1 - Mounting the isolator: The IM2160 galvanic isolator unit should be mounted using the screws provided and located in a position that will not be subjected to excessive heat (e.g. close to the engine or exhaust system). It should also be positioned as close as possible to the shore power connector â€“ the point at which the mains electricity supply enters the vessel.
2 - Disconnect the boat from the shore power and ensure that all on-board generators, inverters and electrical appliances are switched off.
3 - Disconnect the earth cable (green) from the shore power connector and connect this to the "VESSEL" terminal on the galvanic isolator using 6mm ring terminals.
4 - Connect a new cable from the earth terminal in the shore power socket to the "SHORE" terminal of the galvanic isolator using 6mm ring terminals. Ensure that the cable selected for making connections to the galvanic isolator is rated for electric current equal to or greater than the current rating of the galvanic isolator.
