500 V breakdown, or working is unrealistic for a good connector. IIRC that 
is about what teflon is rated per mil. Even air, which you have between the 
conductors at the interface between connectors would be much higher than 500 
V .

I've run as high as 6KV on them.  Hy-pot one and it'll probably be good for 
about 12KV, but I'd not want to run one that high.
