Thank you very much, Jack.
But it seems that the term was mistranslated into Spanish. The original text came from Italy, and I finally found out that:

1. prova a cosfi uno(1) BTL - CEI83 - 4110624
2. prova a cosfi zero(1) BTL - CEI83 - 4110623
3. caratteristica a cosfi zero(1) BTL - CEI83 - 4110421

cosine-fi


Explanation:
Al ver tu explicación veo que el término es COSFI, que es la abreviatura de "Coseno-fi" en español. Yo sugiero cosine-fi, pero no estoy segura si está correcto.
