The Victron isolation transformer is essential for preventing electrolytic corrosion and to guarantee a safe electrical system on board boats. It eliminates electrical continuity between AC shore power and the boat and eliminates the need for galvanic isolators and polarity alarms.
When using shore power, if the ground wire from the shore supply is connected to a metal part of the boat, galvanic corrosion will occur. This can attack important areas such as the propeller and shaft, as well as quickly dissolving anodes that are there to protect them. Not connecting the ground wire is not a viable work around for this, as this would mean fuses and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) will not work in case of an electrical fault. This isolation transformer was designed to combat these issues and allow a safe shore power connection that is not harmful to your boat. Shore power is connected directly to the primary side of the transformer and the secondary side runs to the boat. The device completely isolates the boat from the shore power ground connection and eliminates electrical continuity between the shower power and the boat, while still offering protection through GFCIs and fuses.
The Victron ITR040202041 features a soft start electrical system to prevent the shore power fuse from blowing, as well as a circuit breaker on the input side. It is quiet when in operation and is relatively light due to its aluminium construction. It can be used to transform 115V to 115V, 115V to 230V, 230V to 115V or 230V to 230V. This does not affect the frequency, if your input is 50Hz, the output is 50Hz. If your input is 60Hz, the output will be 60Hz.
