N42.4-1971 - American National Standard for High Voltage Connectors for Nuclear Instruments

Description: This standard provides for interchangeability of safe high voltage connectors in nuclear instrument applications. This standard is applicable to coaxial high voltage connectors on nuclear instruments for DC applications up to 5000 volts and AC applications up to 3500 volts RMS at 60 Hz. The connectors may also be used at higher frequencies provided the operating voltage is appropriately reduced. The connectors are of the 'safe' type in that the pin and socket contacts are well and securely in the connector housing so that hand or body contact of the unmated connector with rated voltage applied will not result in electrical shock.
