SPINNER will be exhibiting at the IBC broadcast show in the RAI International Exhibition & Congress Center in Amsterdam on September 14-18, 2018. Join us at Booth C29 in Hall 8!
You can rely on SPINNER splitters for your In-Building projects. Our broadband splitters and tappers cover the entire frequency range from 350 to 3800 MHz and reliably distribute all frequency bands from PMR/TETRA to 5G. Who isn’t familiar with this scenario? You plan and implement a project, but the moment it’s finished new requirements suddenly have to be met – and in many cases, it simply can’t be done with the existing system.
The bar is being steadily raised for the energy yield, efficiency and reliability of wind turbines. And this in turn is increasing the importance of dependable data transmission between the rotor blades and the controller in the nacelle. Conventional, high-maintenance contacting slip ring sets by themselves are no longer adequate for pitch control, for well-known reasons. This is driving a strong trend toward the use of fiber-optic rotary joints. SPINNER meets this need with fiber-optic rotary joints that have been specially designed to meet requirements in the wind energy market and optimize data transmission.
SPINNER has enlarged its portfolio of direct access units (DAUs) to include higher power levels and sizes up to 9 3/16”EIA. They have also been redesigned to make them more compact, lighter and easier to install.
Multiband combining systems from SPINNER are enjoying great popularity for In-Building and DAS projects. They are already in use in a large number of hotels, sports facilities, train stations, airports, office buildings and shopping malls. The systems are very compact and can be very flexibly bolted to a wall, integrated in a 19” rack or simply installed as a standalone box. Their outstanding technical data include extremely low intermodulation and an unmatched isolation of over 30dB that permits fault-free operation of multiple bands from a variety of carriers in the same system.
Recently SPINNER has expanded its broadcasting portfolio by adding quite a few new products for large line sizes of 6 1/8”, 7 3/16” and 8 3/16” with 75 Ω impedance, including antenna monitoring systems, adaptors, direct access units and switches. SPINNER supplies dedicated 75Ω calibration kits for these products.
SPINNER has expanded its range of rotary joints for use in space, primarily in antenna pointing mechanisms. Many of the rotary joints already available for use in space operate in the X, K or Ka band, and SPINNER has now also developed units for the S band.
As new mobile applications debut, there is a steadily increasing need for greater bandwidth and faster transmission. The Internet of Things (IoT) poses enormous requirements in terms of capacity, data rates and latency times, and this is only the beginning. More mobile communication frequencies are essential. 5G is laying the foundation for this growth, and the new frequency range extending up to 3800 Mhz is the first milestone.
At SPINNER we take pride in being one of the world’s leading suppliers of RF broadcasting systems. We play a major role in DTV-rollouts all over the world and know the challenges of large-scale and nationwide deployments. Our production capacity is extremely high and able to build over 1000 complex multichannel combining and switching systems per year.
Transmitter power levels in the USA are among the highest in the world. SPINNER now supplies many of its signature products in sizes up to 9 3/16”, including the patented Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) and our Direct Access Units. New additions to our portfolio include a complete line of 75Ω adapters from N to 6 1/8”, 7 3/16” and 8 3/16”.
Our switches already have the highest power handling of any coaxial switch we could find on the market (e.g. 6 1/8” 69kW @ 600MHz) and our range of Smart Loads has been extended up to 55kW.
Full-band designs for V-, E-and W-Band rotary joints—covering the frequency ranges from 50 to 75 GHz, 60 to 90 GHz and 75 to 110 GHz, respectively—have been added to SPINNER’s rotary joint portfolio, which initially covered narrowband W-Band. For high-end testing applications requiring very low insertion loss, high stability and good VSWR, flexible dielectric waveguides for the E-band and W-band are available for supplementing the rotary joints. This reduces weight and results in extreme flexibility, very low transmission loss and high stability, offering a high-performance alternative to a traditional flexible waveguide section or test cable.
