HUBER+SUHNER SHV (Safe High Voltage) connectors provide more secure handling: centre contacts are well recessed to prevent shock hazards in unmated condition. When mating a connector pair the outer conductor contact is made prior to the inner conductor contacts. 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.
