The Galvanic Isolator blocks DC electrolysis currents from flowing in the ground conductor of your shore power hookup. It provides approximately 1.2 volts of isolation to isolate electrolytic voltages from the dock but yet pass safety currents to ground in the event of a short circuit, or power leakage on your boat.
