Start Testing Faster!The mmWave Waveguide-to-Coaxial Adapters save time with ruggedized NMD-type interfaces for directly connecting millimeter waveguides to the coaxial ports of mmWave VNAs. Ultralow losses are guaranteed.
The Robust Precision Interface for DC to 90 GHzAs the market for millimeter wave sensors for self-driving vehicles expands, the demand for proper RF connections in testing environments is also growing.
Help for Frustration in Testing Labs
1.00 mm coaxial connectors are standard in RF labs worldwide. In fact, they are must-haves for engineers who perform measurements in the range up to 110 GHz.
Lower Friction – Higher Precision
A bearing of the coupling nut prevents friction on the outer conductor. The outer conductor is no longer turned simultaneously – rotation stability is guaranteed.
The SPINNER low PIM switch is a double-pole, double-throw (DPDT) switch and therefore excellent suited for applications of this type.
1.35 mm Blind Mate Adapter
This spring-mounted adaptor accommodates shifts in all planes and directions when connected to a device under test (DUT) and is therefore excellently suited for automatic testing. Its use greatly slashes the costs of production and final inspection.
Start testing faster with these new adapters from SPINNER. They save time with ruggedized coaxial interfaces for directly connecting millimeter waveguides to the coaxial ports of mmWave VNAs. Ultralow losses are guaranteed.
In lab environments, you need to have the right interfaces handy: for waveguide-to-coaxial or coaxial-to-waveguide transitions and with male or female coaxial connectors as required. These convenient solutions save time and let you focus on your testing work.
SPINNER mmWave Waveguide-to-Coaxial Adapter
A common frustration in RF laboratories is unwanted unlocking of the 1.00 mm coaxial thread performing time-consuming calibrations. This spawned the idea of a 1.35 mm connector the “E Connector” with a precise metric thread like the 1.85 mm connector plus an integrated time-saving push-pull capability.
SPINNER 1.35 mm - E Connector: Adapters
1.00 mm coaxial connectors are standard in RF labs worldwide. In fact, they are must-haves for engineers who perform measurements in the range up to 110 GHz. However, their conventional design suffers from a problem: the pitch is too coarse, i.e. the axial distance between the threads is too great.
They resemble the self-tapping screws sold in hardware stores, with a crucial difference: whereas self-tapping screws do their job reliably and withstand typical vibrations with ease, the nut that mates with a 1.00 mm connector loosens practically from being looked at. Calibration problems are therefore literally built-in, often making it necessary to repeat entire test series. Besides the unnecessary extra costs this incurs, it’s a major source of frustration.
For labs that depend on the use of 1.00 mm connectors, we offer a 1.00 mm ruggedized test port adapter that even works with one-millimeter coax connections. It uses a larger thread to achieve a secure mechanical lock. Unintentionally applied transverse or torsional forces are reliably blocked to prevent them from damaging the delicate 1.00 mm coaxial connection. As a result, once a test setup has been assembled and calibrated it can be depended on to consistently do its job as intended.
The new SPINNER Low PIM switch up to 6 GHz, a cross switch (DPDT: double-pole double-throw) will revolutionize test procedures for new generations of cellular antennas.
In the final acceptance of many radio frequency products, measurements for PIM, VSWR and isolation are common. Connecting the terminals of different measurement devices to the device under test (DUT) as well as between the DUT terminals can be very time consuming and therefore costly. This process can be significantly accelerated with our Low PIM switches in combination with the SPINNER EasyDock measurement adapters. Once applied to the DUT and measuring device, the various measuring methods can be performed easily and quickly by simply switching from one measuring device to the other (potential savings: up to 90%).
