Times Microwaves, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance coaxial cables, connectors and cable assemblies for military, aerospace, telecommunications, industrial RF and microwave applications, introduced the PhaseTrack® PFlex phase stable cable assemblies. These cable assemblies use a flexible interconnect-style cable that can often be used as a semi-rigid replacement.
The PhaseTrack® PFlex cable assemblies have diameters of less than 0.16 inches with a minimum bending radius of 0.625 inches. These cables use the proprietary TF4™ dielectric that does not have the abrupt shift in phase that occurs with solid, or tape wrapped PTFE based products under normal room ambient conditions. They have cut-off frequencies of 38.4/52.3 GHz and use the same shield construction as Times popular TFlex® cables to provide a shielding of 90 dB/feet.
Key Features of PhaseTrack® PFlex phase-stable cable assemblies:
- Excellent Stability (vs LD PTFE)
- PTFE “Knee” is Nonexistent
- TF4™ Dielectric Technology
These 50-ohm cable assemblies have a blue FEP jacket with oxygen-free silver-plated copper center conductor and silver-plated copper strip outer conductor. They are designed for applications demanding minimal phase change over temperature in ground, sea, airborne or space.
