ABYC Standards are American, I know of of no single
country that has adopted them for use outside of the American continent. While other countries might have similar or identical regulations
who is to say where they came from...
The ABYC regulations
for an electrical
solenoid use in gas systems is a good example, as that regulation is a bone of contention and the EU recommends the exact opposite.
Back to the topic - I have the Victron aboard and find that power and load sharing feature to be great; it helps when I fire up the watermaker
, which uses all of the genset's power (and then some), or if I am at a dock
and we experience a brownout or blackout. When plugged into a weak shore power
source I can also regulate how much power goes to the AC and how much to the batteries, another awesome feature.
