Protect passengers and swimmers by adding an ELCI breaker traditional metal panel
Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupter (ELCI) breaker panels protect not only everyone on your boat, but also those in the surrounding water from accidental electric shock. A ground failure in an appliance (ground fault) or a loose grounding wire (faulty ground) can create a dangerous and possibly life threatening situation. Current if leaked into the water can paralyze swimmers causing them to drown. The risk is significantly higher in fresh or brackish water.
A Blue Sea Systems A-Series ELCI main breaker is built into this panel and will trip if there is an imbalance in current between hot and neutral conductors caused by a faulty ground or ground fault. Green LED indicates the breaker is in the ON position and a Red LED alerts users to reverse polarity. Installation of an ELCI breaker, when installed following their guidelines, meets ABYC E-11 requirements.
