Protect your VNA measurement port with a port saver!

Have you ever been annoyed by a faulty test port connector on your network analyzer? To blame yourself would probably be the wrong answer here. That's why we prefer to offer solutions: The new ruggedized precision test port adapters.

SPINNER Equips Omniturm in Frankfurt am Main with Passive DAS Technology

To ensure mobile communication coverage in the 185-meter-high Omniturm, an office and residential building in Frankfurt am Main’s city center, the owners have decided to install a passive DAS system containing SPINNER products.

When you need to climb, carry less weight! Our new 3-in-1 compact calibration kits for 5G NR

Calling all cell tower technicians!
The new SPINNER 3-in-1 OSL compact calibration kits for the NEX10® and 4.3-10 coaxial connector systems will be available in July. This means that you can save measuring equipment weight when climbing a cell tower and still perform a complete OSL (Open, Short, Load) 1-channel calibration of the network analyzer.

Antenna Monitoring System: VSWR Monitoring

The SPINNER Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) has evolved in recent years into a tool that goes beyond merely arc detection. A breakthrough was the addition of innovative VSWR monitoring, which is much more than a normal power reading at a directional coupler.

5G Broadcast Ready for Commercialization

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2022, visitors witnessed the first end-to-end commercial 5G Broadcast solution in action. A live signal was transmitted within the exhibition center in Barcelona, using a Rohde & Schwarz transmitter, sectorized antenna systems from Cellnex and a smartphone form-factor test device from Qualcomm Technologies. SPINNER supplied a mask filter from its portfolio.

Rotary Joints for GigE with Large 300 mm Clear Inner Diameter

This new contactless GigE rotary transmission solution now makes it possible for SPINNER to supply products with an especially large inner diameter for dependably transmitting Ethernet protocols across a rotating interface. The joints feature a clear inner diameter of 300 mm and enable reliable Gigabit-Ethernet-LAN transmission. This isn’t possible with conventional sliprings or other technologies.

SPINNER Diplexer for Interference-Free Coexistence of TDD and FDD Bands 7 and 38 of the 2600 MHz Spectrum

SPINNER has just released an important component for enabling the concurrent use of TDD and FDD in the 2600 MHz frequency band: our new diplexer BN 570761, which lets you combine bands 7 and 38 without any interference.

How to Increase the Accuracy of RF Test Results

The scattering parameters of a device under test (DUT) are measured using a vector network analyzer (VNA). Before starting, however, the VNA should be calibrated applying a set of known calibration standards to identify and minimize systemic errors. Accurate calibration is a must for reliable results.

SPINNER RF Power Protector: Intelligent Protection for Active In-Building DAS Systems

It’s a major challenge to get optical system components, which typically have low input levels, to work well with conventional radio stations with their high output levels. The time has come for the new, innovative SPINNER RF Power Protector with its globally unique functionality!

Contactless Data and Power Transmission Now Replacing Slip Rings in Rotating Applications

The data volumes transmitted by rotating systems in industrial facilities are steadily growing. Users’ expectations are also increasing – not only regarding performance and transmission quality, but also where the reliability of machines is concerned. In many cases, independently of the rotational speeds involved, they need to be able to operate reliably 24/7 without any interruptions.
