Versatile Y-Adapter provides 100 Amp power anywhere

by Martin Flory Group 29 Jun 2018 23:09 PDT

Larger boats can face power challenges when docking in smaller ports that don't offer 100A service. The YQ100PLUS power adapter from Hubbell Marine makes it possible to safely connect a 100A 125/250V AC boat to two 50A dockside receptacles.

Fully sealed against humidity, fog and rain, the YQ100PLUS features a small, lightweight NEMA 4x enclosure that's completely watertight and protected by sealing grommets for years of dependable service. Safety features include indicator lights that provide quick visual confirmation at a distance of correct polarity at the dock receptacles. The unit senses that the two receptacles are from correct phases and that the plugs are fully engaged.

Finished in the same bright yellow as Hubbell Marine's iconic cord sets for enhanced visibility, the YQ100PLUS includes robust cord clamps on the 100A connector body to prevent strain on terminals. Molded plug terminals provide a solid, secure connection to dockside inlets.

This versatile device can also provide 50A power from a single 50A 125/250V receptacle. It senses when the single adapter "A" leg plug is in use for safe operation. For safe operation, the Hubbell Marine YQ100PLUS adapter must be connected to an onboard, center-tapped isolation transformer or shore power converter.
