Re: [Amel] Isolated or non Isolated DC to DC Convertor

What do you have issue with,? I have a little problem with Eric saying there is no Neutral on the shore power. Other than that, If its the issue about ABYC being somehow at variance with Amel practice for good reason. he may not be able to even if he were qualified. Remember Amel complied with Euro practice. Anyhow please accept what he says as a opinion, but there would be plenty others who would agree, its mainly related with issues of accelerated Electrolytic action/shore power/ABYC boats.
Waverider apoligies to eric.

There is no Neutral on the Amel shore power.
The engine and Generator have a floating ground. In other words the motors are only connected to the boat ground when they are starting.

All the other gear on the Amel is connected together with a green and yellow wire which is connected to ithe rudder stock and the two zincs on the ruder. The amel does not conform to AYC standards for a number of good reasons.
