With the aims of reducing emissions of smoke and toxic gases, delaying their spread and extending the available time for leaving burning buildings, in 2013 the European Union issued the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), to establish harmonized rules for the marketing and use of construction products.
When seals need to meet extreme demands due to harsh environmental conditions, or simply to play it safe by relying on a highly effective product, SPINNER CAF® Plast2000 is first choice. SPINNER CAF® Plast2000 connectors have a threaded opening through which the Plast2000 sealing compound is injected into the cable clamp. The compound enters and fills even the tiniest cavities to completely seal the connector.
SPINNER plays a major role in most large DTV rollouts worldwide and is accustomed to meeting the challenges of large-scale and nationwide deployments, often supplying hundreds of systems to the same operator at very short notice. The company has the ability to flexibly and continuously produce more than 1000 complex multichannel combining and switching systems a year. SPINNER’s recent successes include supplying the mask filters for the world’s first functioning commercial ATSC 3.0 network, which went on air in December 2016. Since ATSC 3.0 is OFDM-based, SPINNER – one of the world’s leading suppliers of OFDM-based broadcasting RF systems – was the obvious choice.
The Elbphilharmonie concert hall is acoustically and mechanically isolated from the rest of the building, and its exteriors are designed to block all radio signals. But because the structure also integrates apartments, a hotel and a public area, the only way to enable mobile communications inside was to install an in-building solution. There are several thousands of visitors a day, who send countless photographs and videos and generate huge data volumes that have to be managed somehow. This called for a first-class solution, so those in charge naturally opted for the SPINNER Mobile Network Combining System – MNCS©.
The SPINNER type 1.14L is a robust, easy-to-use rotary joint for single-mode and multimode fibers. Its main advantage over conventional rotary joints is an L-shaped (90°) fiber exit on the stator, which makes it highly space-saving. This globally unique design is ideal for use in camera systems, e.g. in drones, in conjunction with small, compact slip rings.
