Spinner

Spinner's work with RF and connectivity equipment goes back to the late 1940s when it began development and production of coaxial connectors, which are now used widely in mobile communication in 50 ohm form, and a two-beam oscillograph.

During the 1960s the company began developing coaxial single and dual channel rotary joints and opened a production facility in Feldkirchen-Westerham. Towards the end of that decade Spinner moved into high energy physics and during the mid-70s produced large wave guide devices, such as the Metz transmitter station for high power transmission at 600MHz.

The cable boom of the early 1980s saw the company develop CATV connectors for Deutsche Telekom's broadband communication networks, as well as optical wave guide components and measuring equipment and high vacuum technology for coaxial elements used in high performance RF particle accelerators. In the early 90s Spinner Lauenstein was established to produce assembled cable for mobile base station.

Further corporate expansion came with the formation of Spinner Hungaria to increase production of connectors, Spinner Atlanta in the late 90s and then Spinner Telecommunication Devices Shanghai and Spinner Electrotecnica Madrid during the early 21 century. The current product line includes coaxial connectors, EMP protector, cable assemblies, measuring components, line components, directional couplers and dividers, loads and attenuators, switches, rotary joints and slip rings, filters, combiners, analogue fibre optic links, the MNCS mobile network combining system for outdoor antenna systems and broadcast systems including combiners in 19-inch rack-mounted insert technology, CCS combiners, parallel switching units and nine-inch matrix systems.
