Title: High voltage electrical connector with access cavity and inserts for use therewith

Abstract: A high voltage electrical connector (50) interconnects sources of energy, such as transformers and circuit breakers, to distribution systems and the like via a high voltage cable (37). The high voltage electrical connector (50) includes an access cavity (58) providing access to the interior of the electrical connector. The access cavity (58) may be fitted with an insert plug (20) or an insert injection plug (120). The inserts (20, 120) include a conductive shield (36, 136) to reduce the possibility of electrical discharges from the inserts.
