The products of the SPINNER FORJ portfolio can be flexibly adapted to accommodate your needs:
- Special fibers
- Extended fiber lengths
- Up to 52 channels
- Extended wavelength range
- Special labeling
- Adapted flange concept
- Mixed fiber mode assemblies, e.g. multi-mode and single-mode fiber, multi-channel FORJs
- Customized insertion loss values
- Insertion loss bands over different channels
- Special outgoing goods inspections with testing of specific parameters
SPINNER FORJ Single-Channel
SPINNER FORJ 1.14
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.
SPINNER FORJ 1.14L
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.
SPINNER FORJ 1.17/1.17pc
The SPINNER FORJ 1.17 is designed for very harsh environments, being able to withstand extremely strong vibrations, jolts, and shocks as well as humidity and seawater. Its design responds to the needs of offshore and underwater applications and boasts a protection rating of IP68. As a special feature, we provide this single-channel rotary joint with pressure compensation for your deep sea applications at depths down to 4,500 m as the SPINNER FORJ 1.17pc.
SPINNER FORJ 1.22
For rough industrial environments, SPINNER FORJ 1.22 features a protection rating of IP65 and keeps out dust and humidity. Protective fiber tubing prevents damage to fibers during installation.
SPINNER FORJ Multi-Channel
SPINNER FORJ 2.25
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.
SPINNER FORJ x.40
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.60
Ideal for multi-channel applications involving more than six channels, the SPINNER FORJ x.60 covers the full range from seven up to 52 channels. It is available in single-mode, multi-mode, and mixed-fibermode configurations.
SPINNER FORJ x.65pc
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.
