I talked again to the sales depertment at Bertan again today, reguarding the power supply cables. As stated previously, the weak link in the system is the standard BNC connector not the RG-58 cable. The RG-58 cable is tested by Bertan to 12 KV DC. The Kings 1064-1 "10 KV" connector is tested to 15 KV DC. So if you are going to run the cable and connector over ~500 volts, it should be terminated with a MHV or preferably a SHV connector, again this is due to the creep path limitations of the BNC connectors.
