Nmea power drop cable wiring

Hello, just wondering if anyone can help, I'm putting together a simple nmea 2000 network to read engine data on my plotter but I'm a bit stuck with the wiring for the power drop cable. I bought a backbone starter kit from quark-elec and the power drop cable has 5 wires - red, black, blue, brown and white. I'm not very knowledegable on marine wiring, I do know the red is + and black - but not sure what the other 3 are for and couldn't find a wiring diagram on their site. Does anyone know what they are for and where I would wire them?
Thanks

Power on to red & black. Insulate & ignore the others.
