 Times Microwave TF4 dielectric material is the key ingredient, making our PhaseTrack products the best choice for phase critical interconnect applications.

  

 PhaseTrack cable dielectric has been developed to eliminate the "PTFE knee" in the phase/temperature performance of cables for phase-critical applications.  

   

 The PhaseTrack flexible cable product line is available in a range of sizes using TF4 dielectric.

 

 

 

The PhaseTrack product line consists of flexible cables in a range of sizes, using TF4 dielectric and the TMS Tri-Component-Shield:
