HMV and SHV Connectors

San-tron offers a variety of MHV and SHV connectors for demanding high-voltage applications. Weatherproof MHV connectors feature a quick-disconnect, bayonet-locking coupling mechanism while SHV connectors incorporate an added safety feature with outer contacts that remain grounded throughout the connector-mating sequence. The MHV and SHV connector families are available as male and female cable connectors, with standard and polarized interfaces, in crimp-on or clamp-on versions for a variety of different cables with diameters from 0.150 to 0.250 inches, and in bulkhead and panel-mounted receptacles. They are available with a variety of finish options, including silver, nickel, albaloy, and gold plating. All San-tron MHV connectors will mate with connectors and adapters that incorporate MIL-STD-348 MHV interfaces, while all San-tron SHV connectors will mate with connectors and adapters that are based on MIL-STD-348 SHV interfaces.
