Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Shore power plug questions.


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Alan,

Thanks very much for your reply.

Just to make sure, even thought it says 16 amp on the plug, it is ok to connect them to a 32 amp connection and obtain up to 32 amp from them?
The plug will take it ???

To me, it would have been more logical to have:
Power cable coming from the boat terminated with a 32 Amp (and not 16)
Then the extension has 32 Amp on each side.
Then have an adapter that would reduce to a smaller 16 Amp shore plug.


So you would actually connect your vessel (in a ship yard) to the Schuko (black 2 pin) and be able to run freezer, fridge, etc.? up to 16 amp? Or would you limit yourself to much less? The cable seem so small…


Enjoy Noumea! Thanks for your reply, Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,
Apart from the 4 pin red plugs, we
have the same set of plugs and cables plus a few more for
South Pacific connections.
The 16A and 32A plugs are different
sizes. The boat system is 16A, the cable that goes from 16A
socket to 32A plug is so you can plug into a 32A socket on a
dock...some docks eg Taina Marina, Papeete, in some places
have only 32A sockets.
The black 2 pin plug connected to
the 16A socket, allows you to connect to normal European
power outlets, eg in the yard at Nouvile Plaisance in
Noumea, where we are now.
The red ones...I don't know what
they are for, but they look like they haven't been used
in a long while !
Hoep
this helps
