It is also recommended that power be switched off during the degassing phase of vacuum equipment to avoid exposing connectors to the most critical low-insulating atmosphere.
Connectors at High Altitude
Generally, the physical phenomena that influence breakdown voltage at elevated altitudes are similar to those in a partial vacuum. However, designers should pay special attention to the fact that specific atmospheric parameters like temperature and moisture, which also affect dielectric behavior, are of an uncontrolled nature.
 The impact of altitude on insulation distances.
Final Thoughts
Keeping these five things in mind when determining the operating voltage of a connector can help design engineers select a suitable connector for a given application, and additional resources are available online and for purchase through various standards organizations.
