As the number of wind turbines in use grows, two things are becoming more and more important to their manufacturers and owners: highly efficient power generation and very cost-effective operation, also at greater outputs. On the one hand, it is essential to ensure highly reliable high-speed data transfer between the rotor blades and the control electronics in the nacelle so the system can responsible nimbly to changing environmental conditions. On the other, operators insist on capturing very detailed data for monitoring and controlling the overall installation. SPINNER offers two reliable solutions for data transmission in rotating systems: contactless capacitive and fiber-optic joints.
The new website of the SPINNER Group has just gone live. It features a new design that is clearer, more contemporary, and user-friendlier. The website has also been optimized for use across all devices: smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. Content now automatically adapts to the user’s screen resolution, so that everything can be viewed on any device without any loss of functionality or quality. SPINNER is thus responding to the accelerating trend toward mobile Internet use.
SPINNER has introduced a new low PIM DC break. Besides dramatically reduced intermodulation, it also boasts a wide frequency range. This new broadband DC break with outstanding intermodulation values can be used universally across all common radio frequency bands. The inner and outer conductors are also separate, which permits the break’s use in projects involving high-voltage cables, for example when building tunnels or railway lines.
As early as January 2015, SPINNER supplied all of the components for the world’s first in-building project based on 4.3-10. And now, less than two years after this premiere, the largest producers of base stations and antennas have already introduced new 4.3-10-based products to the market. 4.3-10 is thus advancing by leaps and bounds and is now poised to become the dominant connector system in the mobile communications market even earlier than expected.
