Galvanic Isolator VDI-16 and VDI-32 Overview

The Galvanic Isolator VDI-16 and VDI-32 serve as protective barriers against electrolytic corrosion in marine settings. Specifically designed for boats, they effectively block low-voltage DC currents that might infiltrate the vessel through the shore power's grounding wire. Such currents can accelerate corrosion on critical underwater components like the hull, propellers, and shafts.

Internally, these isolators incorporate two diodes interconnected in an anti-parallel configuration. This setup permits current flow in both directions, but only when it exceeds a specific threshold voltage of approximately 1.4 Vdc.

Positioned immediately after your boat's 230V connection point, the Galvanic Isolator creates a forward voltage that surpasses the natural potential difference between various metals on the boat. This differential voltage acts as a deterrent, preventing the flow of electrolytic current. However, in scenarios where an elevated error voltage is detected within the AC system, the diodes permit the current to pass. In such instances, the built-in residual-current device steps in to interrupt the circuit, ensuring safety and protection against potential damage.
