FC100/200 Frequency Converter

On-board equipment with alternative supply requirements

Frequency Converters can be installed on board and used to power on-board 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 on board can then be readily used by guests with connection via European or US socket outlets.

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