Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 'Cristec Devolteur'

Hi Woody,
"Devolteur" means "step down" or "buck", so I'm going to guess it's a DC-DC converter of some kind.  It seems to be made by this company.  I don't see anything exactly like it on their website, but perhaps you could contact them and ask if they can identify it from the photo.  I do not believe it to be original, but I'm pretty new to this stuff, so take that with a grain of salt.

I think it's unlikely that the voltages at the bottom represent the input and output, unless for some reason you have some 32V circuitry on your boat.  I suspect that is the input voltage range.  Maybe it makes 12V, like the converters at the nav station?  It could even be a DC-DC charger for the 12V starting battery.

I can't seem to find any reference to this transformer - see picture - on the forums. Is it an add-on by a previous owner or an Amel original?  If so.. erm, what exactly is it for as I can't seem to trace the wires to anywhere?

Thanks in advance
