Dielectric strength is the insulating characteristic of a material which prevents voltage breakdown or arc-over. It is measured at voltage per millimetres of the insulation thickness.

Dielectric strength is also influenced by the deformation which occurs when an insulated connector is crimped. Then insulation may not be damaged here.
