NAV6 PSU Converter

PowerVerter 24Vdc to 12Vdc Voltage Converter

The PowerVerter Voltage converter offers a convenient way to operate mass produced 12Vdc equipment such as cell phones, in car entertainment, professional communication and telematics equipment, refrigerators, televisions etc. from the 24Vdc mobile electrical systems found on diesel engined vehicles and vessels.

This unit can be used to power the NAV6 NAVTEX systems on your vessel.
