Installation
The installation includes 6 major steps:
Read the installation and operation manual.
Plan where to install the WSI-box, transducers and instruments.
Run the cables.
Install the WSI-box, transducers and instruments.
Learn the functions and calibrate your system.
Before you begin drilling ... think about how you can make the installation as neat
and simple as your boat will allow. Plan where to position the transducers, Server
and instruments. Think about leaving space for additional instruments in the future.
•
−

A few ”do not” you should consider:
Do not cut the cables too short. Allow extra cable length at the Server so it
can be disconnected for inspection without having to disconnect all
attached cables.
Do not place sealant behind the display. The instrument gasket eliminates
the need for sealant.
Do not run cables in the bilge, where water can appear.
Do not run cables close to fluorescent light sources, engine or radio
transmitting equipment to avoid electrical disturbances.
Do not rush, take your time. A neat installation is easy to do.
•
The following material is needed:
Wire cutters and strippers.
Small and large Philips and small flat head screw driver.
Hole saw for the instrument clearance of 63 mm (2½").
Hole saw for the transducer of 51 mm.
2.8mm drill for the WSI-box mounting screws
5 mm (1/4") drill for the mounting holes.
Plastic cable ties
If you are doubtful about the installation, obtain the services of an experienced
technician.

Note! The two nuts must just be tighten by hand only
•
•
•
Run the Nexus Network cable from the WSIbox to the instrument.
If you want to cut the Nexus Network cable to
length, disconnect 4-pole jack plug and cut
the cable. Peel off about 35 mm (1.4") of the
cable insulation. Remove about 6 mm (1/4")
from the 3 isolated wires (the 4th wire is an
earth / screen). Attach the 4 cable protectors
to the wires using a pair of flat pliers.
Connect the 4 cable protectors to the 4-pole
jack plug as shown. Apply silicon paste on all
locations as shown.
Note: Must be done to avoid corrosion.

2.2 Installing the WSI-box
Remove the WSI-box cover from the base plate by removing the
screw. Drill the 3 screw holes using a 2.8 mm (0.11") drill. Mount
the WSI-box using the 3 mounting screws.
Apply silicon paste on the screw terminal. Connect the 8 m Nexus
Network cable supplied with cable protectors to the WSI-box on
pins 13, 14, 15, and 16. Match the colour codes for each wire.
2.3
Installing the Wind Transducer
2.3.1 IMPORTANT Installation information!
BEFORE placing the wind transducer on the mast, a pairing
procedure must be done!
2.3.2 Location
The transducer should be mounted on a horizontal surface in the mast head. If the
masthead is not horizontal a shim has to be added. A 15 shim for Seldén masts is
available (art.no 67400-15).
2.3.3 Mounting in the mast head
The transducer permits any type of horizontal mounting angle.
Mount the unit by directing the pipe (1) down and backwards in the bracket (2). Secure
the nut (3) towards the attachment BY HAND (tools can be needed when demounting).
Attach the security clamp (4) behind the nut.

Installing the Log and depth transducers
2.4.1 Correct location of transducer
Generally the transducers should be placed as far forward as possible along the waterline length
and close to the centreline.
It is important that the transducers are always in the water, within the whole speed range of
the boat. Please note that the actual waterline length of fast power boats shortens considerably at
high speeds. Therefore the transducer should be placed at 25-35% along the true waterline from
the bow, when at full speed
Example:
11
English
Start pack 1
Sailboats with a fin keel must have the transducer located at least 25 cm but not more than 75 cm
in front of the keel. It should be placed no more than 10 cm off the centreline.
On sailboats with a pronounced “V” in the hull, such as full-keel yachts, it might be favourable to
angle the transducer slightly so that it aims at the bow, rather than directly parallel to the
centreline.
This will help balanced the passing waterflow measurement from one tack to another.
Avoid placing the transducer near the edge of sharp hull chines. Transverse waterflow in these
areas can affect the accuracy of measurements.
If you have a questions about the location of the through-hull, contact your builder, yacht
dealer, or other owners of similar boats for advice. Always remember to allow for
accessibility from the inside of the yacht when determining the final location.

2.4.2 Installing the through hull fittings
3
Installation
Cored fiberglass hull—Follow separate instructions on page 3.
Hole Drilling
Warning: Always wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
1.
Drill a 3 mm or 1/8" pilot hole from inside the hull. If there is a rib, strut or other hull
irregularity near the selected mounting location, drill from the outside.
2.
Using the appropriate size hole saw, cut the hole from outside the hull. Flush
housing—Use a countersink tool to create a “seat” in the hull.
3.
Sand and clean the area around the hole, inside and outside, to ensure that the
sealant will adhere properly to the hull. If there is any petroleum residue inside the
hull, remove it with either mild household detergent or a weak solvent (alcohol)
before sanding.
Metal hull—Remove all burrs with a file and sandpaper.
3.1
Bedding
Apply a 2mm (1/16") thick layer of marine sealant around the lip of the housing that
contacts the hull and up the sidewall of the housing. The sealant must extend 6mm
(1/4") higher than the combined thickness of the hull, washer(s), and hull nut (see
Figure 2). This will ensure there is sealant in the threads to seal the hull and to hold the
hull nut securely in place.
3.2
Installing
Caution: Never pull, carry, or hold the sensor by the cable as this may sever internal
connections.
1.
From outside the hull, push the housing into the mounting hole using a twisting
motion to squeeze out excess sealant (see Figure 2). Align the arrow on the lip of
the housing to point forward toward the bow. If the sensor is not installed on the
centerline, angle the housing slightly toward the centerline to align it with the water
flow.
2.
From inside the hull, slide the washer onto the housing. Aluminum hull less than
6mm (1/4") thick—Use an additional rubber, fiberglass, or plastic washer. Never
use bronze since electrolytic corrosion will occur. Never use wood since it will
swell, possibly fracturing the plastic housing.
3.
Screw the hull nut in place being sure the notch on the upper rim of the housing
and the corresponding arrow on the lip are still positioned forward toward the bow.
(If your plastic housing has wrenching flats, do not clamp tightly, possibly causing
the housing to fracture.) Hand-tighten only. Do not over tighten. Wood hull—
Allow for the wood to swell.

English
Start pack 1
4.
Remove any excess sealant on the outside of the hull to ensure smooth water flow
over the paddlewheel. Warning: The O-rings must be intact and well lubricated to
make a watertight seal.
5.
After the sealant cures, inspect the O-rings (replace if necessary) and lubricate
them with the silicone lubricant supplied (see Figure 3).
6.
Inspect the O-rings on the paddlewheel insert (replace if necessary) and lubricate
them with the silicone lubricant supplied.
7.
Slide the sensor into the housing with the arrow on the top pointing forward
toward the bow.
8.
Screw the plastic cap nut in place and hand-tighten only. Do not over tighten.
Warning: Always attach the safety wire to prevent the insert from backing out in
the unlikely event that the cap nut fails or is screwed on incorrectly.
9.
Attach the safety wire to one eye in the hull nut. Thread the short emergency plug
onto the wire. Lead the wire in a counterclockwise direction and thread it through
one eye in the cap nut. Thread the wire through the eye a second time. Then lead
the wire through the pull ring and the second eye in the cap nut. Twist the wire
securely to itself.
10. Route the cable to the WSI-box being careful not to tear the cable jacket when
passing it through the bulkhead(s) and other parts of the boat. To reduce electrical
14
Start pack 1
English
interference, separate the sensor cable from other electrical wiring and the engine.
Coil any excess cable and secure it in place with zip-ties to prevent damage.
11. Connect the sensor to the WSI-box according to chapter Fel! Hittar inte
referenskälla..
3.3
Checking for Leaks
Warning: Never install a thru-hull sensor and leave the boat in the water unchecked for
several days.
When the boat is placed in the water, immediately check around the thru-hull sensor
for leaks. Note that very small leaks may not be readily observed. It is best not to leave
the boat in the water for more than 3 hours before checking it again. If there is a small
leak, there may be considerable bilge water accumulation after 24 hour. If a leak is
observed, repeat “Bedding” and “Installing” on page 2 immediately.
3.4
Installation in a Cored Fiberglass Hull
The core (wood or foam) must be cut and sealed carefully. The core must be protected
from water seepage, and the hull must be reinforced to prevent it from crushing under
the hull nut allowing the housing to become loose. Warning: Always wear safety
goggles and a dust mask.
1.
Drill a 3mm or 1/8" pilot hole from inside the hull. If there is a rib, strut, or other hull
irregularity near the selected mounting location, drill from the outside. (If the hole is
drilled in the wrong location, drill a second hole in a better location. Apply masking
tape to the outside of the hull over the incorrect hole and fill it with epoxy.)
2.
Using the 51mm or 2" hole saw, cut the hole from outside the hull through the outer
skin only (see Figure 4).
3.
From inside the hull, use the 60mm or 2-3/8" hole saw to cut through the inner skin
and most of the core. The core material can be very soft. Apply only light pressure
to the hole saw after cutting through the inner skin to avoid accidentally cutting the
outer skin.
15
English
Start pack 1
4.
Remove the plug of core material so the inside of the outer skin and the inner core
of the hull are fully exposed. Sand and clean the inner skin, core, and the outer
skin around the hole. Caution: Completely seal the hull to prevent water seepage
into the core.
5.
If you are skilled with fiberglass, saturate a layer of fiberglass cloth with a suitable
resin and lay it inside the hole to seal and strengthen the core. Add layers until the
hole is the correct diameter. Alternatively, a hollow or solid cylinder of the correct
diameter can be coated with wax and taped in place. Fill the gap between the
cylinder and hull with casting epoxy. After the epoxy has set, remove the cylinder.
6.
Sand and clean the area around the hole, inside and outside, to ensure that the
sealant will adhere properly to the hull. If there is any petroleum residue inside the
hull, remove it with either mild household detergent or a weak solvent (alcohol)
before sanding.
7.
Proceed with “Bedding” and “Installing” on page 2.

Pairing procedure of wind transducer
When all instruments have been installed, a pairing procedure between the wireless
wind transducer and the WSI unit must be made to introduce it to your specific NX
network system. This is how you do it:
a.
Make sure the wind transducer is fully charged!
If the wind transducer has been stored in a dark place for a long time,
you must first charge it by exposing the solar cell for sun light some
hours before use.
b.
Pairing!
Hold the wind transducer within 2m from the Wireless WSI unit, and
then press the INIT button (through the hole in the bottom of the
battery lid) by use of the “pin”.
The built in LED will flash 2 times then lit for 2s, before it is turned off.
Your Nexus system is now ready for use.
18

English
Winter storage and re-initialization
The Wind transducer can be set in “winter sleep mode” by pressing the same INIT
button for 5s.
The wind transducer can then be re-initialised again to the same, or to any other
Nexus network as described above.
Maintenance!
If you have been using the Wireless wind for several seasons, you may need to
change the rechargeable cells.
Use Nexus original NiMh cells.
IMPORTANT! Do not change the rechargeable cell in strong light! If needed, cover
the solar cell with your hand while changing cells!
Open the battery lid and remove the old cell from the connector, install the new
cells. Return the used Cells to waste collection!
