250V ac means a peak of 350V, so not far short of your 500V. I would certainly be happy to use them at 400V. At 500V I guess you would just have to be careful, keep them dry etc. Above 500V you might need something with wider spacing.

I don't think it's the pin to pin spacing that's the issue , with KV of breakdown listed in the spec. I suspect it's pin to finger spacing ! They aren't recessed very far.

Yep, I was going to suggest Bulgin but I was not too sure on their availability at J's location. Just wondering if the contact rating can be pushed by not using contacts either side of the B+ one? They probably quote a lower figure based on creep-age between adjacent contacts under various levels of humidy etc. Some of their connector range do however go up to 2.5kV.

Thanks Doz and Hi-Q. I like the recessed male chassis socket and the female plug on the cable side. And the cable shield continuity detection is a clever idea too..
My B+ will be well under 500VDC so..
