automatically change to display the
bottom in the darkest gray tone on the
lower half of the screen.
This equipment is designed and
constructed to meet the rigorous
demands of the marine environment.
However, no machine can perform its
intended function unless operated and
maintained properly. Please carefully
read and follow the recommended
procedures for operation and
maintenance.
• User-programmable nav data displays
provide analog and digital nav data.
• Alarms: Bottom, Fish (bottom-lock
and normal), Speed, Water
Temperature and Arrival. (Speed and
arrival alarms require appropriate
sensor; water temperature alarm
requires water temperature data.)
We would appreciate hearing from you,
the end-user, about whether we are
achieving our purposes.
• White line feature helps discriminate
fish lying near the bottom.
Thank you for considering and
purchasing FURUNO equipment.

50 kHz
The 50 kHz picture appears on the left;
the 200 kHz picture on the right. This
display is useful for comparing the same
picture with two different transmitting
frequencies.
The sounder uses ultrasonic signals to
detect bottom conditions. The lower the
frequency of the signal, the wider the
detection area. Therefore, the 50 kHz
frequency is useful for general detection
and judging bottom condition.

Advance Speed
The picture advance speed determines
how quickly the vertical scan lines run
across the screen. When choosing a
picture advance speed, keep in mind
that a fast advance speed will expand
the size of the fish school horizontally
on the screen and a slow advance
speed will contract it. Note that the
picture is not refreshed when picture
advancement is stopped. Therefore,
use caution when steering the vessel
under this condition.

4.1 Display Unit
Mounting considerations
See the instructions on the bulkhead or
flush mounting template (supplied).
The display unit can be installed on a
desktop, on the bulkhead or flush
mounted in a panel. When choosing a
location keep the following in mind:
4.2 Thru-hull Mount
Transducer
• Keep the display unit out of direct
sunlight.
• The temperature and humidity should
be moderate and stable.
• Locate the unit away from exhaust
pipes and vents.
• The mounting location should be well
ventilated.
• Mount the unit where shock and
vibration are minimal.
• For maintenance and checking
purposes, leave sufficient space at
the sides and rear of the unit and
leave slack in cables.
• A magnetic compass will be affected if
the display unit is placed too close to
it. Observe the following compass
safe distances to prevent disturbance
to the magnetic compass:
Standard compass: 0.4 meters
Steering compass: 0.3 meters
Transducer mounting location
The thru-hull mount transducer
(520-5PSD, 520-5MSD) provides the
best performance of all, since the
transducer protrudes from the hull and
the effect of air bubbles and turbulence
near the hull skin is reduced. When the
boat has a keel, the transducer should
be at least 30 cm away from it. Typical
thru-hull mountings are shown in the
figure on the next page.
The performance of this sounder is
directly related to the mounting location
of the transducer, especially for
high-speed cruising. The installation
should be planned in advance, keeping
the standard cable length (8 m) and the
following factors in mind:
• Air bubbles and turbulence caused by
movement of the boat seriously
degrade the sounding capability of the
transducer. The transducer should,
therefore, be located in a position
where water flow is the smoothest.
Noise from the propellers also
adversely affects performance and
the transducer should not be mounted
nearby. The lifting strakes are
notorious for creating acoustic noise,
and these must be avoided by
keeping the transducer inboard of
them.
Desktop, overhead mounting
1. Fix the bracket to a desktop or the
overhead with tapping screws
(supplied).
2. Loosely screw knobs into the display
unit.
3. Set the display unit to the bracket
and then tighten the knobs.
• The transducer must always remain
24
submerged, even when the boat is
rolling, pitching or up on a plane at
high speed.
Typical thru-hull mount
transducer installations
• A practical choice would be
somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of
the boat’s length from the stern. For
planing hulls, a practical location is
generally rather far astern, so that the
transducer is always in water
regardless of the planing attitude.

Procedure for installing the
thru-hull mount transducer
1. With the boat hauled out of the water,
mark the location chosen for
mounting the transducer on the
bottom of the hull.
2. If the hull is not level within 15° in
any direction, fairing blocks made
out of teak should be used between
the transducer and hull, both inside
and outside, to keep the transducer
face parallel with the water line.
Fabricate the fairing block as shown
below and make the entire surface
as smooth as possible to provide an
undisturbed flow of water around the
transducer. The fairing block should
be smaller than the transducer itself
to provide a channel to divert
turbulent water around the sides of
the transducer rather than over its
face.

Transducer
The transom mount transducer is very
commonly employed, usually on
relatively small I/O or outboard boats.
Do not use this method on an inboard

Construction of fairing block
3. Drill a hole just large enough to pass
the threaded stuffing tube of the
transducer through the hull, making
sure it is drilled vertically.
4. Apply a sufficient amount of high
quality caulking compound to the top
surface of the transducer, around the
threads of the stuffing tube and
inside the mounting hole (and fairing
blocks if used) to ensure watertight
mounting.
5. Mount the transducer and fairing
blocks and tighten the locking nuts.
Be sure that the transducer is
properly oriented and its working
face is parallel to the waterline.
520-5PWD
There are two methods of installation:
flush with hull (for flat hulls) and
projecting from hull (for deep V-hulls).
D
D>50 cm
Flat Hull
Note: Do not over-stress the stuffing
tube and locking nuts through excessive
tightening, since the wood block will
swell when the boat is placed in the
water. It is suggested that the nut be
tightened lightly at installation and
retightened several days after the boat
has been launched.
Deep-V
Hull
520-5PWD mounting locations
Installing the 520-5PWD on a flat hull
A suitable mounting location is at least
50 cm away from the engine and where
the water flow is smooth.
1. Drill four pilot holes in the mounting
location.
2. Attach the transducer to the bracket
with 5 x 20 tapping screws
(supplied).
3. Adjust the transducer position so the
transducer faces right to the bottom.
Transducer preparation
Before putting the boat in water, wipe
the face of the transducer thoroughly
with a detergent liquid soap. This will
lessen the time necessary for the
transducer to have good contact with
the water. Otherwise the time required
for complete “saturation” ill be
lengthened and performance will be
reduced.
26
Note: If necessary, to improve water
flow and minimize air bubbles
staying on the transducer face,
incline the transducer about 5° at the
rear. This may require a certain
amount of experimentation for fine
tuning at high cruising speeds.

Installing the transom mount
transducer on a deep-V hull
This method is employed on deep-V
hulls and provides good performance
because the effects of air bubbles are
minimal. Install the transducer parallel
with water surface; not flush with hull. If
the boat is placed on a trailer care must
be taken not to damage the transducer
when the boat is hauled out of the water
and put on the trailer.
Installing the 525-5PWD
Referring to “Installing the 520-5PWD”
in the left column for mounting of the
bracket and the figure shown on the top
of next page, install the 525-5PWD to
the transom.

7. Apply marine sealant to the threads
of the #6 x 1/2” self-tapping screw to
prevent water from seeping into the
transom. If you have drilled a hole
through the transom, apply marine
sealant to the space around the
cable where it passes through the
transom.
8. Position the two cable clamps and
fasten them in place. If used, 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 though the
bulkhead(s) and other parts of the
boat. To reduce electrical
interference, separate the sensor
cable from other electrical wiring and
“noise” sources. Coil any excess
cable and secure it in place with
zip-ties to prevent damage.

Water temperature/speed sensor
ST-02MSB and ST-02PSB, which are
designed for thru-hull mounting, are
optionally available. Install them as
shown below.
Mounting considerations
Choose a suitable mounting location
considering the following:
• Choose a place free from vibration.
• Choose a mid-boat flat position. The
sensor does not have to be installed
perfectly perpendicular. The sensor
must not be damaged in dry-docking
operation.
• Choose a place apart from equipment
generating heat.
• Choose a place in the forward
direction viewing from the drain hole,
to allow for circulation of cooling
water.
1. Dry-dock the boat.
2. Make a hole of approx. 51 mm
diameter in the mounting location.
3. Unfasten locknut and remove the
sensor section.
4. Apply high-grade sealant to the
flange of the sensor.
5. Pass the sensor casing through the
hole.
6. Face the notch on the sensor toward
boat’s bow and tighten the flange.
7. Set the sensor section to the sensor
casing and tighten the locknut.
8. Launch the boat and check for water
leakage around the sensor.
33
Establishing the ground
Locknut
The ground wire (1.25 sq or more, local
supply) should be as short as possible.
Face "notch"
toward bow.
The signal line ground is isolated from
the chassis ground, however the power
line is not insulated. Therefore, when
connecting eternal equipment having
positive ground, do not ground the
signal line to the chassis. If excessive
noise shows on the screen, the ground
may be inadequate. In this case, attach
a steel plate measuring 20 cm by 30 cm
on the outside of the hull to provide a
ground point. Connect the ground wire
there. Use a “closed” type lug (
) to
make the connection at the display unit.
Do not use an “open” type lug (
).

4.9 Installation Menu
NMEA port setup
(NMEA PORT, NMEA MIX)
The installation menu mainly contains
items which are set at installation.
The POWER port can function as an
input port or input/output port. Change
the setting to “In/In” when connecting
GP-310B/320B and a wind sensor.
1. Turn on the power while pressing the
[MENU/ESC] key. Continue pressing
the [MENU/ESC] key until the
Installation menu appears.
When connecting the GP-310B/320B
and a wind sensor, first turn on “GPS
WAAS” (in the Installation menu) and
then select “In/In” as the NMEA port
setting.

SIMULATION: The simulation mode
provides, without connection of the
transducer, simulated operation of the
equipment, using internally generated
echoes. All controls are operative. The
message “SIM” appears at the top right
corner on the screen when the
simulation mode is active.
In/Out: Input and Output (default
setting)
In/In: Input only (Available with
connection of the GP-310B/320B
and a wind sensor.)
4. Press ◄, choose NMEA MIX, and
then press ► to display the NMEA
MIX options window.
5. Use ▲ or ▼ to choose Off or On.
Choose On to output input data.
1. At the installation menu, press ► to

turn on the power. “SIM” appears at
the top right corner of the display.
5. To turn off the simulation mode,
select Off at step 2.
Off: Outputs the data sentences of
LS-4100 only.
On: Outputs the data sentences of
LS-4100 and sentences which are
input from other equipment.
6. To restore normal operation, turn off
the power and then turn it on again.

BOTTOM LEVEL: If the depth
indication is unstable in automatic
operation, or the bottom echo cannot be
displayed in the darkest gray tone by
adjusting the gain controls in manual
operation, you may adjust the bottom
echo level detection circuit, for both 50
kHz and 200 kHz, to stabilize the
indication. Generally, lower the bottom
level for inner hull installation where the
receive level is too low. If the bottom
level is too low it may be difficult to
discriminate fish from the bottom,
resulting in unstable depth indication.
And if the bottom level is too high the
depth indication may not appear.
GPS WAAS: Chooses how to use the
WAAS signal when connecting with a
WAAS receiver, for example GP-320B.
Note: WAAS is currently in the
developmental phase. During the
developmental phase the reliability and
availability of the WAAS signal cannot
be guaranteed. Therefore, any position
data should be verified against other
sources to confirm reliability.
1. Display the Installation menu.
2. Choose GPS WAAS and then press
► to open the GPS WAAS options
window.
1. At the installation menu, press ▼ to
choose SET BOTTOM LEVEL and
