Galvanic isolator for 99.95 Galvanic Isolator Data Sheet

This is not a fail safe galvanic isolator, they are more expensive as you have found.

The schematic shows how to wire the panel, not the whole system.

Here is a link to ABYC A-28 Galvanic Isolators Standards.

Let there be light(s)!

On Wednesday I got the wires tucked away in their channels, outlet installed, connections made, and main switches flipped to ON.

No sparks, smoke or explosions, just lovely green LEDs softly glowing on the breaker switches and a working GFCI outlet in the main cabin. I declare victory!

Now I can install extra outlets at my leisure, and get back to sailing that girl. Just in time for the good September winds. My plan to use the dead August dog days for maintenance worked perfectly.
