The last few years have seen steady expansion of network infrastructure to accommodate new frequencies, and investments in new equipment have gone sky-high as a result. Many operators have installed a wide variety of new devices, all of which need to be safeguarded and efficiently managed. The new SPINNER Power Protector prevents the master unit from being damaged by high power while greatly helping to reduce capital expenditures.
New communications applications involving the N 75 Ohm interface operate at high frequencies up to 18 and 20 GHz. This has created a need for precise, reliable test equipment for calibration and connection to available 50 Ohm vector network analyzers. SPINNER has now launched high-precision calibration kits in both cased and compact 4-in-1 formats, as well as adapters ranging from N 75 Ohm to N 50 Ohm (DC - 18 GHz) and 3.5 mm 50 Ohm (DC - 20 GHz).
Transmitter power levels in the USA are among the highest in the world. SPINNER supplies many of its signature products in sizes up to 9 3/16”, including the patented Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) and our original Direct Access Units. Our switches already had the highest power handling for any given line size but now we have taken it even further and introduce 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 will be exhibiting at the NAB Show 2019 in Las Vegas from April 08–11, booth C1336.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
