7/8" SMS to 7-16 female adapter


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 7/8" SMS to 7-16 female adapter ensures optimal performance for signal transmission between transmitter and antenna in broadcast stations.

Outstanding RF characteristics, best possible passive intermodulation and VSWR

A 7/8" SMS to 7-16 female adapter enables you to reliably transmit radio-frequency signals in the frequency range from DC to 5.3 GHz.

The adaptor offers a transition from interface 7/8" SMS to interface 7-16 female. The connector has a straight direction.

The SPINNER quick clamp system called SMS is based on the international rigid line standards like EIA STD RS 225, 339 IEC and DIN EN 122150. The different parts are connected by coupling elements and fixed together with clamps. The advantage of the SMS system is that the customer can easily cut the rigid line to length on site, without flaring or brazing. The assembly is therefore very simple and no special tools are required. The SMS system is provided solely for indoor installation.

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.
