Hi Kent,

the 220VAC monitor would be a good idea for JoEmi.

I've used my 110-220 inverter on several occasions, don't exceed the 16A and you should be fine.  Does JoEmi have a 220VAC monitor? It's a worthwhile addition.

Good morning Olivier,

If the marina only has 30 Amp 125 Volt shore power AND your vessel is equipped with the Transformer then this might help you.

I have not used mine yet as all the places now are 220 volt…

Remember what Olivier (Beaute) wrote last year: DO NOT EXCEED 16 AMP on the shore power.

Thank you so much.
The marina told me,
that they have also a 30 Amp 125V shore power.On my boat we have the
additional Amel equipment of a 110 V Transformator. I think
that the 30 Amp US plug has only 3 wires. Could it be better
using the 110V Transfo?I'm a little bit
concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel
almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot.
I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was
made from Amel for using it in the US.

Oliver,
You can get the plug at most marine
supply shops. It cost about $100USD.
Very carefully follow these
instructions at your own risk: instrustions: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/albums/1949812811/lightbox/609539505?orderBy=ordinal&sortOrder=asc&photoFilter=ALL#zax/609539505

Bill,

that's why I wrote the second e-mail with the other opportunity of the shore power 110 V and my transformer. In the first e-mail,I was not thinking about using the transformer because I would use the 240 V of the marina.
You are right to mention it, because we have always be very careful with the electricity.

Regards

Oliver

Oliver,

Your original email said nothing of a transformer. How can we know how to answer your questions without​ all of the information?

I strongly suggest that you ask the marina for a certified electrician.

Oliver, it is better to use the 230V 50 amp plug. The 110-230V step up transformer is limited in its capabilities and can get rather hot. If you have the electrician at Deltaville follow the instructions you have been given ( Eric is an electrical engineer from MIT as well as a jeweler, a bon vivant and… ) you will be better served by the 230V system

 

The 110V step up transformer is something we developed to ease North Americans into a boat buying decision as these clients are generally uncertain about 230V power. Once they got their boat in la Rochelle and had Olivier Beaute show them that 230V works better for everything, hardly anyone used the 110V step up transformer.

 

Be VERY CAREFUL regarding 60 cycle USA 230V which will destroy things that require 50 cycle European 230V. You can only use the battery chargers, the air conditioning and the hot water heater when plugged into USA 230V 60 cycle shore power. TURN ALL THE OTHER 230V CIRCUIT BREAKERS OFF AT THE MASTER 230V PANEL.

Thank you so much.

 

The marina told me, that they have also a 30 Amp 125V shore power.

On my boat we have the additional Amel equipment of a 110 V Transformator. I think that the 30 Amp US plug has only 3 wires. Could it be better using the 110V Transfo?

I'm a little bit concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot. I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was made from Amel for using it in the US.

Oliver,

 

You can get the plug at most marine supply shops. It cost about $100USD.

Good morning Olivier,

If the marina only has 30 Amp 125 Volt shore power AND your vessel is equipped with the Transformer then this might help you.
http://nikimat.com/shore_power_plug_125_volt.html

I have not used mine yet as all the places now are 220 volt…

Remember what Olivier (Beaute) wrote last year: DO NOT EXCEED 16 AMP on the shore power.

Oliver,

Your original email said nothing of a transformer. How can we know how to answer your questions without​ all of the information?

I strongly suggest that you ask the marina for a certified electrician.

Thank you so much.

The marina told me, that they have also a 30 Amp 125V shore power.
On my boat we have the additional Amel equipment of a 110 V Transformator. I think that the 30 Amp US plug has only 3 wires. Could it be better using the 110V Transfo?
I'm a little bit concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot. I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was made from Amel for using it in the US.

Regards

Oliver,

You can get the plug at most marine supply shops. It cost about $100USD.

Hello,


we are now in the US  and we need an adaptor to get shore power.


We have the 3 prong Euro plug and need an adapter for the 240 V  US shore power.


Does anybody knows where I can get it or how I can link the 3 wires from the European plug to the 4 wires of the US shore power?


Thank you in advance
