The EZ-Mount Battery Switch by BEP was honored today for innovative achievement by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and Boating Writers International at the 2014 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show.
The Mechanical and Electrical Systems award is given to the product that best features an innovative way of solving traditional installation and maintenance challenges. EZ-Mount Battery Switches set a new benchmark with outstanding ergonomics, intuitive look/feel, and finest materials to withstand the harsh marine environment. The unique, innovative design allows you to wire from the front, resulting in the fastest, most compact installations. Optimized cable access makes installation a breeze.
“These will save you time and your knuckles,” Lenny Rudow, senior editor for Dominion Marine Media said.
The Innovation Awards, organized by NMMA and judged by BWI, recognize products that best meet the following criteria: innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured; benefit to the marine industry and/or consumer; practicality; cost-effectiveness; and availability to the consumer within 60 days of award receipt.
“As judges, every year we debate the idea of innovation amongst many great products,” Innovation Awards judge chairwoman Zuzana Prochazka said in a statement. “We look forward to seeing how these products adapt in the marketplace and advance recreational boating.”
