INTELLIGENT ADAPTER CORRECTS SHORE POWER MISMATCHES

Hubbell Connector

Apr 7, 2020

While a growing number of boats operate on 100A electrical systems, many marinas are still in the process of upgrading power pedestals to accommodate them. The YQ100PLUS adapter from Hubbell Marine offers a solution. It safely powers a 100A vessel from one or two 50A AC receptacles—especially helpful for cruisers visiting new ports.
           
Built to last, the Hubbell YQ100PLUS adapter incorporates a rugged, UV-resistant, high-impact housing that is environmentally-sealed against humidity, fog and rain. It allows a 100A 125/250V AC vessel to safely connect to single or double 50A 125/250V AC receptacles. Internal logic control automatically senses whether one or both plugs are engaged, while built-in indicator lights confirm correct phase and polarity dockside. When a power pedestal has only a single 50A receptacle for use, a 3-pole contactor on the YQ100PLUS breaks both hots and neutrals to protect against the disengaged plug being live.

The YQ100PLUS must be connected to an onboard, center-tapped isolation transformer or shore power converter. Giving boat owners the freedom to power their vessels at marinas with a different electrical system from what exists onboard, in the United States the Hubbell Marine YQ100PLUS has a suggested retail price of $3,649 USD.

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works. Plus, when the vessel is moving slowly in fog or while trolling, it can do something a GPS can’t: show the actual heading in real time. As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
