The company’s new loads and attenuators can be combined to meet specific customer requirements. The customer chooses which connector systems are to be installed and the power to be absorbed. In addition they can define the attenuation for the attenuators and if required, an integrated DC break. The product is ordered using the respective sales article numbers then the individual product is assembled and delivered – without a surcharge.Read More
With 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).Read More
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.Read More
SPINNER has introduced a new family of low PIM DC-breaks. Built with outdoor protection IP 67 these DC breaks are extremely durable, even under tough environmental conditions. With a broad frequency range of 380 to 2,700 MHz, -160 dBc IM3 and with separated inner and outer conductor, most mobile communication scenarios are featured. To make them a solution for today and tomorrow they are built with 4.3-10, 7-16 and N interfaces.Read More
The saving potential of SPINNER’s low PIM switches in RF testing environments is immense. They spare you the hassle of undocking and re-docking measurement cables when performing different measurements on the same DUT. Technically speaking, these are DPDT switches with two parallel-switching inputs and outputs. They are available with 7-16 and 4.3-10 connectors and specified for -165 dBc (typ. -170 dBc).Read More
The new second edition of SPINNER’s Air Traffic Control Rotary Joints catalogue covers all rotary joints for civil and military ATC radars. This edition reflects the latest developments for this demanding market with high reliability. Starting from 3 channels up to 9 channels, S and L-Band solutions are available from Europe’s leading system house of rotary joints. Customized solutions used for ATC Radar applications can be made available on short notice.Read More
SPINNER’s low PIM attenuator reduces cost by ensuring much more flexibility during installation processes. The low PIM attenuator can be adjusted between 15 and 30 dB and performs with -160 dBc/-165 dBc in mobile carrier frequencies. First DAS outdoor installations have proven to save up to 90% of time during power adjustment. Site and in-building installations will be much faster and more efficient due to the flexibility provided by SPINNER’s low PIM attenuator.Read More
Due to its innovative design, the dielectric waveguide SPINNER EasySnake combines the flexibility of a conventional RF test cable with the excellent low-loss transmission characteristics of a classic waveguide system, initially for the frequency range from 75 to 110 GHz. The extraordinary appearance of the SPINNER EasySnake catches the eye, as the waveguide is composed of individual jointed segments that allow free movement of the line.Read More
In order to provide equipment manufacturers with rotary joints tailored to the specific requirements of fixed and mobile SatCom systems, Spinner has developed two new rotary joint product families - single channel waveguide rotary joints for Ku-Band, and dual-channel coaxial rotary joints, which are suitable for Ku-Band and intermediate frequency applications.Read More
SPINNER provides after sales service to manage the frequency changes induced by 700 MHz clearance projects. The planning of modifications can be done without site surveys using detailed documentation prepared in the factory.The SPINNER staff does everything possible to assist the customers, even in unusual situations.Read More

Have you ever wanted to flexibly configure your loads and attenuators to make them a perfect fit for your projects? SPINNER loads and attenuators can be easily customized in three steps. First select the power that needs to be absorbed, then choose the connector interface(s) and attenuation―and you’re done! Extra features such as an extended frequency range, recording of measurements, or an integrated DC break can be optionally selected. This video presents the available options. Use our sales article numbers to flexibly configure your product.Download
The flexible, soft-launch PCB adapter SPINNER EasyLaunch is mounted flush with the printed circuit board (PCB) surface and ensures excellent RF performance, even with multiple launches. This technology permits variable positioning of the connectors everywhere at the board, maximizes flexibility for placing RF contacts and enable a more compact board design. Conventional solutions either limit the range of possible PCB layouts or reduce RF performance.Download
