Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Isolation transformer


That is a really good question. I am not sure, but in places like Malaysia and others, you will find shore power at 260VAC 50htz. My experience is that around the world 50htz power will normally vary from 220 to 260. Of course, I also saw voltages as low as 180 in Greece.

Hi All, i am just installing a Victron Isolation transformer. My input voltage from the pedestal is 245V and my output voltage from the transformer 259.5Volts 60hz.

Is this ok to run thru the boat? It seems a lot high in fact getting 240v from the pedestal surprised me.
