Future-Proof: The SPINNER Cluster Connector Grows to Keep Up with Your Requirements

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.

Contactless Rotary Joints for Data Transmission with 100 mm Clear Internal Diameter

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!

New SPINNER Splitters Now Available for 5G

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.

Fiber-Optic Technology for Pitch Control: from the Specialist for Contactless Data Transmission

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 Launches Direct Access Units in New Design

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.

SPINNER Multiband Combining Systems with 4.3-10

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.

SPINNER S Band Rotary Joints for Use in Space

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.

New Mobile Communication Bands up to 3800 MHz

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.

V-, E- and W-Band Rotary Joints and Flexible Dielectric Waveguides for Measurement Applications

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.
