to 60A and can be supplied with 1 to 25 solder contacts. Operating temperature range is from -40ºC to +85ºC.

Thermocouple contacts can also be supplied as well as EMC 360ºC screen termination. In addition to the usual bulkhead fixing arrangements, Weald has included a model with a single fixing hole, secured in place by a specially designed jamnut.

Lane Has The Edge for Edge Connectors

Designers looking for modular edge connectors will no doubt be aware that Viking Interconnection Systems ceased production towards the end of last year depriving Viking customers of a reliable supply of edge connectors, particularly the popular and established VMA series of 0.100in (2.54mm) pitch modular edge connectors.

While we still have a small quantity of Viking product in stock, customers looking to source VMA series connectors will be very pleased to learn that we are manufacturing, in house, VMA equivalent edge connectors under the ITW McMurdo brand.
