SPINNER adapters offer outstanding electrical and mechanical properties

Adapters are used to connect transmission lines with of different interface sizes (so-called inter-type or between-lines adapter) or within one size but different interface genders (so-called within-type or in-line adapter).

SPINNER high frequency adapters are optimized for quality and performance and are designed for the lowest possible reflection factors. The outstanding electrical and mechanical properties, the simple installation and the high reliability make SPINNER high-frequency adapters one of the most efficient and cost-effective transition connectors on the market. Precision adaptors with RF quality grade 0 are available upon request.

The SPINNER 7-16 male push-pull to N female bulkhead mounting DC-6 GHz precision adapter EasyDock guarantees excellent, lossless mobile communication quality for use in in-building distributed antenna systems (DAS) or on mobile communication base stations outdoors.

Outstanding RF characteristics, best possible passive intermodulation and VSWR

A 7-16 male push-pull to N female bulkhead mounting DC-6 GHz precision adapter EasyDock enables you to reliably transmit radio-frequency signals in the frequency range from DC to 6 GHz.

The adaptor offers a transition from interface 7-16 male to interface N female. The connector has a straight direction.

Bulkhead mounting connectors enable wall mounting e.g. on housings. 1-hole connectors are inserted into an appropriately prepared notch or bore on a housing wall and fastened there, e.g. by screwing.

The 7-16 connector has become the most widely used coaxial connection system for mobile communication systems, due to its excellent mechanical and electrical properties. In order to achieve the industry leading intermodulation performance SPINNER applies silver-plating on all inner and outer conductor parts of the standard connector. As a supporting measure, we use exclusively non-magnetic materials, and we have minimized the number of RF contact points. The connection is especially suited for transmitting medium or high power indoors and outdoors.

The N-coaxial connectors were named after their inventor Paul Neill, who developed this standard for RF connectors in 1942. Often, however, the name also relates to the Navy Connector. Type N connectors can be used at frequencies up to 11 GHz, high-precision types up to 18 GHz. It is typically used in mobile communication applications with demanding mechanical and electrical requirements. SPINNER exclusively manufactures connectors with non-slotted outer conductor contacts and a special sealing profile in the connector head instead of the flat seal disk, specified by IEC or CECC. This ensures the most reliable sealing function.

The push-pull connection is quick and easy to loosen and yet provides enough grip and a secure fit. In addition, the center slots in the contacts provide high contact pressure between the cable and the connector for optimum conductivity and signal strength.
