Dielectric Withstanding Voltage. The maximum voltage that a dielectric material can withstand without failure. Parameter generally defined as 75% of the specified breakdown voltage for connectors or coaxial contacts. DWV testing proves the device can operate safely at its rated voltage and withstand momentary over potentials. 17550 Gillette Ave Irvine, CA 92614 Tel: (949) 250-1244 Fax: (949) 250-1009
Dielectric Withstanding Voltage,. Maximum voltage potential an insulating material can be expected to support before breaking down. Typically the DWV requirement is defined with a maximum amount time of application of the voltage, plus a maximum allowable leakage current.
Dielectric Withstanding Voltage – voltage that can be applied to a designated spot between the electrode and the lead/pin for a minute in a dielectric voltage test. Used to measure voltage breakdown point.
