Low PIM Switch

Low_PIM_Switch

The SPINNER low PIM switch - a double-pole, double-throw switch has revolutionized equipment testing. It lets you tap potentially enormous savings on the order of about 90% compared to conventional methods. If you want to use a switch in a calibrated test system and need it to keep working perfectly through hundreds of thousands of cycles without requiring any maintenance, there is really only one choice: the SPINNER low PIM switch.

Customized Jumpers

Spinner_customized_jumpersWith SPINNER you select exactly the jumpers that you need. You decide on the types and lengths of the cables and pick out the connectors. A few days later, you receive a package containing exactly what you ordered. Every mobile communication network is structured the same way. But the equipment and local conditions vary from site to site. To make sure it works well, the prerequisites include technically excellent products, short paths, and no unnecessary transitions (to reduce PIM).
