SPINNER already excels with an outstanding portfolio of combining and distributing products for efficient, cost-effective implementation of in-building projects. They include CPR jumpers and cables, splitters, tappers and couplers. And now we have taken it to the next level by adding antennas. This paves the way for building entire distribution antenna systems (DAS) with high-quality components from a single source: SPINNER.
SPINNER has advanced into a new dimension by creating the first series produced 8 3/16” coax switch. It is designed for an operating frequency of up to 620 MHz and can transfer 120 kW of power at this frequency. The maximum power handling of 950 kW could be operated within the range between DC and 10 MHz. The switch is suitable for 75 ohm systems. Used in coaxial rigid lines, it eliminates the waveguide switches and adaptors that are normally required for this power level. Other advantages over waveguide switches include its broadband capabilities and compact shape.
New mobile transmission technologies are emerging while antennas and base stations are shrinking. This is increasing the requirements that connectors must meet. We are responding to them with an ingenious idea: a cluster that integrates the whole range of connection types, from coaxial across DC to AISG and fiber optics.
Our approach masters key challenges: the SPINNER Cluster Connector can grow to meet your need for new technologies, while at the same time ports can be packed closer together. We are so confident of these benefits that in October 2018 we submitted the SPINNER Cluster Connector to NGMN for recommendation as a future industry standard.
The Best High-Performance Connector for E-Band Applications
Reliable coaxial interface connections are crucial for achieving good RF performance, especially in E-band applications. A common frustration in RF labs is inadvertent unlocking of the 1.00 mm coaxial thread after making time-consuming calibrations. This inspired us to create a 1.35 mm connector―the “E Connector”―with a precise metric thread like the 1.85 mm connector and an integrated time-saving push-pull function.
Two trends are dominating industry: increasing digitization of machines and systems and automation of processes, in everything from production across logistics to packaging. In all of these situations, it is imperative to ensure maximum efficiency and prevent failures. This is where the new SPINNER data transmission unit comes in. It now permits dependable transmission at clear internal diameters up to 100mm.
