Overview

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies offers a line of highly phase stable, low VSWR, precision phase shifters designed for high performance military communications (phased array antennas), and commercial applications. A precision mechanical movement provides continuously varying phase shifts, while maintaining 50 Ohm impedance over the entire frequency range. These phase shifters are available in three different configurations based on the application need. Each of them also incorporates a locking nut to ensure stability of the calibrated phase adjustment.
