You may notice that this article is quite short. After a few comments (scroll down) and a number of email discussions on the side, I decided to remove the content of this article and replace it with this info.
There are serious concerns over the way this product was installed, and whether it is fully ABYC compliant.
It is clear to me that the installation represents a credible shock hazard – the exact opposite of what I was trying to achieve.
At this time, it does not look like this product is ABYC Standard E-11 compliant in how it is grounded and also in terms of UL 1561.
I pride myself in documenting projects with technically backed, facts based research. I consulted with an ABYC electrician prior to purchasing, and during the install of this product. I also contacted the manufacturer and asked questions about the product. At no point was it outlined that this product does not fully conform to all necessary ABYC standards.
As such, I do not recommend the product at this time, and have removed it from use on my boat.
If I get updated information from the manufacturer, I will be sure to post it here. Otherwise, I would suggest looking at traditional isolation transformers from Victron and other manufacturers.
Thanks for your patience!
