A galvanic isolator does not replace your sacrificial anodes which are essential to protect your underwater metals.
A galvanic isolator does offer protection from both stray currents and galvanic currents which attack your boat via the shore power earth cable. These currents can transmit from other boats, metal pontoons and leaks on the 240 volt systems in the marina. Serious leaks can devastate your propellors / shafts/ anodes etc in a matter of weeks. Surveyors & boat inspectors will usually recommend fitting a galvanic isolator in the marina environment. They see the effects of unprotected boats all too often.
Surge Protection to 120 amps
Anti Theft Design
Fitting a Plug In Galvanic Isolator couldn’t be simpler. You don’t need any electrical knowledge – it just plugs in. It’s weather proof Guaranteed to work just as well as the wire-in type.
Fortunately, theft of galvanic isolators is extremely rare, but if you prefer your isolator to be firmly fixed to your boat, we have the answer. Based on our top-selling range of Galvanic Isolators, and incorporating the added advantage of professional high security fixings, this isolator is almost impossible to steal. In fact, if it’s fitted in accordance with our instructions, if it gets stolen, we’ll replace it FREE.
If it’s stolen, we’ll replace it FREE
Stainless steel clamps securely fix the isolator, whilst our patented “once in never out” fixings ensure that even if a thief comes equipped with tools, removing the isolator intact will be practically impossible.
This model offers many benefits over standard galvanic isolators.
The most obvious benefit is the Status Alert Indicator, which constantly monitors your boats earth connection for faults that could lead to corrosion of the hull, or even life threatening mains voltage earth leakage faults.
Bright, easy to read indicators warn you immediately a problem is detected.
How It Works…
Check your earthing at a glance.
Both Lights OFF: Your galvanic isolator is operating normally. No action required, so just check back occasionally to ensure that all’s well.
One Light ON: If either of the lights are on, it indicates DC leakage. This can cause severe corrosion to your boat. Our instructions give clear basic advice on how to resolve the problem.
BOTH lights ON: If both lights are ON, this indicates AC leakage, usually from the mains wiring or a connected appliance. AC leakage can be a danger to life. Please see instructions for help in rectifying the problem.
Our Gi50/16/SA/HS Plug In Galvanic Isolator simply connects between your shore supply (hook up) cable and the mains inlet of your boat, (preferably at the boat end for security).
