Souriau 8STA Series

SOURIAU 8STA series connectors are a different kind of high-speed connector. These high-speed connectors are designed for integration into UAVs, rockets, and race cars. 

SOURIAU based the 8STA connectors on mill-D-T-L-thirty-eight-triple-nine and J-N-1003 standards but made them smaller and lighter than equivalent thirty-eight-triple-nine connectors. This makes them ideal for size- and weight-sensitive Mil-Aero applications including satellite launch systems, UAVs, body-worn infantry interconnect, and transportation.

8STA connectors are offered in shell size 02 to 24, with up to 128 signal contacts or hybrid signal and power combinations. They can withstand high levels of shock and vibration, are resistant to fuels and oils, and rated for 500 mating cycles. The integrated backshell and oval flange receptacle provide additional space savings, while the quick, self-locking couple mechanism and color-coding make them easy to use.

  • Derived from MIL-DTL-38999 and JN1003 standards
  • Lighter and smaller than equivalent 38999 connector
  • Shell sizes 02 to 24 with up to 128 contacts
  • Withstands high shock and vibration levels and exposure to fuels/oils
  • Integrated backshell for compact installation
  • Color-coded keyways for ease-of-use
