ABYC launches power training

British Columbia-based AC power company Xantrex has partnered with the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) to create a series of videos for installers and do-it-yourselfers about electrical systems, wiring and regulatory compliance.

The series of videos, titled “Power Time”, features Ed Sherman, ABYC’s director of educational programming.

“Ed is not endorsing our products or brand,” said John McMillan, director of sales for Xantrex branded products at Schneider Electric. “Our goal has always been to bring to light critical issues through the eyes of an expert. It is as simple as that.

“From our own research and experience at consumer and trade shows, we have realized that we need to communicate consistently about some of the most commonly encountered technical, troubleshooting and installation challenges,” he said. “For example, a vast majority of people do not know that UL458 with marine supplement is a regulatory standard for electrical products specific to marine applications. Very few products meet this standard.”

To see the video library, visit YouTube and search for “power time xantrex.”
