FC100 & 200 Frequency Converter

Onboard equipment with alternative supply requirements.

Frequency Converter can be installed onboard and used to power onboard equipment with supply requirements different to that found on the yacht’s AC distribution. This might include a 120 VAC/60 Hz (US) supply to cabins on European yachts or 230 VAC/50 Hz (European) to US yachts.

Items carried onboard can then readily be used by guests with connection via European or US socket outlets.

Such a converter can also be used to power special equipment, including tenders and specific machinery requiring an alternative supply.


TESTIMONIAL

We installed an 85kVA Frequency Converter during a refit installation in Auckland. The Frequency Converter was used as an ancillary supply from the vessel. Delivery was on time and the installation was quick and simple. The modular platform design made system atheistic very clean and accessible for all future servicing needs. We have been happy with the system and its performance.
