Values are nominal 25°C performance calculations. Actual measured values may vary from the calculated values based on manufacturing tolerances, cable assembly length, connector performance, actual operating frequency, and measurement accuracy.

The calculator will only return data for Frequencies below the Cutoff Frequency, or fco of the cable. A caution is displayed when data is being presented above the highest frequency verified during production testing of the cable.

The Power Handling calculation is based on operation under controlled conditions: 25°C, sea level, still air (natural convection) environment. Power handling may be limited by connector choice. If your application will operate at high power levels, contact a Times Application Engineering Representative for additional information.
