Year: 2014
Language: english

Genre: Guide

Edition: 1
Format: PDF

Pages count: 28
Description: This document is an explanatory guide for checking marine electrical systems. There are some great, detailed publications on this subject and I recommend them for additional reading when you have the time…
For now, this check list will get you started with a minimum of reading. I summarised points from Canadian, American and British marine wiring regulations. However, I did not quote these publications exhaustively so don't consider Marine Electrical Check List a legal document.
Before working on your system, clarify any confusing points with a professional electrician.
