Indispensable in professional marine energy systems, the Isolation Transformer eliminates any electrical continuity between shore power and the boat. The shore power is fed to the primary side of the transformer and the ship is connected to the secondary. The Isolation Transformer completely isolates the boat from the shore ground. By connecting all metal parts to the neutral output on the secondary side of the transformer, a GFCI will trip or a fuse will blow in case of a short circuit. It is essential for safety and eliminates the need for galvanic isolators and polarity alarms.
Soft start is a standard feature of a Victron Energy isolation transformer. It will prevent the shore power fuse from blowing due to the inrush current of the transformer, which would otherwise occur. It is also recommended, for optimal safety, to connect the secondary neutral of the transformer to ground when the boat is out of the water.
