Y-Adapter gives cruisers electrical peace of mind

by Hubbell Marine 7 May 17:17 UTC

Serious cruising boaters know that the most interesting ports of call are often served by smaller marinas, which may not offer amenities like 100A service. The Intelligent YQ100Plus adapter from Hubbell Marine delivers electrical shore power peace of mind, whether the trip includes exploring new coastal waters or revisiting favorite destinations around the lake. Designed with numerous safety features, it enables powering a 100A vessel from two 50A receptacles dockside.

Built for years of dependable use with a rugged but compact and lightweight enclosure, the Hubbell YQ100Plus features full environmental sealing to protect against rain, fog and high humidity. Its safe operating range is a generous 75° C to -40° C. Integrated indicator lights confirm connection security and correct polarity upon engagement.

Designed to be used with an onboard center-tapped isolation transformer or shore power converter, the YQ100Plus incorporates an industry-leading internal logic sensor. It confirms whether both plugs are fully engaged with the dockside pedestal for 100A 125/250V operation. If only one receptacle is available, the adapter can be used with just the A leg for 50A 125/250V power; the logic sensor assists with safe operation.

The high-visibility bright yellow Hubbell YQ100Plus includes internal sealing grommets for additional moisture intrusion protection, and integrated cord clamps to prevent terminal strain.
