The SHV connector represents “Safe High Voltage”. SHV connectors are used in laboratory settings for voltages and currents beyond the capacity of BNC and MHV connectors. The insulation geometry of SHV connectors makes them safer for handling high voltage than MHV connectors, by preventing accidental contact with the live conductor in an unmated connector or plug. SHV connectors are suitable for all high voltage applications up to 5 kV DC or 3.5 kV RMS. These connectors are typically used in nuclear instruments or test and measurement equipment. Voltages are valid for both, the mated and the unmated condition. Panel or bulkhead solder jacks can be pre-positioned in a panel or bulkhead since no crimping is preparation is required.
