DANGER: Microwave Radiation Hazard! The microwave energy radiated by a radar antenna is harmful
to humans, especially to one’s eyes. Do NOT look at the scanner from close range. Never look directly into an
open waveguide or into the path of radiation from an enclosed antenna. Make sure personnel are clear of
the scanner when it is powered on. Turn off the radar whenever it is necessary to work on the antenna unit
or on other equipment in the beam of the radar.
DANGER! Radar and other radio frequency radiation can upset cardiac pacemakers. If someone with a
cardiac pacemaker suspects abnormal operation, immediately turn off the equipment and move the person
away from the antenna.
CAUTION! For safety reasons, the radar must be installed above head height and out of range of personnel.

It is important to consider the following information when installing the Radar scanner on the vessel. The
Radar scanner must be mounted where it is:
• Near the vessel's centerline
• Above head height
• Clear of large objects such as the flybridge, large engine stacks, searchlights, horns, masts, etc.
• At least 3 feet (1 m) from a magnetic compass or other scanners
• Away from heat and fumes
• On a stable platform that is capable of securely supporting the scanner under seagoing conditions
• Easily accessible

•
Unobstructed View
Position the Radar scanner forward of large structures and exhaust stacks. Contamination from engine
exhaust on the scanner housing reduces radar performance.
• Antennas for GPS, radio communication, or other equipment should not be located in the radar
beam.
• Use non-metallic extension poles to move the active area of antennas above the radar beam.
Blind Spots, Shadow Areas, and False Echoes: Large structures or stacks may cause blind spots and/or
false echoes.
• Wet sails may also cause shadow areas, so Radar performance may be reduced in the rain.
• If you mount the Radar scanner on a mast, echoes from other targets may be reflected from the mast.
• It is particularly important to avoid shadow areas near the bow.
• In shadow areas beyond the obstruction, there will be a reduction of the beam intensity. There may
be a blind sector if the beam intensity is not sufficient to obtain an echo from an object. This may
occur even at close range. For this reason, the angular width and relative bearing of any shadow area
must be determined at installation.
• Identifying shadow areas and/or false echoes on the control head: For example, adjust the
settings on your control head to view sea clutter. Dark sectors on the Radar display indicate possible
shadowed areas. See your control head operations manual for more information.

Potential Interference
For optimum EMC performance, we recommend that wherever possible:
• Humminbird equipment and cables connected to it are:
– At least 3 feet (1 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals (e.g. VHF
radios, cables and antennas). In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 7 feet
(2 m).
– More than 7 feet (2 m) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed
to spread 20° above and below the radiating element.
• The Radar scanner must be supplied from a separate power source from that used for engine start.
This is important to prevent erratic behavior and data loss which can occur if the engine start does
not have a separate battery or fuse panel.
Mounting Surface
The mounting surface must be flat, stable, and approximately parallel with the boat’s waterline.
• Surface Thickness: If the mounting surface is thin, a doubler should be added. If the mounting
surface is thick, longer bolts must be purchased separately.
• Surface Angle: The Radar beam from the Radar scanner is approximately 20° wide in the vertical
direction to give good target detection even when your vessel pitches and rolls.

le
Planing hull vessels, and some displacement hull vessels, adopt a higher bow angle when the vessel
is at cruising speed. This may raise the Radar’s main radiation angle, and can cause poor detection
of nearby targets. It may be necessary to compensate for the bow rise to ensure optimum target
detection. This can be achieved by fitting a wedge or washers between the mounting platform and
the base of the Radar scanner, so that the Radar beam remains parallel to the water line when the
vessel's bow rises at cruising speed.

Mounting Base
The Radar scanner can be installed directly to a roof or other flat surface. The mounting location must be
secure enough to support the Radar scanner under seagoing conditions. You can also use a mounting
bracket (separate purchase required). Be certain to keep the water drain tube clear, which is located at the
bottom of the scanner unit.
NOTE: If the mounting bracket or surface has a curvature of more than 5/64" (2 mm), use spacers with the
mounting bolts to prevent stress on the scanner housing.

Sailing Vessels
Additional considerations apply when installing the Radar scanner on a sailing vessel. A separate purchase
mast mounting bracket is highly recommended.
Review the following important mounting requirements:
• When mounting the Radar scanner onto the mast, check that the unit is not fouled by the sails,
especially when tacking.
• Depending on the type of sailing vessel and the design of the sailplan, a Radar scanner guard
(separate purchase required) should be attached to the mast if the sails or rigging contact either the
Radar scanner unit or the mounting bracket (separate purchase required). See the illustration
Example of a Radar Guard Installation.
WARNING! Without a proper Radar guard, serious damage can result to the Radar mounting
bracket and the Radar scanner itself. In extreme cases, such damage could result in the Radar scanner
unit being pulled off the mast. Therefore, it is recommended that a Radar scanner guard should be
mounted additionally and separately to the Radar scanner mounting bracket.
• To prevent the risk of the Radar scanner falling after it has been damaged, the security lanyard
supplied with the mast bracket (separate purchase required) must be secured properly to the mast
and to the Radar scanner, according to the instructions provided with the bracket.
If a safety lanyard is not supplied with the mounting bracket, contact your local dealer for appropriate
parts. Do NOT attach other equipment to either the Radar scanner or the bracket.
• Maintenance: Humminbird strongly recommends that you check the condition and security of the
bracket mounting feet, the security lanyard(s), the Radar scanner guard, and the Radar scanner
itself, on a yearly basis (or more frequently depending on environmental applications). Any fittings
should be replaced as appropriate.
