WALLINGFORD, Conn. – Times Microwave Systems, an Amphenol company in Wallingford, Conn., is introducing the PhaseTrack Low Smoke (PTLS) RF and microwave cable assemblies for shipboard applications.
These cables provide phase temperature performance to 85 degrees Celsius, and offer a low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jacket for confined spaces where air exchange is minimal such as onboard ships and submarines.
Fire is one of the greatest dangers in these environments, as accumulating smoke can obscure visibility for safe evacuation. When burned, low-smoke cables emit a less optically dense smoke that releases at a lower rate, making it easier for occupants to exit and protecting the safety of firefighting operations.
Halogen-free materials also produce clear and white smoke for better visibility, and do not emit halogen’s toxic off-gases.
The PTLS cables are available in 0.2-to-0.6-inch sizes and address all frequencies from HF through K band -- including a variant optimized for minimum loss in Ku band.
Cable assemblies can be supplied with any type of industry standard RF interface. The assemblies incorporate the proprietary TF5 dielectric for a low loss flexible phase-optimized cable.
