WALLINGFORD, Conn. – Times Microwave Systems, an Amphenol company in Wallingford, Conn., is introducing the PhaseTrack low-smoke RF and microwave assemblies for shipboard applications like radar, anti-missile defense, and communications.
These kinds of shipboard electronics applications rely on continuous transmission of RF signals with accuracy and consistent speeds, regardless of variations in temperature.
Low-smoke, zero-halogen cable assemblies are essential in confined spaces such as ships and submarines. When burned, a low-smoke cable emits a less optically dense smoke that releases at a relatively low rate. With zero halogens they don't give off toxic gases.
In these systems, phase stability across temperature is key and the phase tracking characteristics of coaxial assemblies can affect performance greatly.
The PhaseTrack microwave assemblies for shipboard electronics applications are available in six sizes, from 0.2 to 0.6 inches. The assemblies meet HF through K band frequency requirements, including an optimized version for minimum loss in Ku band. They come as a complete factory-tested assembly to assure minimal loss and optimal performance.
PhaseTrack microwave cables feature a proprietary foam polyethylene blended dielectric called TF5, which provides phase temperature performance. The PTLS assemblies are customizable and are available with industry-standard RF interfaces or custom connectors.
