As the premier product line, Times Microwave Systems MilTech™ cable assembly products have been developed to stand up to the harshest operating conditions and requirements. Bred to be tough enough for military applications, MilTech™ products also get the job done in railway and automotive transportation applications, in manufacturing environments, in mines and in outer space. MilTech™ cable assembly products are available in standard-weight (MT), light-weight (MTL) and extremely-ruggdedized (XR) versions.
PHASE CRITICAL ASSEMBLIES
Be certain it will work - use Times Microwave Systems Phase Critical Products
Let Times Microwave build the highest performance phase cable assemblies for your phase critical applications. Spanning various temperature ranges, and exhibiting a range of operating characteristics, we have the cable and the expertise to give you the performance you need in your operating environment.
Count on Times to provide the phase matched, phase tracking, phase stable cables assemblies - available individually, in pairs, in sets - to meet your requirements.
MaxGain™ ULTRA-LOW LOSS GENERAL PURPOSE microwave ASSEMBLIES
MaxGain™ cable assemblies from Times give you the lowest loss AND long life stable performance for many applications.
The proprietary outer conductor geometry used in our MaxGain cable give you ultra low loss, flexibility and stable, repeatable, long-life performance.
Perfect for general use, the MaxGain Cable Assembly Brochure can be found here.
QEAM and FIELD DEPLOYABLE ASSEMBLIES
Times Quick Erecting Antenna Mast (QEAM) cable assemblies support a wide range of mast installations - temporary, extendable, fixed, permanent -with rugged, broad-band, low VSWR performance that stands up to repeated flexing and coiling.
QEAM constructions come in a variety of materials, to handle various temperature ranges and environments.
Custom QEAM assemblies are available in a wide size range, with various outer jacket or armor options. Connect with the Times Applications Team to work up your QEAM assembly.
Let Times put TCOM™ cable to work in your completed assemblies
Get rugged, broader-band, low VSWR performance that stands up to flexing and coiling.
CONSTRUCTION: Standard TCOM™ construction includes a copper-clad aluminum center conductor, foam polyethylene dielectric, silver-plated copper strip braid outer conductor and tinned-copper braid outer shield, with a polyethylene outer jacket. Highly flexible polyurethane outer jacketing is used in the TCOM™ ultra-flex cable, for notably improved overall cable flexibility. TCOM™ FlexStrand uses stranded center conductors in addition to the polyurethane jacket for the ultimate in TCOM™ cable flexibility.
USES: TCOM™ cables are often used in low PIM situations, and in field deployable antenna feeder applications - especially when the ability to withstand several thousand reelings counts. Custom cable assemblies are also available with additional outer jacket or armor options. Get started with TCOM Assemblies here.
When "rugged" just isn't rugged enough - Let Times provide armored cable assemblies to get reliable performance that stands up to your severe environment.
Armored versions of many cable types are available as custom cable assemblies.
Armored Cable Assemblies are available in the product lines: MilTech, Silverline, TCOM, TESTMATE, and others. Available armor types include a range of thick wall flexible jacketing, flexible wire reinforced with extruded thick wall jackets, and full metal coverage crush resistant square-lock styles with various outer jacket types.
LMR™ WIRELESS AND FLEXTECH CUSTOM OR COMMERCIAL ASSEMBLIES
LMR™ cable assemblies from Times give you performance you can count on - and are suited to many applications.
FlexTech™ Commercial cable assemblies give you more choices - to stay connected.
FlexTech™ Custom cable assemblies keep you connected in repeated or continuous flexing applications.
