Full ship Charles isolation transformer - electrically
isolates the AC shore power from the boat's AC power system. The
boat's electrical system and the grounding conductor are not actually
connected to the shore-side power. There is no direct electrical
connection between earth-grounded shore AC power and the on
board electrical system. The shore ground is connected to a shield that
is wound between the primary (shore) and the secondary (boat)
transformer winding. The connection of this grounding wire only to the
shield of the transformer isolates the boat's AC electrical system from
shore. Greatly reduces potential for in-water shock hazard also
eliminates the need for polarity alarms and galvanic isolators.
