Times Microwave Leaky Feeder Cables

Times Microwave also offers leaky feeder cables in two versions: T-RAD-600 and T-RAD-900. Available for all cables are connectors, lightning protection components, and tools for cutting, stripping and crimping.

Phase Stable and Temperature Stable RF Cables

For phase critical applications Times Microwave offers two different solutions:

Phase Stability during Flexure

If phase stability during flexure is of concern, the best Times Microwave cable is Silverline-VNA, which exhibits excellent stability of amplitude, phase and VSWR with repeated flexure.

Phase Stability vs. Temperature

For highest stability of phase vs. temperature Times Microwave developped its PhaseTrack® cables. Using a special TF4™ dielectric they do not show the typical "PTFE-knee" in the temperature behaviour, see graph below.

High Temperature and Cryogenic RF Cable

For RF applications with extemely high temperature stability requirements Times Microwave developped SiO2 cables, which have a silicon dioxide dielectric, oxygen free copper conductors and stainless steel jackets. Temperature range: -273°C to 1000°C (0 Kelvin to 1273 Kelvin). Brochure SiO2 cables
