Use this tag when the topic concerns a material which is designed to separate conductors is pushed beyond its voltage limits then allows current to flow. This can be in reference to capacitors or coax cable, among other things.

Use this tag when the topic concerns a material which is designed to separate conductors is pushed beyond its voltage limits then allows current to flow. This can be in reference to capacitors or coax cable, among other things.

When the subject is capacitors it is fairly easy to know the voltage limit.

However, for Coax Cables it takes a certain amount of effort to look up the specifications for the exact type of coax used.

This article shows an example of how to know Vmax for various types of coax:
