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 one of 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.
