Blue Sea Systems – Panels, Battery Selectors and Breakers

February 15, 2010

Blue Sea Systems continues to be a leading manufacturer of electrical panels and electrical components for boaters; whether building new or refitting your boat. Go2marine supplies electrical products for powerboats or sailboats as well as commercial and fishing vessels.

The Blue Sea name is synonymous with quality marine electrical products. There is a crafted Blue Sea marine electrical distribution panel to fit every need. Panels are available in AC (alternating current, 110 volts), DC (direct current, 12 volts), a combination of AC/DC as well as waterproof DC panels. As years have gone by, boats have increased in their electrical complexity with the addition of GPS, computers, LED lights and other systems. Blue Seas panels help the average boat owner when doing an electrical panel replacement or installation. Benefits include increased electrical safety as well as updating the panel for the demand in modern electrical use.

DC Weather and Water Resistant Distribution Panels for cockpit, helm and spray situations.

Blue Sea panels are easy to use and modify. There are circuit breakers available to fill open positions left in panels for customization or to replace breakers with ones that more approximate your panel requirements.

Thermal Circuit Breaker / Switch Combination

Thermal circuit breakers combine switching and circuit protection. Typical uses for these are as a switch / breaker to a downrigger, electric outboard, winch or any electric motor. Use in any location where power is coming directly from the battery to an electrical device. These thermal circuit breakers are waterproof and vaporproof and may be used aboard gasoline powered boats with no risk of spark.

Battery Switches

Most modern boats of any size have a battery switch. In a simple system, the battery switch just cuts the electricity from the batteries to the engine, or the “house” (the term for batteries that run the boat electrical systems other than the engine) or both.  As boats get larger, they may use more than one for a variety of reasons. The power coming from a group of batteries is sorted out into banks, for the house and engine. Add to this a separate generator starting battery, inverter and battery charger and you may have more than one switch to direct all the different power sources to the distribution panels or applications. Blue Sea Systems manufacturers a battery selector switch for any application.
