EQ33-2 Introduction and safety summary
Chapter 1-1
1.1 Introduction and system familiarization
Congratulations on your purchase of SIMRAD EQ33-2 Echosounder and
Fishfinder - a high performance echosounder in a unique slim-line design
with a bright 6” TFT color display.
The EQ33-2 is both an echosounder system with selectable frequency i.e. 50
and 200 kHz, providing an impression of what is to be found in the water
under the vessel, and it is a repeater for navigational data from connected GPS
receiver.
The SimNet data and control network provides high speed data transfer and
control between Simrad products that are integrated as a total navigation,
steering and communication system on board.
How to use this manual?
It is a good idea if you make yourself familiar with the key functions, menu
structure and rotation of pages (screens) described in chapter 2 before you
start out, and then proceed with section 2.5 Initial start-up. For quick location
of a certain term, please check the “Glossary of terms” and the “Index” at the
back of the manual. Also, “How to get started” further on in this chapter will
give you a quick introduction to some of the features you have access to in
your new echosounder.
The display examples shown in this manual are not always an exact copy of
what you will see on the screen, as the presentation depends on your system
configuration and choices of setup.
How to interpret special marked key symbols etc. in the manual:
+/-
Either the + (plus) or - (minus) key may be applied.

1.2 Safety summary
Precaution: Do not open the equipment, only qualified persons should work
inside the equipment. If the glass in the screen breaks, be careful not to cut
yourself on the sharp edges of the glass pieces.
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 the fuse rating in section 10.9 Specifications). Ensure
that the power cord is firmly attached.
Grounding: To reduce electrical interference and risk of electrical shock,
properly ground the unit to the ship’s ground using the ground screw at the
rear of the unit. Good grounding should also be exercised for any equipment
connected to the EQ33-2.
Quality service personnel: The EQ33-2 is sealed and does not contain any
user serviceable parts. Opening of the unit will void its warranty. Touching
electrical parts inside may cause bodily harm. If the unit is not working properly, check sections 10.6 Preventive maintenance, 10.7 Repair and service, and
10.8 Troubleshooting. If your EQ33-2 requires servicing or repair, call your
authorized SIMRAD dealer.
Glossary of terms: If you have never used an echosounder before or if you are
unsure of how a term is used in this manual, then turn to Appendix A - Glossary of terms.
Default settings: All user implemented data in the EQ33-2 can be erased by
making a reset of the unit and thus return to factory default settings.
Cleaning: Do not use any kind of strong solvents e.g. spirit, alcohol, gasoline
or oils.

EQ33-2 Echosounder operation
Chapter 5-1
5. Echosounder operation
The echosounder function of the EQ33-2 determines the distance
between its transducer and underwater objects such as fish, lake
bottom or sea bed. It does this by utilizing the fact that an ultrasonic
wave transmitted through water travels at a nearly constant speed
of 4800 feet (1500 meters) per second. When a sound wave strikes
an underwater object such as fish or sea bottom, part of the sound
wave is reflected back toward the source. Thus by calculating the
time difference between the transmission of a sound wave and the
reception of the reflected sound wave, the depth to the object can be
determined.
The entire process begins in the display unit. Transmitter power is
sent to the transducer as a short pulse of electrical energy. The electrical signal produced by the transmitter is converted into an ultrasonic signal by the transducer and transmitted into the water. Any
reflected signals from intervening objects (such as a fish school)
are received by the transducer and converted back into an electrical signal. It is then amplified in the amplifier section, and finally,
displayed on the screen.
The picture displayed is made up of a series of vertical scan lines
(pings), one for each transmission. Each line represents a ‘snapshot’
of what has occurred beneath the boat. The series of snapshots are
accumulated side by side across the screen, and the resulting contours of the bottom and fish between the bottom and surface are
displayed.
Selecting echosounder displays
The EQ33-2 provides various types of echosounder displays: standard echogram, A-scope, bottom expansion (zoom), VRM expansion
and shift mode. Each display has its special advantages. Select the
appropriate setup for the echosounder display in the presentation
“Setup” and “Echosounder setup” displays, considering current sea
area and target fish.

EQ33-2 Echosounder operation
Chapter 5-7
Range start – allows the user to set the displayed depth range to
begin at some point below the surface. For example, a 100 meter displayed range can be “phased” downwards, so that the screen shows
a 100 meter section beginning at, say, 200 meters and going to 300
meters depth.
Range – refers to the distance shown from the top to the bottom of
the display screen. Selecting Auto range will cause the EQ33-2 to
change the basic range setting(s) to keep the displayed bottom in
the lower half of the display. For instance, as your boat moves into
deeper waters, the system will automatically switch to a deeper
range, always keeping the displayed bottom in the lower half of the
display. Manual range allows the operator to set the range displayed
on the screen.
Gain – is another way of saying “sensitivity”, or possibly “volume”.
Increasing the gain setting of the EQ33-2 will allow you to see
smaller and deeper targets. If the gain is set too high, however, you
will begin to see “noise” and unwanted targets. Generally speaking,
you want to set the gain control just below the point that you begin
to see speckles of “noise” between surface and the bottom on the
screen.
White line – is a control which places a white/black line at the
displayed sea floor and blanks out 4 pixels just below the line. The
purpose of this is to help the user detect targets, such as fish, which
are very close to the sea floor and whose echoes tend to merge with
those of the sea floor itself.
Expansion window (zoom level) – can be selected in eight steps,
ranging from 1 to 50 meters, or converted to feet or fathoms (refer to
Setup for units, section 8.3). This function allows you to take a closer
look at a particular section of the water underneath your boat. You
can expand the view near the bottom (Bottom expansion) or near the
Variable Range Marker (VRM expansion).
TVG – Time Varying Gain – is a control that allows the EQ33-2 to
make corrections for most of the losses and absorption that occurs as
sound energy passes through sea water. There are three settings to
choose from, Normal, Special and OFF.
The setting “Normal (20 log R) is for general fish finding at depths
down to 50m (150’) and it will also give a uniform bottom echo presentation at shallow, mid and deep water.
The setting “Special (40 log R) will adjust the TVG to show the same
Chapter 5-8
EQ33-2 Echosounder operation
echo strength for a given size fish at varying depths.
The OFF position is used for net sounders. In OFF position the TVG
is inactive which means that the sounder operates with a fixed gain
between each transmitter pulse. Auto range is switched to manual.
Ping to ping filter – can be set to either on or off. With the filter
“off”, then each received echo will be reflected on the screen.
Whereas with the filter “ON”, the system will compare every two
echoes received and only reflect on the screen what is received from
both echoes, which will give a more uncluttered recording.
Signal threshold – can be set to ON to eliminate the appearance
of unwanted noise. The threshold level is automatic and the feature
should be used with caution, as it may eliminate small fish and small
unidentified objects on the screen.
Color threshold – the color threshold function allows the “weaker”
targets and noise which may be shown on the display screen to be
eliminated from the display. These targets are usually shown in the
weaker target colors such as blues and greens. The Color threshold allows you to choose not to display the blues, or the blues and
greens, etc. Doing this will leave only the stronger targets on the
display screen.
Depth grid - enables a more precise reading of depth and target relations across the screen.
Transmit pulse length – can be set OFF to observe noise in the
water (Auto range will switch to manual mode). Set to AUTO, the
optimum setting will be applied according to the water depth. Or it
can be set manually, if a specific pulse length is required:
SHORT
less than 10m deep water
MEDIUM
between 10 and 50 m deep water
LONG
more than 50m deep water
) A long pulse will reach deeper but give less resolution.
Transmit power – should normally be left on AUTOmatic.
The modes available are: AUTO, 600W, 100W, 10W and OFF.
Scroll synchronization – the screen can be updated on the basis of
time or distance (when data from last ping appears on the display).
EQ33-2 Echosounder operation
Chapter 5-9
Scroll speed – is the ping rate and movement of the presentation of
echoes on the screen, moving from right to left. It is adjustable (Low,
Medium, High, Max, Freeze), to allow the user to show a longer
“history” on the display screen, if desired.

This graphical engine monitoring system is available for engines
outputting data via NMEA2000® or an appropriate interface device
supporting NMEA2000®. Depending on the engine system and
interface, some data may not be transmitted on the databus. If not
readily available, please enquire at your local Simrad dealer.
The EQ33-2 is capable of receiving and presenting various engine
data. The menu points 4, 5 and 6 are a second set of displays, which
only will be visible if the system detected more than two engines on
board.
For dual engines, the system provides ‘dual bar analog instruments’
to give a precise overview of the rpm synchronization and to make
direct comparison of data between the two engines.
The engine monitoring system provides analog graphical gauges and
digital (numerical readings) data for up to four engines - see display
examples further on in this chapter.
General settings
SimNet will auto detect the engines at start-up and will automatically set up the parameters in default mode. Before using the engine monitor system, you need to edit the setup and prepare for the
read-out. The top line identifies the engine/battery, the default is
ENGINE 1 to 4 or BATTERY 1 to 4. Insert the correct name for the

8.4 Interface setup
EQ33-2 has a connector for SimNet control or NMEA2000 plus one
NMEA in/out port.
Plug-and-play: SimNet offers easy and uncomplicated interfacing
with a unique cable and plug solution and automatic system setup.
SimNet is the optimum solution for integrating SimNet products and
other products with NMEA 2000.
Group selection or stand-alone: Main products, e.g. MultiRadar,
Chartplotter and Autopilot will automatically select the optimum
sources for position, heading, depth, speed etc. for all other SimNet
products connected. This means that if two Chartplotters are connected, they will both use position data from the same GPS and
heading from the same compass. If you wish to use the built-in GPS,
also on the Chartplotter, which automatically was set to operate
with an external position, you can change the Group selection from
SIMRAD to STAND-ALONE.
Multi source: If a main product recognizes e.g. two heading devices
it will automatically select a gyro compass before a fluxgate compass, and DGPS before GPS.
NMEA 0183 input: If there is no data available from the SimNet
bus for e.g. heading, position or depth, the system will automatically
look for data via the NMEA 0183 port.
The next pages show examples of interface settings, which are
divided into the following groups:

SimNet error frame counter - if the figure is not 0 it could be due
to a number of things and not necessarily that there is a system error.
However, if the counter is active and the number is rapidly increasing, then the system has detected a fault.
For instance, if the SimNet cable is pulled, the counter will be activated and once the cable is back in place, the counter will stop, but
will stay at the figure it has reached. So therefore, a figure other than
0 does not necessarily mean that something is wrong, only if the
figure continues to increase.

EQ33-2 Principles of operation
Chapter 9-1
9.1 Parts of an echosounder
An echosounder is composed of a display screen, processor, and transmitter/
receiver unit which in the case of the EQ33-2 are housed in one unit.
Connected to this unit by a shielded cable is the transducer, which is mounted
horizontally on the bottom of the hull or on the transom.
The display screen presents in graphic and numerical form the information
the processor is receiving and accumulating from the transducer.
The processor is the “brain” of the echosounder. It is sealed inside the unit
which protects it from harm. The processor is composed of highly sophisticated microprocessor, memory and logic circuitry.
The transmitter/receiver (often called the “transceiver”) section of your
echosounder takes it’s commands from the processor. The processor tells the
transceiver to activate the transmitter. The transmitter sends a high voltage
transmit “ping” to the transducer mounted on the hull. At that point the transmitter’s job is done and the receiver takes over (see fig.1 in section 9.2).
The receiver is also connected to the transducer and amplifies the very small
signals received as echoes from fish and the sea floor which arrive at the
transducer (see fig.2 in section 9.2). The receiver is designed to reject other
signals as much as possible and provide enough amplification to see even relatively small targets at long ranges.
The amplified receiver signals are then send to the processor to be shown on
the display screen.
The transducer can be single or multiple ceramic elements in a rugged housing made from reinforced plastic, bronze or stainless steel. The transducer is
attached horizontally to the bottom of the hull. It is essential that the transducer be mounted properly, as echo transmissions are radiated at right angles
from the transducer face. Shielded cables connect the transducer with the
echosounder.
Chapter 9-2
EQ33-2 Principles of operation
9.2 How the echosounder works
When the EQ33-2 is turned on, the processor begins
to send electrical pulses to the transducer. The
ceramic resonator in the transducer has a special
property which enables it to change dimensions
slightly when a varying voltage is applied.
The voltage is thus converted to mechanical vibrations (sound waves) which are then transmitted down
through the water.
See Fig. 1.
Fig. 1 Transmitted ‘ping’
from the transmitter/receiver.
The sound waves move through the water until they
encounter a change in density, such as a fish or the
bottom. This causes the sound waves to ‘echo’ back
up through the water. When the reflected sound
waves (echoes) hit the transducer, the ceramic disk
vibrates at the same frequency. This generates a
varying voltage which goes back up through the
cable to the receiver.
The EQ33-2 processes the signals and presents them
on the display screen.
See Fig. 2.
Fig. 2 The up arrow indicates:
Echo returning to the receiver.
The down arrow indicates:
Transmitted pulse.
EQ33-2 Principles of operation
Chapter 9-3
9.3 Transducer beam width
The transducer mounted to the hull of your vessel serves as both a ‘speaker’
when transmitting, and as a ‘microphone’ when the echosounder is receiving. Similar to the way a flashlight focuses light, most of the sound from your
transducer is focused downwards with a smaller amount going out to the sides.
The amount of focusing of the sound beam is expressed as a ‘beam width’.
Transducer
Approximation of the sound
pattern below the transducer
This angle is the transducer’s
beam width
1/2 maximum intensity
Maximum intensity
Fig. 3 A representation of a transducer beam width.
The center of the sound beam is the most intense, then as you move out
towards the sides of the sound beam there is a point where the intensity of
the sound is half what it was in the center. The distance moved is the ‘beam
width’. See Fig. 3.
Chapter 9-4
EQ33-2 Principles of operation
9.4 Effects of the vessel’s speed
The presentation of fish on the EQ33-2 depends directly on the vessel’s speed,
as well as on the depth of the fish. When the vessel is at rest, the echo traces
will appear stretched and flattened. As the vessel’s speed becomes greater, the
echo traces will become shorter and more arched. The reason for this change
in appearance is that as the vessel speed increases, fewer number of sound
‘pings’ strike each fish. A low vessel speed will provide the most accurate
information of where fish are located.

EQ33-2 Installation and service
10.4.1 Power supply connections
The internal voltage regulator will allow the EQ33-2 to operate normally
within the power supply voltage range from 10 to 32 V DC. The EQ33-2 is
connected to external power (battery) by means of the supplied power/NMEA
cable. Cable length is approximately 2 meters.
After connecting the cable to the power source, push the plug as far as it will
go into the nine pin receptacle marked “PWR” on the rear of the cabinet and
turn the plug’s coupling ring clockwise until it makes a click.
10.4.2 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 EQ33-2 is switched on or it will not protect the equipment as
intended – see fuse rating in section 10.9 Specifications.
10.4.3 Transducer connection
Most transducers are supplied with a 10 meter cable for connection to the
echosounder unit – EQ33-2. Push the female plug, as far as it goes, into the
receptacle marked “ECHO” on the rear of the cabinet and turn the plug’s coupling ring clockwise until it clicks into locked position
) The EQ33-2 must be turned off while connecting/disconnecting the transducer cables.
Recommended transducers
Airmar single element two-frequency 50/200 kHz transducers i.e. B744, P319,
B45, B256, P66 and P52.
10.4.4 Interface connection
The 33 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 via the combined power and
NMEA cable to the receptacle on EQ33-2 marked “PWR” on the rear
of the cabinet.
)
The unit must be turned off while connecting/disconnecting the
interface cable.
EQ33-2 Installation and service
Chapter 10-7
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 10.9 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 EQ33-2 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.
EQ33-2

SimNet
SimNet power and termination
The following simple rules should be observed when installing SimNet:
• SimNet must be powered with 12 VDC and connected to the battery via
circuit breaker and 5 amp fuse.
• Do not connect the SimNet power cable to the same terminals as the
Autopilot Computer, Radar, thruster or other high current products.
• SimNet should normally be terminated in each end, starting with the power
cable with termination in one end and termination plug or wind transducer
(with termination) in the other end.
Chapter 10-8
EQ33-2 Installation and service
10.5 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 EQ33-2 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.

Chapter 10-11
10.5.2 Determining the position for the transducer
The EQ33-2 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 EQ33-2 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
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. Levelling
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 (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.

EQ33-2 Glossary of terms
Appendix A-1
Alarms – can be set to sound a “beep” if the echosounder detects a target
above (shallower than) a minimum alarm depth or below (deeper than) a
maximum alarm depth. The EQ33-2 allows you to set the alarm depths and to
enable or disable both the minimum and maximum depth alarms.
A-scope – a method of displaying the echosounder information. In A-Scope
mode, the echoes are displayed in a “bar-graph” format, with stronger echoes
displayed not only in the color representing their target strength, but also in a
width representing their target strength.
Configuration – the configuration functions of the EQ33-2 allow you to adapt
the system more specifically to your needs. You may set Units of measure
(feet, fathoms, meters, etc.), Menu languages, Scroll speed, etc.
Depths – DK = Depth below keel, DS = Depth below surface, DT = Depth
below transducer.
Echogram background color – is the color shown on the EQ33-2 in the event
no target is present. There are three colors to choose from, white, blue or
black, where black is especially useful during nighttime operation when the
white background could appear too bright.
Echosounder frequency – 50 kHz or 200 kHz can be selected to suit the
task. 200 kHz is for general purpose and offers optimum discrimination and a
narrow transmitter beam. 50 kHz is for searching in a wider area, determining
bottom conditions and going the deepest.
Event marker – allows the user to set a vertical marker on the screen at the
current ping to indicate a school of fish, etc.
Measurement units – the user may select the displayed units to be one of the
following:
m
meters
ft
feet, 1 foot is 0.3048 meter
fm
fathoms, 1 fathom is 1.83 meters
nm
nautical mile, 1 nm is 1852 meters
kn

MENU – the selection of main menus will be shown in the upper part of the
screen. Leaf through the menus by means of the cursor key and the [ENT]
key, or use the numerical keys to activate one of the menus.
NMEA – National Marine Electronics Association. The NMEA is an organization of manufacturers of marine electronics equipment. They have adopted
the NMEA0183 as a standard for communications between various types of
marine electronic equipment.
TFT – Thin-Film Transistor (Active matrix) display.
Transducer – the transducer serves as the acoustic “loudspeaker” and “microphone” to send and receive the signals through the water. They are most
often made from ceramic elements carefully built into a robust housing. The
ceramic elements change shape when a voltage is applied across them (when
the EQ33-2 transmits a signal), and they also generate a voltage when they
encounter sound waves (as when the EQ33-2 is receiving an echo).
XTE – Cross-Track-Error (-Distance), measured magnitude of the position
error perpendicular to the intended track line.
