Actisense QPD-1

The Actisense QPD-1 provides a convenient and safe method of connecting a power source to an NMEA 2000 network.

For maximum flexibility the QPD-1 is available in two versions:

QPD-1-PMW 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, available in various lengths from 0.25 metre up to 10 metres.

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 which is available in 100 metre reels.

Both versions of the QPD-1 provide seperate and fuse-protected power feeds to both the left and right sides of an NMEA 2000 backbone, while providing diagnostic capability through easily visible LEDs 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.  

Particularly helpful is the 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. 

The Actisense range of NMEA 2000 connectors and cables has been designed using our specialist interconnect and NMEA knowledge. All Actisense products are NMEA 2000 certified and fully compatible with other NMEA 2000 connectors and devices.
