Please fill in the short form below with your question, either about the Actisense QPD-1 Quick Power Drop, or for some technical advice. Please include details of your vessel if you feel they will help us answer your query.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
The Actisense® Quick Power Drop (QPD-1) provides a simple and powerful method of powering a National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) 2000 network.
Is fitted with standard NMEA 2000 M12 (micro-fit) connectors which allow ‘plug and play’ connections to a backbone using factory-made fixed length micro-fit cables. The QPD-1-PMW can be quickly connected to Actisense NMEA 2000 micro cable assemblies of various lengths (A2K-TDC-xxM)
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)
Both versions of the QPD-1 provide 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).
