Spinner New Fiber Optic Rotary Joints Brochure

Spinner New Fiber Optic Rotary Joints Brochure

The new SPINNER Rotating Solutions Fiber Optic Rotary Joints Brochure showcases some major design advancements in the SPINNER Single and Multichannel portfolio. The new single-channel SPINNER FORJ 1.14 comes with an outer diameter of just 14 mm, specifying a < 1.0 dB insertion loss.

As an additional highlight, the brochure also presents the pressure compensated single-channel SPINNER FORJ 1.17 pc for deep sea applications. Where the roughest of environments are a reality, the multichannel SPINNER FORJ x.65 accommodates up to 20 channels – and now comes in a sea water resistant IP65 design. SPINNER is one of the leading manufacturers for high performance rotary joints worldwide. In particular fiber optic rotary joints require a high quality optical and mechanical fabrication environment. This qualifies SPINNER as integral supplier for fiber optic rotary joints. We provide the precision mechanics and all the optical parts from a single source. Beyond this, SPINNER can offer combinations of fiber optic rotary joints together with RF rotary joints, non-contacting power transmission modules, slip rings, media joints or non-contacting data transmission. In particular, SPINNER focuses on the combination of data and power transmission solutions with small form factor.

Customized Fiber Optic Rotary Joints

The SPINNER FORJ Portfolio allows flexible adoption to your requirements such as:

• Special fibers                      • Extended fiber length
• Up to 52 channels               • Extended wavelength range
• Particular labeling               • Adapted flange concept
• Mixed fibermode assembly, e.g. mulit-mode and single-mode fiber, in multi-channel FORJ
• Customized insertion loss values
• Insertion loss bands over different channels
• Special outgoing goods inspections with measurement of specific parameters

Feel free to configure your product with the according order numbering nomenclature for single-channel FORJ on page 6 and multi-channel FORJ on page 9 of the new brochure.

  • SPINNER Low PIM Switches

    There are zillions of switches out there. But when it’s about low PIM testing, the available options boil down to just a few. And 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.

  • Spinner - Success With Precision

    Wherever possible, SPINNER relies on precision, highly-integrated components, which combine many functions and are made up of minimal parts, thus minimizing the number of connections. This technology allows very good insertion loss values to be achieved, as a lower num-ber of transition resistances also arise at the connections which have been reduced to a minimum. But the main advantage is that the precision increases due to the lower number of fits, meaning the produced components can be created in good compatibility with the simulated geometries.
