Isolation Transformer vs Polarization Transformer?

Question:

I am thinking about an isolation transformer. After reading an article online,  I'm not sure if a polarization transformer is better? I'm considering the Victron 3600 watt isolation transformer. What do you think? Thanks -  Marty

Answer:

Thanks for reaching out with your question.  While the polarization transformer will help with regulation of dockside voltage and reverse polarity issues, it does not carry the secondary function of being a galvanic isolator.  ABYC compliant isolation transformers have an extremely low failure rate and statistically have been proven to be the safter option.

We have worked with the Victron isolation transformers, they are a great option and even come in a model that will automatically adjust for 120/240v shore input.
