Stray AC current leaking into the water from faulty marina or boat wiring can be lethal if someone falls in from a dock or deck. Avoiding such a tragedy is simple with the addition of a SmartPlug ELCI (equipment leakage circuit interrupter). Similar to a residential ground fault circuit interrupter, it instantly trips the breaker if a problem is detected to stop all electrical flow.
A two-piece system, the SmartPlug ELCI Kit is comprised of a sensor and a 30A or 50A Breaker. The combination meets ABYC E-11 standards for ground fault protection and shore power circuit interruption. Both units have a UV-resistant enclosure housed in SmartPlug’s uniquely-designed but standard-size stainless steel or white non-metallic inlet.
Completely automatic upon power-up, the SmartPlug ELCI element is UL-943 listed, has power and fault status indicators, and test and reset buttons. The rocker switch breaker is UL-489 listed with a trip level of <30mA (27mA nominal) at a trip time of <100mS (60mS nominal). Running on 120V AC or 120/240V AC, 50/60 Hz, it’s rated to operate between -31° and 150° F.
Installation of the system is simple with common household tools. The combination accommodates up to three wires, 6 AWG, with no twisting required.
