Astro-Physics 6' Cable with Locking Connectors for GTOCP1, GTOCP2 and GTOCP3, Older Mounts and More

We are pleased to offer our locking power cable with Powerpole connectors for our GTOCP1, GTOCP2 and GTOCP3 control boxes as well as other legacy products.  The Anderson Powerpoles offer flexibility for various power options.  The cable can be purchased as a set or the individual parts can be purchased separately.  This cable requires corresponding cable extension with Powerpole connectors to interface with your power source.  It cannot be used alone. 

This listing features the 6' cable with a Switchcraft locking connector on one end and a Anderson Powerpole connector on the opposite end.  It is constructed with our black cable that remains flexible in the cold weather, a feature that has been appreciated by users for many years. 

Mounts that can use this cable:

All mounts that have the receptacle for the Switchcraft locking power connector as shown in the photo above. This includes all mounts with these control systems: DA (Quartz Controller), QMD (Quartz Micro-Drive), SMD (Servo Micro-Drive and GTOCP1, GTOCP2 and GTOCP3 (except the first black 1200 mounts and 400 mounts),  It can also be used for the cooling fans on the 10" Maksutov-Cassegrain and the 305 mm Riccardi-Honders Astrograph.

If you have an early mount with a non-locking connector (including the first black 1200 mounts and 400 mounts), please call us. We can provide these cables as well.

Optional Cable Set

The Power Cable Set (CABPP123SET) is comprised of all three cables and a clip:

  • 6' Cable described above.  (CABLPFPP) 
  • 18" Power Cable Extension with Cigarette Lighter Plug and Powerpole Connector. (CABPP18C)
  • 18" Power Cable Extension with Ring Terminals and Powerpole Connector. (CABPP18R)
  • Clip to secure the 6' cable to whichever extension you choose.

You may also create your own extension cable by using Anderson Powerpole connectors and components purchased on the Powerwerx website. Securing clips can also be purchased directly from their website.  Remember, longer cables result in more voltage drop. We recommend that you limit the total length of the cables to 8'.  Insufficient voltage will result in an amber power light on the control box or result in a keypad reset and may cause a labored sound of the motors.

This cable replaces CABLPF, which was the original cable supplied with the mount. The CABLPF is no longer available.

If you have an early mount with a non-locking connector (including the first black 1200 mounts and 400 mounts) or an 800 mount, please call us. We can provide these cables as well.
