Paneltronics's new Automatic Load Shedding System automatically drops up to three user-specified loads to limit total current draw from shore power or generators, and automatically restores power when total load current drops below the specified limit.

The system, which can be installed on new boats and on existing installations, allows boat owners to avoid the nuisance tripping of the main and branch circuit breakers, according to the company. New production applications will give OEMs flexibility by providing additional features and options, while avoiding the costly addition of the second power cord, according to the company. It is designed for 120VAC, single 30-amp shore cords and generators up to 75 amps. The display panel shows load condition for each load; digital ammeter indicates total system load and amps to restore loads. MSRP is $689; OEM prices range from about $300 to $400, depending on volume. Contact: Paneltronics, (800) 367-2635. www.paneltronics.com
