RE: HV connectors needed!
You could use the RG-8/PL-259/SO-259 solution (It's cheep). Just remove the
center of the plug and socket, extend the insulated center conductor of the
RG-8 through the plug a couple inches and put a banana plug on it. The
socket is used to secure the cable and the actual HV connection is inside

I am desperately seeking for HV connectors (cable plug + panel socket, 1
capable to carry 20 kV 1A.
Up to now I have found 3 sources:
Nice stuff for avionics, but price is $140 per plug (!). Shipping asap
Very nice stuff, price is about $60 per plug, but connector size is BIG,
cm diameter by 10 cm length. Shipping 1 week.
The LGH series price is about like Lemo's, but they are also big and
time is 10-14 weeks.
Their Series 14 seems to suit to me. Plug is only 1 cm by 6 cm (30 kV).
I sent them last week an email asking for distributors in Europe. Never got
answer (maybe they are on Chritmas holidays?)
These should be suitable size and (maybe) suitable price too.
- Could some of you guys there in the US contact Caton and let me know about
their prices and distributors in Europe?
- Does anybody know any other source of HV connectors like I am looking for
kV 1A) ?
Thank for your help.
Happy New Year.
