1 General Information
Note: Please familiarize yourself with the entire manual and transducer installation guide before
attempting installation.
1.1 Introduction
1.2 Front panel
The MD150 is a stand-alone, multidata instrument
which displays depth, speed, temperature, log and
time functions.
The front panel includes a a multi-function LCD and
four-button keypad. The keypad uses both tactile
and audible feedback to indicate when a key is
pressed. All functions are controlled entirely by
these four keys.
Included:
• Owners manual
• MD150 Digital instrument
• MD150 Panel Gasket
• MD150 Dust cover
1.3 Rear panel
The rear panel contains a Fuji 4-pin connector for
connection to the speed transducer and an RCA
phono connector for connection to the depth
transducer. It also contains red and black wires for
connection to the power supply and a blue wire for
NMEA output for interfacing with 150 series
instruments, STANDARD HORIZON GPS
Chartplotters or other NMEA listeners. A green wire
is also provided for an external alarm.

4.3 Wiring Connection
•
Keep electrical and transducer cables away
from alternator or other noise generating
electrical cables. Avoid connecting the
instrument to power circuits that share loads
with ignition, alternators, inverters and radio
transmitters. Electrical power supply
connections should always be as short as
possible.
•
Connect the red wire to the positive supply
via a 1 amp fuse or a 1 amp circuit breaker.
Connect the black wire to the electrical
ground. A 1 amp fuse will provide protection
for up to five 100 series instruments.
Connect the 4 pin Fuji connector to the speed
and temperature transducer cable connector.
Extension cables are available if the
transducer cable is too short.
If you are not using a repeater of you do not
intend to provide NMEA data to another
instrument then insulate the bare end of the
blue wire.
Note: An external switch is necessary to turn
the unit on and off.

supplied with each impeller or transducer.
The MD150 may be used as an individual instrument
or connected with a number of other 150 series
instruments to the 150 series repeater, STANDARD
HORIZON GPS Chartplotters or to other instruments
accepting NMEA 0183 data.
4.5.2 In-Hull Installation
4.5 Impeller/Transducer Installation
Should the user desire to perform an in-hull
installation, perform the following test to determine
its suitability:
Note: It is wise to check the operation of the
speed impeller before installation. To check;
apply power to the instrument, plug in the
impeller, spin the paddlewheel, and check
the instrument for a speed/temperature
reading.
Note: The depth transducer cable may be
extended but depth performance may be
affected. One EX345 Optional Extension
Cable may be used for a maximum length of
45 feet.
4.5.1 Transom and thru-hull mount
Transom mount and thru-hull impellers and
transducers can be used with the MD150. See
section 3 for a list of available impellers and
transducers. Specific installation instructions are
MD150 User Manual
Transducer installation inside a solid fiberglass hull
may degrade performance of depth sounder.
Therefore, this type of installation is not preferred
over thru-hull and transom installations.
1. Fill a thin plastic bag with water and suspend
the transducer in the water.
2. Hold the bag against the hull while the boat is
moored and underway and check the reading
on the instrument. The reading should be
relatively constant.
3. The bag may have to be moved around the
hull to find the best mounting location. The
best location will be close to the center line,
away from lifting strakes.
4. When a suitable location is found, clean the
surface with a solvent/cleaner to remove any
loose dirt or wax. Use a quality epoxy to
attach the transducer to the inside of the hull.
Make sure there are no air bubbles trapped in
the epoxy.

indicates that the calibration values have been lost.
To correct this, check the depth units, alarm values,
keel offset, speed units and the speed calibration.

Page 11
5.13.1 Keel Offset
5.13.3 Speed Calibration
The MD150 will normally display the depth of water
below the face of the transducer. You may introduce
a keel offset to display the depth of water below the
keel. A positive value may be entered to display
the depth of water from the water surface to the
bottom. This is often called waterline offset.
Use the following sequence to adjust the speed
displayed to match that of another craft or the
speed displayed on a GPS receiver.

5.13.2 Transducer Setting
Three values of transducer setting can be selected
(1 to 3). The lower numbers improve the shallow
water performance and may produce reliable readings
to below 3 feet. It is recommended to use the lowest
number possible if shallow water performance is
important. It must also be noted that in situations
where the MD150 is tracking the bottom and
displaying a constant depth but occasionally
displaying “--” or erroneous depths of 3 to 4 feet,
that this generally indicates the transducer setting
is too low and should be increased.

8 Troubleshooting
1. No display:
• Check DC power connections and DC polarity
with voltmeter. Voltage must be between 10.7
and 16.6 volts.
2. No speed reading:
a. Under normal operation, the life of the paddle
wheel is 2 years. Replace if worn. (See
Section 3.2 for replacement part.)
b. Remove speed impeller from thru-hull fitting,
spin paddlewheel manually and check for
reading.
c. Check for fouling on paddle and thru-hull
fitting.
d. Check for break in cable.
3. Low or high speed reading:
a. Check calibration.
b. Inspect for damage to paddlewheel or fouling
of fitting or paddle.
4. Erratic speed reading:
a. Is there clear water flow over paddlewheel?
b. Is paddlewheel aligned fore and aft correctly?
c. Is paddlewheel clean and turning freely?
d. See section 3.2 for replacement parts.
5. Erratic readings when engine is running:
To isolate problem, unplug the impeller. If the problem
goes away, reroute the cable away from the engine.
If problem persists:
a. Add feed-through filter capacitor on the
positive terminal of the ignition coil.
b. Add alternator whine filter to alternator.
c. Replace spark plug with resistive type.
Page 14
6. No, or inaccurate temperature reading:
Remove, inspect and clean transducer if needed.
Measure resistance between pins 1 and 4 on
connector. Transducer is defective if shorted or open.
a.
b.
7.
•
Check calibration.
Check for break in cable.
Speed cable is not long enough.
Use EX345 optional cable. A maximum of two
cable can be connected.
8. No depth reading (- -) at all depths:
a. Check transducer for growth or multiple coats
of paint..
b. Check the transducer cable for cuts and sharp
bends.
c. Substitute the transducer with a known good
transducer hold it over the side of the boat into
the water and see if the instrument functions.
This isolates cause of problem (transducer or
cable.
9. Erratic depth readings (while moored):
• Check transducer for growth or multiple coats
of paint.
10. Erratic depth readings (while underway):
• Cavitation (air) under the face of the transducer.
Review installation and reinstall if necessary.
11. When power is applied display digit
counts up or down:
• See the section on Simulation Mode.
12. Simulation Mode:
• At power up, if all the segments display for 5
seconds then the instrument is in simulation
mode.
