MHV (Miniature High Voltage) connectors are bayonet locking interconnects used for high voltage applications up to 5000 volts. They are similar in size to, but not designed to mate with the BNC interface. MHV connectors conform to MIL-STD-348 and offer a quick-connect functionality that is used where transmission of high voltage is required.
