Xantrex of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is collaborating with the American Boat & Yacht Council on a series of videos called “Power Time” that is designed to complement its “Tech Doctor” program.
Ed Sherman, ABYC’s director of educational programming is a firm supporter of programs that create awareness about electrical systems, wiring and regulatory compliance.
“Ed is not endorsing our products or brand. Our goal has always been to bring to light critical issues through the eyes of an expert. It is as simple as that,” said John McMillan, director of sales for Xantrex branded products at Schneider Electric.
“We have done a lot of work for the industry education but we need to do more. 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. 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. The new video series continues our legacy and we are proud of it,” McMillan said.
