GLCI Shore power and ABYC standard E-11.11.1

Postby ericinga » Fri Dec 08, 2017 6:30 am

Has anyone upgraded the shore power system to be compliant with the new GLCI electrical standards? ABYC standard E-11.11.1?

Our marina is upgrading all dock shore power connections with GLCI compliant breakers. I have a sneaking suspicion that our vessel will require the addition of a ELCI panel and upgrades to the internal breaker panel.

I tested our AC circuits for leakage last year. None of them showed continuity leaks in the hot or neutral lines. However, the new GLCI circuits are supposed to be extremely sensitive and will trip with a very small leak.

Our marina has made the switch and no problems so far.
