Safe, Dependable Power
Have Safe, Dependable Power When Abroad
December 1, 2019
Boats provide the freedom to explore distant shores, but owners need to be prepared for shore power connections abroad that are different from those used in North America. Internationally-rated systems from Hubbell Marine are the only CE-certified electrical shore power products designed for vessels voyaging far from home.
Using familiar marine styling in a choice of traditional 316 stainless steel or white non-metallic construction, Hubbell offers an array of outlets, connectors and shore power cords for international use. These 16A/20A, 30A/32A and 60A/63A, 220-240V/250V systems feature fully watertight seals, nickel-plated rear enclosures and nickel-plated contact blades for maximum corrosion resistance.
The innovative design of the connector housing allows it to directly engage the cable to support a secure connection to the pressure-screw terminals. A unique thermoset interior resists arcing and heat build-up, while 16A and 32A models include a clear polycarbonate interior for easy visual inspection.
Built to National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (NEMA) configurations, internationally-rated products are not interchangeable with US systems. Hubbell does offer internationally-rated pin-and-sleeve devices that match both North American and international configurations, using a two-pole plus earth connection. Suggested retail prices for Hubbell Marine internationally-rated system components start at $59.95.
