The Actisense® Quick Power Drop (QPD-1) provides a simple and powerful method of powering a National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) 2000 network.
QPD-1-GLA is fitted with screw fastening terminal block connectors for quick connection of custom lengths of NMEA 2000 micro bulk backbone cable, such as the Actisense UL certified bulk cable (A2K-BULK-100M).
The QPD-1 provides separate and fuse-protected power feeds to both the left and right sides of an NMEA 2000 backbone, while providing diagnostic capability through easily visible LED’s which indicate the presence, fuse status and polarity of the power feed.
Left and right fuses can be removed independently enabling either side of the backbone to be quickly isolated during diagnostic checks.
A major feature of the QPD-1 is its Integrated low drop, high current schottky diodes that protect the backbone and the power sources from reverse polarity connections and potential back feed (from a secondary power source).
