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 to N female adapter is characterized by and its longevity for test and measurement laboratories. A SPINNER precision adapter increases the lifetime of the connector of the analyzer considerably and thus saves money in the long term.

7-16 male to N female adapter enables you to reliably transmit radio-frequency signals in the frequency range from DC to 7.5 GHz.

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

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.

• Precision adaptors have improved surfaces for many mating cycles
• Precision adaptors have no O-rings for quicker handling
• Open ports should be terminated by precision loads to avoid measurement errors by reflections
