WARNING: Always wear safety goggles and a dust
mask when installing to avoid personal injury.
CAUTION: Never pull, carry, or hold the transducer by
the cable as this may sever internal connections.
CAUTION: Do not strike the transducer to release it.
When mounted on the bracket, remove the transducer
by removing the locking pin and hinge pin.
CAUTION: Never use solvents. Cleaners, fuel,
sealants, paint, and other products may contain strong
solvents, such as acetone, which attack many
plastics, greatly reducing their strength.
IMPORTANT: Please read the instructions completely
before proceeding with the installation. These
instructions supersede any other instructions in your
instrument manual if they differ.

Mounting Location
General Guidelines
CAUTION: Do not mount the transducer in an area of turbulence
or bubbles: near water intake or discharge openings; behind
strakes, struts, fittings, or hull irregularities.
CAUTION: Avoid mounting the transducer where the boat may be
supported during trailering, launching, hauling, or storage.
• For best performance, the transducer must be in contact with aeration-free and turbulence-free water. To identify an area of smooth
water, observe the flow off the transom while the boat is underway.
• Allow headroom space above the bracket for it to release and
rotate the transducer upward.
• Mounting on the side of the transom where the propeller blades
are moving downward is preferred (see Figure 1).
• Mount the transducer as close to the centerline (keel) of the
boat as possible to ensure the transducer’s face remains in the
water when the boat is turning. However, keep in mind that it
should be a minimum of 15 cm (6") beyond the swing radius of
the propeller, so the water passing over the transducer does not
cause a flow disturbance to the propeller.

Installation
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
Assembling the Transducer & Bracket
1. Thread the cable through the large hole in the transducer
support (see Figure 3).
2. Fasten the support to the transducer using the three sockethead-cap screws and washers supplied. Tighten the screws
with the 3/16" Allen wrench supplied.
3. Attach a safety ring to one end of each pin (see Figure 4).
4. While holding the transducer assembly against the bracket, insert
a pin through the upper hole in the bracket and the support.
Slide the spacer onto the pin and push it through the remaining
hole in the support and the bracket. Attach a second safety ring.
This pin will function as a hinge when the transducer is released.
5. Slide a washer onto the remaining pin. Push it through the lower
hole in the bracket, slide it along the channel in the support, and
through the second hole in the bracket. Slide the second washer
onto the free end of the pin and attach the second safety ring.
This will function as the locking pin to hold the transducer in the
operational position when underway.
For the best performance, the transducer beam must be aimed
straight at the bottom (see Figure 5). Since the transom of most
boats is angled, the bracket must compensate for it. Measure the
transom angle of the boat with an angle finder.
Standard transom (12° transom angle)—The bracket is
designed for a standard 12° transom angle. No shim is needed for
this installation. If your boat is capable of speeds above 20kn
(28MPH), install the bracket with one 3° shim, taper down. This
will ensure that the transducer is in contact with the water at high
speeds.
Shims—The bracket is supplied with three shims; each one has a
3° angle. Up to three shims can be combined for a maximum of 9°.
The shims are designed to mate together. Two bosses on the face fit
into recesses in the back of another shim or the holes in the bracket.
• Transom angles greater than 12°—Add the appropriate number of shims with the taper up to the 12° bracket angle.
• Transom angles less than 12°—To reduce the bracket’s 12°
angle, group the appropriate number of shims with the taper
down.
If you are unsure about using the shim(s), experiment with the
them by following the instructions “Mounting & Adjusting the
Bracket.”
Hole Drilling
1. At the selected mounting location, position the assembly so the
transducer projects 3mm (1/8") below the bottom edge of the
transom (see Figure 1). Be sure any shim(s) is in place. (You
may want to tape the shim(s) to the bracket temporarily.) With
the transducer in the operational position, mark the bottom
corners of the bracket.
2. Remove the transducer assembly from the bracket by removing
the locking pin and the hinge pin (see Figure 4). Hold the
bracket with any shim(s) in place against the transom at the
marked location. Draw an “X” at 12mm (1/2") from the top and
the bottom of each slot (see Figure 6).
3. Using a 5mm, #4, or 7/32" drill bit, drill the four holes.
Fiberglass hull—Minimize surface cracking by running the drill in
reverse until the gelcoat is penetrated.

Mounting & Adjusting the Bracket
CAUTION: Do not position the transducer deeper in the water
than necessary to avoid increasing drag, spray, and water noise
and reducing boat speed.
CAUTION: The stainless steel bracket must be isolated from a
metal hull to prevent electrolytic corrosion. If no shim is being
used, place non-metal insulating washers between the bracket
and the metal hull.
1. Apply marine sealant to the threads of four of the hex-washerhead screws to prevent water seepage into the transom. Being
sure any shim(s) is in place, screw the bracket to the hull using
a socket wrench (see Figure 4). Do not tighten the screws
completely at this time.
2. Reinstall the transducer. While holding the transducer assembly
against the bracket, insert the hinge pin through the upper hole
in the bracket and the support. Slide the spacer onto the pin
and push it through the remaining hole in the support and the
bracket. Reattach the safety ring.
3. Slide a washer onto the locking pin. Push it through the lower
hole in the bracket, slide it along the channel in the support, and
through the second hole in the bracket. Slide the second
washer onto the free end of the pin and reattach the safety ring.
4. With the transducer in the operational position, Use a straight edge
to sight the underside of the transducer relative to the underside of
the hull (see Figure 5). The trailing edge of the transducer should
be 1–6mm (1/16 –1/4") below the leading edge.

5. Using the vertical adjustment space in the bracket slots, slide the
assembly up or down until the bottom inside corner of the
transducer projections 0–3mm (0–1/8") below the bottom of the
hull (see Figure 1). When you are satisfied with the position of the
transducer, tighten the four bracket screws. For clear access to
the screws, remove the transducer assembly from the bracket
(see Figure 4). When reattaching, be sure to include the spacer.
Testing on the Water
1. Test the transducer at 200kHz with the engine off.
2. Become familiar with your echosounder’s performance at a
speed of 4kn (5 MPH).
3. Gradually increase the boat speed and observe the gradual
decline of performance due to turbulent water flowing over the
transducer’s active surface.
NOTE: As the speed increases the performance at 50kHz will
deteriorate more rapidly because more acoustic noise is
generated at low frequencies.
4. If the decline in performance is sudden (not gradual), identify
the boat speed at which the onset occurred. Return the boat to
this speed, then gradually increase speed while making
moderate turns in both directions.
5. If the performance improves while turning to the side on which the
transducer is installed, it’s position probably needs adjustment.
The transducer is probably in turbulent or aerated water.
To improve performance, try the following, one at a time, in the
order given.
A. Increase the transducer’s angle in the water. Review “Shims”
and see Figure 5.
B. Move the transducer deeper into the water in increments of
3mm (1/8") (see Figure 1).
C. Move the transducer closer to the centerline of the boat.
Fill unused screw holes with marine sealant.

1. Prevent the bracket from moving out of position with the
remaining hex-washer-head screw. Drill the hole for the
stabilizing screw through the center hole of the bracket, any
shim(s), and the hull (see Figure 6).

2. Apply sealant to the threads of the remaining screw to prevent
water seeping into the transom.
3. Fasten the stabilizing screw into place with a socket wrench.
For clear access to the screw, remove the transducer assembly
from the bracket (see Figure 4). When reattaching the
transducer, be sure to include the spacer.

Cable Routing
Route the cable over the transom for a detachable installation. For
permanent mounting, route the cable through a drain hole or
through a new hole drilled in the transom above the waterline.
30cm (12")
CAUTION: Do not remove the connector to ease cable routing. If
the cable must be cut and spliced, use Airmar’s splash-proof
Junction Box No. 33-035 and follow the instructions provided.
Removing the waterproof connector or cutting the cable, except
when using a water-tight junction box, will void the sensor warranty.
1. If a hole must be drilled through the transom, choose a location
well above the waterline (see Figure 7). Check for obstructions
such as trim tabs, pumps, or wiring inside the hull. Mark the
location with a pencil. Drill the hole using the appropriate size bit
to accommodate the connector.
Fiberglass hull—Minimize surface cracking by running the drill in
reverse until the gelcoat is penetrated.
2. Route the cable over or through the transom.
3. On the outside of the hull, secure the cable against the transom
using the cable clamps. Position one cable clamp 30cm (12")
above the bracket. Mark the mounting hole with a pencil.
4. Position the second cable clamp halfway between the first
clamp and the cable hole. Mark this mounting hole.
5. If a hole has been drilled through the transom, open the large
slot in the transom cable cover. Position the cover over the
cable where it enters the hull. Mark the two mounting holes.
6. At each of the marked locations, use a 3mm or 1/8" bit to drill a
hole 10mm (3/8") deep. To prevent drilling too deeply, wrap
masking tape around the bit 10mm (3/8") from the point.
7. Apply marine sealant to the threads of the #6 x 1/2" self-tapping
screw to prevent water from seeping into the transom. Position
the two cable clamps over the cable and fasten them in place.
8. If you have drilled a hole through the transom, apply marine
sealant to the space around the cable where it passes through the
transom. Push the cable cover over the cable and screw it in place.
9. Route the cable to the instrument being careful not to tear the
cable jacket when passing it through the bulkhead(s) and other
parts of the boat. Use grommets to prevent chafing. To reduce
electrical interference, separate the transducer cable from other
electrical wiring and the engine(s). Coil any excess cable and
secure it in place with cable ties to prevent damage.
10.Refer to your echosounder owner’s manual to connect the
transducer to the instrument.
Checking for Leaks
WARNING: Do not leave the boat in the water unchecked for
several days. When the boat is placed in the water, immediately
check for leaks around the screws and any other holes drilled in
the hull. Note that very small leaks may not be readily observed.

Maintenance
Anti-fouling Paint
CAUTION: Do not paint the exposed temperature button. Doing
so will slow the sensor’s response time.
Aquatic growth can accumulate rapidly on the transducer’s
surface reducing performance within weeks. Surfaces exposed to
salt water that do not interlock must be coated with anti-fouling
paint. Use water-based anti-fouling paint only. Never use ketonebased paint, since ketones can attack many types of plastic
possibly damaging the transducer. Repaint every 6 months or at
the beginning of each boating season.
Cleaning
CAUTION: Do not use a lubricant on the bracket; grit will stick to it
increasing friction and wear.
Clean the sensor with a Scotch-Brite® scour pad and mild
household detergent taking care to avoid making scratches. If the
fouling is severe, lightly wet sand with fine grade wet/dry paper.
