Rotary Joints Used to Transmit Signals Between
Rotating RF Devices Available from
July 10, 2014 – Allen, TX - Fairview Microwave, Inc. a preeminent supplier of on-demand microwave and RF
products, announces their new line of single-channel/single-axis and single-channel/multi-axis
RF Rotary Joints.
Fairview Microwave's RF rotary joints are needed wherever RF signals have to be transmitted between stationary
and moving parts of a system, commonly used in commercial and military radar, land-mobile-radio communications and
anti-missile defense applications. These
rotary joints boast a compact
design, excellent VSWR, low insertion loss, and minimal variation of RF performance during rotation. The
operating frequency ranges from 0 to 18 GHz depending on the model.
Fairview's latest release includes four single-channel / single-axis rotary joints which provide the perfect
solution for antenna characterization applications such as measuring antenna patterns. This line of single-channel
/ single-axis rotary joints includes two SMA female units, one PCB to SMA female unit and one 3-hole flange to SMA
female unit. We also carry three single-channel / multi-axis rotary joints, commonly referred to as
"swivels". This line includes SMA male to female, SMA male to male and SMA female to female configurations. These
single-channel/multi-axis rotary joints are targeted to applications where linear and rotational movement may
cause undue stress and strain on the coaxial cables and the connectors they mate to.
"Fairview's RF rotary joints are an invaluable accessory for any antenna test range where cables can easily
become twisted and damaged due to continual rotation", says Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager at Fairview
Microwave. "Our new rotary joints and multi-axis ‘swivels' can be used to accommodate linear and rotational motion
while a system is under test."
Fairview Microwave's family of RF rotary joints is available from stock and can ship the same-day ordered. For
