Mechanical Phase Shifters

API Technologies' Mechanical Phase Shifter designs are ideally suited for delay line applications in optical and RF Networks. These designs provide linear adjustable phase shift in a very small inline coaxial packages with long mechanical cycle life. Models can also be easily adapted to motorized control configurations. Mechanical phase shifters have an inherent delay / Zero phase shift even when sitting in the minimum position. That phase is the Characteristic Insertion Phase and is provided as a typical value. Insertion phase is considered the fixed value of the phase shifter and is measured at the minimum setting.
