Safety notices
Beware of RF radiation hazard - An active radar scanner radiates powerful
RF energy. Continuous exposure to RF energy may cause harmful effects to
the human body. It also causes Cardiac Pacemaker to malfunction. A person
who uses a Cardiac Pacemaker should under no circumstances be exposed to
RF radiation.
Note! Most countries accept that RF power density levels below 100 W/m2
cause no significant RF hazard.
Distance vs. specified RF power density level:

Precaution: Do not open the equipment, only authorized Simrad technicians
are qualified to do so. If the glass in the screen breaks, be carefull not to cut
yourself on the sharp edges of the glass pieces. There is high voltage present
inside the scanner which may also be present even after power is turned off.
) The lifetime of the internal battery is minimum 5 years. If not exchanged
before it goes flat, all data in the unit’s memory will be lost. We strongly
recommend that you frequently store your data on a Simrad DataCard. For
exchange of battery, call your local Simrad workshop.
Power source, fuse and power cable: Check that the DC power supplied to
the unit is within the range of 10 to 32 volts. Note that the appropriate fuse
must be employed (see fuse ratings in the Specifications). Ensure that the
power cord is firmly attached.
Grounding: To reduce electrical interference and risk of electrical shock,
properly ground the NavStation to the ship’s ground using the ground screw
at the rear of the unit. Good grounding should also be exercised for connected
equipment.
Cleaning: Do not use any kind of strong solvents e.g. spirit, alcohol, gasoline
or oils.
Software: The software version of the main unit (see start-up display) should
always be informed in a service situation, or when ordering a Dual Station.

1.6 Connection between main unit and Dual Station
The DS34/44/54-CX models are remote control units for all the main units in
the CX34/44/54 serie. The units with the same model numbers are identical in
size e.g. DS44-CX and CX44, so the same installation guides can be applied
when performing the installation. When choosing a dual station, the unit does
not have to match the main unit in size, as all the mentioned units are compatible. Example:
Main unit CX44
Ground
Dual Station DS34-CX
15 meters of cable

The internal voltage regulator will allow the CX34/44/54 to operate normally
within the power supply voltage range from 10 to 32 V DC. The CX34/44/54
is connected to external power (battery or radar supply box) by means of the
supplied power cable, which is approximately 2 meters long and is not extendable. After connecting the cable to the power source, push the plug as far as it
will go into the four pin receptacle marked “PWR” on the rear of the cabinet
and turn the plug’s coupling ring clockwise until it makes a click.
1.8.2 Fuse
Warning! A fuse should always be installed to protect the unit.
Using a fuse which is not specified for your equipment can cause it to blow the
instant the CX34/44/54 is switched on or it will not protect the equipment as
intended – see fuse rating in section 1.14 Specifications.
1.8.3 Transducer connection
Most transducers are supplied with a 10 meter cable for connection to the
echosounder unit – CX34/44/54. Push the female plug, as far as it goes, into
the receptacle on CX34 marked “ECHO”, or on CX44/54 marked “ECHO1”
or/and “ECHO2” on the rear of the cabinet and turn the plug’s coupling ring

1.8.4 Interface connection
The 34, 44 and 54 series feature three possibilities for interconnection and
data sharing:
1.
SimNet, which is recommended for control and data sharing
between Simrad SimNet products.
2.
NMEA2000, SimNet products will interface and share data with
NMEA2000 based products.
3.
NMEA0183, which has been the common standard for marine electronics. Interface connections are made to the receptacle on CX34
marked “NMEA”, or on CX44/54 marked “NMEA1” or “NMEA2”
on the rear of the cabinet – turn the plug’s coupling ring clockwise
until it stops.
)
The unit must be turned off while connecting/disconnecting the
interface cable.
SimNet is a high-speed control and data network designed to integrate SimNet
products into a complete system. Ready-made cables with small plugs makes
it easy to run cables. Only 10 mm (3/8”) holes are required through panels and
bulkheads. The SimNet accessory program contains the necessary items to
make a successful installation, see section 1.14 Specifications.
Plug and Play - once all products are connected and power is switched on, the
entire network system will be set up automatically and will ensure optimum
performance.
SimNet interface connection for CX34 is made directly to the receptacle
marked NET on the rear of the cabinet. Use a Tee Joiner to make a drop
connection from the SimNet system to the NET receptacle.
SimNet connection to CX44 and CX54 is made via AT44, which is a special
SimNet to NMEA converter with a plug for the NMEA2 receptacle and two
sockets for SimNet.

1.9 Installation of GPS / DGPS antenna
The antenna must be placed in a position where tall
constructions, steel wires, masts, etc. do not obstruct
the view to the satellites. Do not, however, mount
the antenna in the top of a mast or tower, as this
may degrade the COG and SOG readings, especially
if DGPS is used. Do not place the antenna close
to sources of electrical inteference, such as radar,
satcom, etc. If installing the GPS antenna close to
other antennas it must be placed either above or below
the radiation beams. There is full coverage down to
20° below the horizon.
Avoid installing the GPS antenna inside the beam
areas.
Mounting of DGPS antenna MGL-3
Mount the antenna on a standard US 1” 14 thread
pipe, or optional standard antenna mount. Tighten
firmly, but only by hand - no use of tools. Attach the
antenna cable to the TNC socket.
Mounting of GPS antenna GPS 5
Pull the cable through the mounting base and fix the
mounting base onto a mount with standard US 1” 14
thread. Tighten firmly, but only by hand. Attach the
antenna cable to the TNC socket. Firmly press the
antenna onto the mounting base till it snaps into a
locked position.
The antenna can also be deck mounted or fixed on
a flat surface. Drill a 15 mm hole for the cable and
three 5 mm holes for the fixing screws. Pull the
cable through and connect to the TNC socket. Apply
silicone adhesive along the outer circle of the antenna
and press it into place. Use the included screws to
secure the antenna.

1.12 Basic transducer and cable information
The installation should be carefully planned in advance, keeping in mind the
standard cable length of 10 meters (32 feet) which is connected to the transducer. In the event where the standard cable is not long enough, up to an additional 10 meters (32 feet) may be connected without a noticeable reduction of
the performance. The cable must be of the same type as the standard cable.
) The unit must be turned off while connecting/disconnecting the transducer
cable.
The use of longer cable runs, while possible, always increases the likelihood of
increased interference and decreased performance. Care must be taken when
increasing the cable lengths to ensure that proper, adequate and consistent
shielding is maintained, that cable of adequate cross section is used, and that
all connections are properly made and protected from the effects of the marine
environment.
If possible, running the transducer cable through a grounded conduit will
greatly decrease the likelihood of interference. Likewise, the transducer cable
should be run as far as possible from other electrical cabling. If it is absolutely
necessary to pass close to other cabling, it is best to keep as much distance as
possible, and to make all crossings as close to a right angle as possible.
Only applicable for CX44/54 models:
The CX44/54’s transmitter is designed to match Simrad 1kW 75 ohms high
performance transducers described in section 1.12.1 Transducers.
However, when using a 600 W single element transducer e.g. B744V, the 1kW
output signal from the echosounder is automatically reduced due to the difference of impedance in the transmitter, which is 75 ohms, and the transducer,
which is 185 to 425 ohms. See Echosounder setup in the CX44/54 operator
manual, for correct setting of the transducer selected.
! Warning!
Transducers containing speed log sensor e.g. Airmar B744V must never be
connected to the port “ECHO2”. To avoid accidental connection, “ECHO2” is
sealed with a small silicone plug, which of course is removable so e.g. a combi
transducer can be connected.

1.12.2 Determining the position for the transducer
The CX34/44/54 is a sophisticated piece of electronic equipment, but how well
it will perform under actual operating conditions will be largely dependent
upon the location of the transducer and how it has been installed.
Careful consideration, therefore, must be given to selecting the mounting location and on deciding the method of installation that best suits the vessel.
Air bubbles and turbulence caused by the vessel’s movement through the
water will seriously degrade the transducer’s performance. Therefore the
transducer should be located well clear of any water intake or discharge line
and also clear of any projection along the hull line which might disturb the
smooth flow of water. It is of profound importance for good performance of
the CX34/44/54 that the water flowing over the transducer be free of bubbles
and aeration. If the transducer face is clean but the performance degrades with
increasing vessel speed, then aeration of the water flowing under the transducer may be the cause of the poor performance.
Due to the varying design of ship’s hulls and different operating speeds, there
Installation 1 - 28
CX34/44/54 NavStation
can be great variation in the amount of air bubbles which are carried beneath
the hull. These bubbles tend to be carried close to the hull as they pass aft. For
this reason, it is desirable for the transducer to be mounted on a fairing block
which holds the transducer away from the hull and which directs the flow of
aerated water around the sides of the transducer rather than over the face of
the transducer.
On deep keeled vessels, care must be taken to ensure that the transducer beam
will not be blocked by any part of the keel. Although the appropriate mounting location that meets all requirements depends on the type of vessel and its
normal operating speeds, a practical choice is usually somewhere between
one third and one half of the vessel’s water line length from the bow. Leveling
blocks may be designed accordingly to meet this requirement.
) The more the transducer protrudes from the hull, the better the results will be.
Particularly at lower frequency operation (38 and 50kHz), interference from
propeller noise can be a significant problem. This can be seen as an increase in
the “noise” on the echosounder display when the propeller speed is increased.
To help reduce this, the transducer’s mounting face may be angled slightly
forward on the order of 3-5°. The goal is to incline the transducer so that a line
of sight along the transducer’s radiating surface passes below the propeller.
) Keeping the propeller clean and free of any nicks or roughness will assist in
minimizing interference from propeller noise due to cavitation.
Sources of noise to consider:
Water/air

Air bubbles
Turbulence
Propeller
Acoustic noise

How to determine the site of installation
A radar’s target detection capacity varies greatly depending on the fitted position of the scanner. An ideal fitting position is a location high above the ship’s
keel line where there is no obstacle all around the scanner. In an actual ship,
such an ideal location is limited by various factors. Therefore, consider the following suggestions when you determine the place to install the scanner:
A. Install scanner away from smoke-stack and mast
If the scanner is installed at the same height as the smoke-stack or mast, radar
waves may be blocked, crating shadow zones or generating false echoes.
Therefore, do not install the scanner at such a position.
B. Install scanner forward away from obstacle
To avoid creating shadow zones or generating false echoes, install the scanner
at a position nearer to the ship’s bow away from obstacles. When installing
the scanner on a mast, position it in front of the mast. If obstacles cannot be
avoided for the ship’s structural reasons, refer to “Shifting away from obstacles” described in section 1.13.1.
C. Do not install the scanner near hot or heat-generating items
Do not install the scanner at a position where it may be subjected to smoke or
hot air from smoke-stacks or heat from lamps.
D. Install the scanner away from antennas or other equipment
Install the scanner as far away as possible from the antennas of a direction
finder, radio transceiver, etc..
Installation 1-30
CX34/44/54-series
1.13.1 Shifting away from obstacles
Shifting from keel line: By shifting the scanner position from the keel line to
the starboard side of the ship, it is possible to move shadow zones to the port
side which makes it possible to keep a clear vision in the bow direction. The
distance to be shifted can be obtained by calculation depending on the distance from the scanner to obstacles using the following equation:
Ls=0.4R+D/2 [m]
(when R<15 m)
Ls=0.025R+D/2 [m]
(when R>15 m)
where
Ls= distance to be shifted from keel line
D= diameter of obstacle on keel line
R= distance from scanner to obstacle
Scanner unit
Obstacle
D
Ls

R
Obtaining sufficient dip angle: Raise the scanner position so that there is a
sufficient dip angle available between the line of sight from the scanner to the
obstacle and the horizontal line. By raising the dip angle above 5° it is possible to prevent mid and long distance shadow zones. The radar cannot detect
objects below the line of sight.

1.13.2 Mounting of scanner
Deciding the place of installation, a minimum distance must be considered to
the master compass (2 meters) and steering compass (1.4 meters). If a mount
base like the one shown below is available, it may be easier to install the
scanner. If not available, you may install the scanner directly to the roof, etc.
In this case, pay attention to the water drain tube located at the bottom of the
scanner unit during installation.
) When the radar mast or mounting bracket has a curvature of more than
2 mm, repair it or use spacers.
