When it comes to electricity, safety is paramount. Hubbell Marine now offers 15 and 25 kVA Isolation Transformers with an optional 12.5% Auto-Boost. They solve low-voltage issues, safeguard sensitive electronic equipment onboard, prevent galvanic corrosion from reversed polarity and protect swimmers from potentially lethal stray current shock.

During start-up, Hubbell Auto-Boost immediately assesses the electrical system and can automatically boost the output by 12.5% to compensate for low voltage.

After initial power-up, it enters static mode or can monitor and regulate voltage every hour in dynamic mode. The remote control panel is easily programmed to boost from a range of 190V up to 220V. It has a 9.7m cable for mounting in a convenient location.

Hubbell Marine's Isolation Transformers are more compact than the competition. The 15kVA model is 43cm H x 35.9cm W x 29.4cm D and 77kg. The 25kVA unit is 113kg and 46.8cm H x 41cm W x 33.9cm D.

Both are available in vibration-resistant, white powder-coated steel or 316 stainless steel enclosures. They are designed to function with 50 and 100 amp systems and feature two full current-carrying shields.
