Rigid Rectangular Waveguides for RF transmission
RF signals are routed from the transmitter to the antenna through coaxial cables with air or foam dielectric, coaxial rigid lines or through waveguides, mostly with a square, round or elliptical cross-section.
Depending on the power to be transmitted and on the frequency range the size of the rectangular rigid lines varies. For such transmission lines SPINNER supplies the flanges, straight rigid lines, elbows, inner supports, coupling elements, gas barriers and adapter pieces as well as trimming lines, direct access units and phase shifters to adjust and measure the lines.
It is mainly for higher frequencies in the range between 3 and 30 GHz that waveguides with various cross-sections are used for transmitting RF signals. For transmission lines with square waveguides SPINNER offers straight line elements, twists, elbows, pressure windows and waveguide-coaxial adapters. Components for adjusting and measuring waveguide systems are also available upon request.
For decades SPINNER has been the supplier of RF feed line systems for major high-energy physics research centres. Besides pure particle accelerators for basic research (through particle collision), over time an increasing number of high-energy machines for generating synchrotron radiation has come into use. Such systems are no longer exclusively used in scientific applications, but are also employed in special hospitals, e. g. for cancer treatment.
SPINNER supplies a broad range of products for use between the high-power generators and the accelerator structures that drive the electrons, protons and ions. This is another area where SPINNER offers you top precision for optimum performance. Again, you can trust in our quality and our experience.
