SPINNER AMS with Distance-to-Fault Detection

Now the SPINNER Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) not only warns you about faults, but also locates them for a fast repair, saving both time and money.


It is a completely passive solution with no additional signal being injected into the antenna line. It uses two different measurement methods to reliably detect any type of arc, even ones that won’t cause VSWR degradation.

5G Broadcast: New Ways to Distribute Content –
Achieve Wider Coverage and Lower Costs

5G Broadcast is poised to unleash one of the biggest, most exciting leaps forward in the broadcasting arena during the next few years.

Mobile networks have already seen a clear trend toward enormous data volumes over the last decade, driven by surging mobile phone use, greater data consumption, and increasing interconnectivity.

5G Broadcast vastly increases the speed of cellular networks while delivering greater bandwidth, spectrum availability and lower latency for better and wider coverage. It will greatly benefit mobile devices, automotive applications, and the IoT, among other things.

SPINNER 5G Broadcast key

While creating your 5G Broadcast solution with SPINNER, you benefit from our broad experience in both broadcasting and mobile communications.

Whether you currently have only a vague concept, a concrete idea, or a detailed block diagram, you’re in good hands with us. We’ve spent more than 50 years developing and building complex systems that reliably connect transmitters and antennas.

Filtering, Combining and Switching Systems for SFNs

SPINNER is well-known for its beautifully engineered, top-quality systems of the utmost quality. For the most part, these are highly customized and integrated designs built by drawing on a large portfolio of standardized components. We have unmatched experience in implementing channel filtering, combining, and switching systems for SFNs; many thousands of our systems play key roles in ensuring effective, reliable transmission systems around the globe. In countries ranging from Australia to Zimbabwe, SPINNER channel combining and switching systems make a substantial contribution to implementing cost-effective, reliable SFNs.

Completely factory-tested and ready to go, these systems generate major savings of time and money. Shown below are several compact rack-mount solutions that integrate filtering, patching, measuring, antenna monitoring and other capabilities.

Coaxial Switches

Our switches already had the greatest power handling ability for a given line size. And now we have gone even further and introduced the world’s first 8-3/16” switch. With a walloping 120 kW of power handling this switch is a viable alternative to waveguides.

SPINNER offers a complete line of coaxial switches with unrivalled power handling, switching speed and reliability. All of our broadcast switches come with true interlock signaling and position signaling. They are available in N, 7-16, 7/8”, 1 5/8”, 3 1/8”, 4 1/16”, 4 1/2”, 6 1/8” and 8 3/16”.

Direct Access Units

Typically installed at the top of feeder lines, these devices allow easy electrical access for performing measurements both up toward the antenna and down toward the transmitter.

Our Direct Access Units have a negligible impact on the signal while saving both time and money in connection with phasing and regular maintenance measurements. They come in 1-5/8”, 3-1/8”, 4-1/2”, 6-1/8”, 7-3/16”, 8-3/16” and 9-3/16”.

Please also see our wide range of measuring accessories including compact calkits for 50 and 75 Ohm and our complete 75 Ohm measuring accessory kit BN 876794.

75Ohm Measuring

The line sizes 7 3/16”, 8 3/16” (and sometimes also 6 1/8”) have an impedance of 75 ohms. This poses the question of how to measure them using conventional 50-ohm analyzers.

Enter SPINNERs line of 75Ω adapters from N to 6 1/8”, 7 3/16” and 8 3/16”, compact 4in1 calibration kits and single reference standards.

Especially for use with SPINNER 75 Ohm Direct Access Units we have created 75 Ohm measuring accessory kit BN 876794 including a 75 Ohm calkit, load, short, adapter and cable.
