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.
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.
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.
The SPINNER MultiFit™ and SPINNER Cut And Fit (CAF®) monobloc connectors have been a big hit with installers. Their easy handling, fast, reliable installation, and excellent technical values put them in a class of their own.
In our last newsletter we presented the SPINNER Antenna Monitoring System (click here), which is engineered to detect flaws in broadcasting transmission infrastructure and alert you to potential problems before any damage can occur.
NGMN has created a 4.3-10 task force with the goal of introducing the new 4.3-10 connector system to the market. SPINNER is an active member of this task force, in which it is drawing on the experience it gained while helping to develop and roll out 4.3-10 to energetically support this NGMN initiative.
SPINNER supplies premium quality multi channel combiners and also offers excellent after sales service
The frequency range available for TV broadcasting is being reduced to 470-700 MHz (originally 470 – 860 MHz) to clear spectrum for mobile communication services and all TV channels above 700 MHz must be shifted.
This requires significant modifications and upgrades of the existing multi-channel combiners, because they have to handle old and new channels simultaneous to allow switching of the whole network in one night. The scenarios become more complicated when the channel allocation has to be agreed with neighboring countries having a different time schedule for the 700 MHz clearance.
In the mobile communication industry, manufacturers take a wide variety of approaches for installing connectors. The differences don’t only concern actual installation, but also the use of tools. This article and video clearly demonstrate the simplicity and high quality of SPINNER MultiFit connectors. Find out how they can save you time and money!
At an ice cream stand, we order exactly what we want. We choose the flavors, say whether we want it in a cone or cup, specify any extras we’re in the mood for, like whipped cream or chocolate sprinkles on top, and a minute later we can start enjoying our sweet snack.
It works the same way with SPINNER. You select exactly the jumpers that you need. You decide on the types and lengths of the cables and pick out the connectors. And a few days later, you receive a package containing exactly what you ordered.
