ELECTRICITY ON BOARD
ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ON MERCHANT VESSELS AND PLEASURE BOATS
We create electrical systems on merchant ships, ships and pleasure boats, installation of on-board tools and equipment such as: battery chargers, charge distributors, inverters, GPS Plotter, navigation and government systems, wind station, state of charge monitoring systems , tank levels, AIS, Navtex, galvanic isolator (zinc saver), DC / DC voltage converter with galvanic isolation and anything else related to on-board electricity
VHF AND HF (SSB) RADIO SYSTEMS
WATERMAKERS INSTALL & MAINTENANCE
On board electricity also includes installation, maintenance and repair of watermakers, check with a salinometric probe of the quality of the produced water, replacement of filters, complete preparation for prolonged or winter parking, washing the membranes with special solutions
WE ONLY USE HIGH-LEVEL PRODUCTS
For the realization of our on-board electricity services, we only use high quality products, including – for the wiring and connected accessories – Ancor Marine Grade ™ designed in accordance with the most stringent standards such as those dictated by safety regulations. UL 1426 and USCG (US Coast Guard – Charter boat), meeting the ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) technical specifications and approved by the NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association).
The proprietary vinyl coating of Ancor cables makes them extremely flexible even at temperatures down to -40 ° C and resistant to abrasions, sea water, battery acid, oil, diesel and ultraviolet radiation ensuring insulation up to 600 volts in temperatures conditions up to 105 ° C in dry conditions and 75 ° C in a humid environment.
PHENOMENA OF CORROSION
CORROSION TESTS ON MARINE UNITS
Corrosion tests are carried out on marine units with the aid of a Silver/Silver Chloride (Ag/AgCl) half cell in order to verify the necessary and correct anodic protection and exclude the presence of harmful galvanic currents. In this context, it is also always necessary to check for any “stray currents” or leaks, which are far more damaging than the former.
ESSENTIAL INSULATION CHECKS
The essential insulation checks between the different metal structures of the unit and all other equipment, are carried out only and exclusively with the unit in dry condition. We like to know the electricity on board of your boat at 360°
GALVANIC CURRENTS AND CORROSIONS PROBLEMS
Contrary to what is usually widespread, the problem of galvanic currents and the corrosion induced by them does not exclusively concern metals and/or the units built with them. Corrosive phenomena can in fact occur on fiberglass structures, wood and other composites. Pay attention to galvanic currents and never skimp on the care of the on-board electrical system!!
PLANNED AND PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE
With planned and personalized checks during the entire period of parking, we take care of your systems, thus ensuring the long-lasting existence of your unit and consequently the market value that a perfectly efficient boat deserves. For us, the on-board electrical system does not know how to store
REASONS FOR PROBLEMS OF THE ON-BOARD ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
Most of the problems associated with the on-board electrical systems occur due to poor maintenance and/or inactivity. It is in the period of storage (or non-use) that the best conditions occur that can give rise to future problems. Electricity on board also means knowing how to do prevention!
