SPINNER is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-performance rotary joints. Fiber-optic rotary joints (FORJs) in particular require exacting optical and mechanical manufacture. And SPINNER ideally meets these requirements. We provide all of the mechanical and optical parts in top quality from a single source. All fiber-optic components are assembled in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom environment and 100% tested.
We also supply combinations of fiber optic rotary joints with radio frequency (RF) rotary joints, contactless power transmission modules, slip rings, multi-media joints and contactless data transmission. Our specialties also include integrated data and power transmission solutions with a small form factor.
SPINNER builds fiber-optic rotary joints available up to 81 channels and any fiber type (single-mode, multi-mode or thick-core). The rotary joints transmit signals with low insertion loss, high return loss values, guarantee data transmission at high speeds and/or in EMI/EMC-sensitive environments.

The SPINNER FORJ 1.14 features top performance with the most compact dimensions available in SPINNER’s single-channel family. Superior design results in typical insertion losses below 1.0 dB with single-mode fibers. Its small size combined with a low weight of only 18 g enables rotational speeds of 10,000 rpm and more.
For very low-profile designs in which even the minimum bending radius of optical fiber is a constraint, the SPINNER FORJ 1.14L lets the optical beam turn a tight 90° corner. Based on the SPINNER FORJ 1.14, it features equally outstanding performance.

The SPINNER FORJ 2.25 meets the need for a basic dual-channel, single-mode rotary joint. Its mechanical system makes it very compact. We can supply it with either multi-mode fibers only or a combination of single-mode and multi-mode fibers. IP65 is standard for this version. Smaller diameters are available. For higher rotational speeds version 2.25 is availabe with IP54.

The SPINNER FORJ x.40 delivers market-leading compactness for multi-channel solutions with up to six channels, with an outer housing diameter of only 39.5 mm. It is available in single-mode, multi-mode, and mixed-fiber mode configurations.
SPINNER FORJ x.40
Ideal for multi-channel applications involving more than six channels, the SPINNER FORJ x.60 covers the full range from seven up to 81 channels. It is available in single-mode, multi-mode, and mixed-fibermode configurations.
SPINNER FORJ x.60
For use under the very harshest environmental conditions, the pressure compensated SPINNER FORJ x.65 is designed for the use in deepsea applications and withstands brutal vibrations and shocks, high humidity, and seawater. Its IP68-rated design meets the needs of offshore and military applications. Available for 2 to 8 channels in single-mode fiber configurations.
