I found the switch it is like the one behind the DC panel in the galley. Really big switches that take up space I will be swapping these out for much smaller ones and labeling them for the next owner. Way to much time spent identifying wires.
Thomas where is this wooden panel? You mention finding an on/ off switch.
We also have an on/off switch for the permanent, but Amel relocated it behind the wooden panel on the starboard side of the chart table. Not sure why, it’s not easier/more difficult to access there...

On WASABI we have the same setup, except that there is a separate “Permanent ON/OFF” Switch under the converter (see picture).
I suppose you have another ON/OFF configuration on the Permanent and therefore they bridged the +0 on input and output.
Probably GARULFO do not have a ON/OFF Switch for the Converter Input and therefore the bridge makes your converter permanent as permanent 😉
The other 2 converter are just switched on when you push the green “INSTRUMENTS” button at the chart table next to the window.

On GARULFO, and I suspect on other A54s and maybe SM, there are three 24VDC to 12VDC converters, marked “permanent”, “hydra/iscan v90” and “VHF icom”.
Of those, only the “permanent” one has the input +0V and the output +0V posts connected.
Does anyone know why that is?
Why shouldn’t the other 2 be the same?
