Boat and Marine Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) require sealed powered distribution and circuit protection to safeguard starters, motors, gauges and other peripheral instrumentation from shorts and overloads. Electrical power distribution in marine environments comes with a great deal of challenges that require a more experienced solution. Solutions, or products, that are not always commercially available.
Whether a boat operates in the ocean, sea, rivers or lakes – the electrical system can be exposed to all sorts of contaminants. Dirt, debris, water, salt, heat, cold and sand can wreak havoc on electrical circuitry. Power Distribution Component Manufacturers such as GEP Power Products are well-versed in the design and engineering of products, components and assemblies that are required to perform in these harsh environments.
GEP Power Products Manufactures Power Distribution Modules with the Following Characteristics:
- Corrosion Proof
- Debris Proof
- Dirt Proof
- Dust Proof
- Flame Retarded
- Heavy Duty
- Heat Resistant
- Vibration Proof
For optimum wire retention, GEP’s Power Distribution Modules (PDMs) accept standard Mini and Maxi Fuses, Standard Relays, ISO 280 Relays and Maxi Relays. In addition, Inline Fuse Holders and Power Protection INMIDI and INMEGA Fuse Overmolded Cables – making this option ideal for marine environment’s auxiliary power distribution application.
When a redesign of a boat’s electrical system is in order because of limited space, more power is required, there are unique design challenges, elimination of tangled wire and ease of installation in the production setting is on the priority list – GEP is the answer.
