Articulated Lines

SPINNER developed articulated lines to replace the measurement cables between the test port, for example of a vector network analyser (VNA), and the device under test (DUT).

Other than conventional cables they have an excellent phase and amplitude stability, even in motion and at very high signal frequencies (up to 50 GHz). The use of several joints between rigid line sections allows the end of the line to be easily moved to all points within a sphere of approx. 0.5 m in radius (without restrictions such as the limited bending radius of a cable). The choice of materials ensures high reliability and a long lifetime of the lines. Articulated lines are available for connector types 2.4 mm, 3.5 mm and N.

SPINNERs articulated lines boast excellent RF properties and an extremely long service life. They are considerably more robust than ordinary test cables, lasting several times as long.

 

SPINNER RF components meet highest standards

SPINNER applies extremely high standards regarding quality, engineering, materials and manufacturing e.g. DIN EN ISO 9001 - Quality Management, DIN EN ISO 14001 - Environmental Management and ISO 50001:2011 - Energy Management. This enables us to offer articulated lines with the best possible performance and lowest possible intermodulation (Low PIM).
