Earth Leakage on Boats
Every boat that plugs into an electric hook up should have Galvanic isolation to prevent severe hull corrosion. But it's even MORE important to know if your boat has earth Leakage problems.
That's because Earth Leakage is even more damaging than Galvanic currents, and often comes from things like chaffed cables or moisture ingress, but more and more, it's from "Tech" equipment like battery chargers, TV's etc. The electronics in these appliances can generate a "Signal" that's picked up by the boat's wiring, and conducted to earth in the form of leakage.
Our Extra Protection models have two warning lights that constantly monitor your boat's earthing, and warn you instantly if you have Earth Leakage. So you can sort it, before it does some REAL damage.
The damage can be severe, like corrosion of the boat's hull and prop'. Also, driveshafts and bearings can be badly affected. And the damage happens FAST. We're not talking about years here - or even months... Pitting can start in days. We've seem props go from brand new to ruined in 3 months.
You don't need an electrician to fit our plug in Galvanic isolators - simply plug it on to either end of your electric hook up cable.
