Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Isolation transformer

I would think the answer depends on the electronic equipment you are running aboard with this current and the rating of the equipment. I do not think there would be a blanket answer of yes or no to your question. You will need to check the acceptable input voltages of the AC units, battery charges, water heater, etc. and determine if they can run with the higher voltages. Most equipment has a label with the acceptable range on it.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Isolation transformer



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.
