Shore Power Plugs, Sockets & Galvanic Isolators
Our excellent range of shore power plugs and sockets are perfect for supplying your boat with electric whilst it is docked. Whilst your boat is docked amongst numerous other vessels that are all using mains shore power, a connection is created between every vessel via earth cables in the shore power leads. As all the the boats and metal pontoons are now interconnected, any voltage leaks or galvanically generated voltages have a simple path between boats. This can lead to a rapid loss of your sacrificial anodes and increased corrosion of underwater metals.
This is where galvanic isolators come in. Galvanic isolators block any low level voltages from entering your vessel and will also protect your anodes and other underwater metals, instead of protecting those on the boat next to you. Galvanic isolators also block any stray currents that may attack your boat through the shore power earth cable.
