Hubbell Adapter Ensures Safe Shorepower Connectivity

August 2021 News

Variations in shore power systems from one marina to the next mean that vessels visiting new ports of call may not have access to the appropriate electrical connection. The YQ100PLUS Intelligent Y Adapter from Hubbell Marine helps solve this problem. It safely powers any 100A, 125/250V AC boat from two 50A, 125/250V dockside AC receptacles. It can even utilize a single 50A receptacle if required.

Featuring a compact, lightweight enclosure designed for a lifetime of reliable operation, the YQ100PLUS utilizes integrated cord clamps that prevent strain on terminals. Durable grommets and a fully environmentally-sealed casing design keep water out and protect internal components against humidity, fog and rain.

Intelligent internal logic sensors provide safety. They identify that both YQ100PLUS plugs are fully engaged while in use, and when receptacle polarity and phases are correct. Built-in indicator lights confirm proper electrical connections. This adapter also works with just a single 50A pedestal receptacle; a 3-pole contactor on the YQ100PLUS prevents the unused plug from being live, with only 50A delivered to the vessel. 

Hubbell recommends the YQ100PLUS Intelligent Y Adapter be used with an onboard isolation transformer or shore power converter. MSRP is $6,648.25.
