High Voltage Connectors
There are very few industry standard high voltage connectors. About the only HV connectors manufactured by multiple companies are the Tyco LGH series, and the so-called federal standard connectors, used in x-ray systems. In addition, there are a few connectors that are second sourced by other manufacturers.

Often the connector is proprietary to the HV power supply manufacturer. At voltages above a few kV, special processes are necessary to ensure that the connector is reliable. Encapsulation, or potting, may be required when attaching the connector to the HV wire. The high voltage wire itself may need to be treated, and any semiconductive layer will need to be removed.
