to Section 3.3 for more details.
2.2 Depth Alarms
The IS12 Combi features an audible alarm function that can be
set to alert if the water depth falls below or above a specified
value. The shallow alarm will sound if the water depth falls
below a specified amount, to warn if the boat is about to run
aground and the deep alarm will sound if the water depth
goes above a specified amount.
NOTE
This function can also be used as a navigation tool when navigating using depth contours - by setting the shallow and depth
alarms below and above the required contour depth, the alarm
will sound if the boat strays off the contour.

3.3 Depth Offset
As a default, the Depth Sounder displays the water depth
between the transducer and the sea bed.
However, for boats such as sailing yachts with a keel, it is more
useful for the display to show the available water below the
keel, which is sometimes as much as 2m below the transducer.
In other circumstances it may be more important to show the
waterline depth, that is the total depth of water from the bottom to the surface.
The IS12 Depth Sounder allows a keel or waterline offset to be
entered, so that the displayed depth will more accurately
reflect the depth of water available beneath the boat.

The first option is calibration by Percentage Correction (Section
3.5.1), which can be performed at the dockside or at sea. The
second is calibration by “measured mile” (Section 3.5.2), which
must be performed at sea. Either one of these can be used to
calibrate the speed log.

This procedure automatically calibrates the speed sensor by
measuring the average time to cover a known distance and
comparing this with the time it should have taken to cover this
distance at the measured boat speed (Fig 3.9) -
Measured Boat Speed is compared
to the Calculated Boat Speed over
a measured distance

4 INSTALLATION
4.1 Instrument Head Installation
All IS12 instrument heads are a standard 110 x 110mm (4.3 x
4.3in) size, and can be mounted either from the front or the rear.
4.1.1 Front Mounting
Fig 4.1 - Front Mounting
65mm (2.5in)
minimum
Front mounting (Fig 4.1) is the standard method of fitting and
is the most straightforward. When mounting the instrument
head it is important to ensure that there is adequate clearance
behind the bulkhead for the rear of the instrument with the
cables inserted - allow at least 35mm (1.4 in) clearance (Fig 4.2).
Additionally, the instrument should not be fitted to a surface
that has a curve greater than 1mm (1⁄25 in) across the mounting
area. If fixing to an uneven surface, care should be taken not
to overtighten the screws. When choosing a location, consideration should be given to the water integrity of the gasket seal if
the surface is not flat. IS12 is designed to be weatherproof, but
the rear of the instrument case with its electrical connections
should be protected from moisture as far as possible.
Tools required for installation -
Fig 4.2 - Clearance Required
Behind Bulkhead
-Drill
- 85mm (3.4in) hole saw
- 2.5mm (0.09in) drill bit
- Countersinking bit
Using the self adhesive template supplied, drill the central
aperture for the instrument case using the hole saw, then the
four fixing holes as indicated on the template. If the instruments are to be fixed to a GRP bulkhead, the fixing holes
should be countersunk after drilling, to stop the screws splitting the gelcoat.
30
E04052
Instruction Manual
The instrument is 110mm (4.33 in) square, but a distance of at
least 6mm (0.25 in) should be allowed between adjacent units
for the protective instrument cover supplied.
NOTE
Long term exposure to direct sunlight can damage the liquid
crystal display if left unprotected when not in use - always use
the instrument cover supplied.
The easiest way to fit the keypad and the bezel to the installed
instrument head is to locate the keypad in the keyholes in the
bezel and then offer this up to the instrument head, angling the
bezel back slightly to prevent the keypad falling out. The bezel
should click into place when located correctly (Fig 4.3) -
Fig 4.3 - Fitting Keypad and Bezel
To remove the bezel, simply lift the top edge of the bezel
slightly to disengage the locking clips and pull away from the
instrument head (Fig 4.4) -
Fig 4.4 - Removing Bezel
E04052

IS12 Combi
4.1.2 Rear Mounting
When the instrument is rear mounted, only the display can be
seen - the main body of the instrument, including the keypad is
hidden behind the panel. This is a more elegant method of
installation, but does require precise cutting of the apertures into
the bulkhead or dashboard. Therefore, it is recommended that
installation is done by a professional marine installer.
The instrument can be fixed to the panel using either the self
tapping screws supplied (if the panel is thick enough), or using
2mm studs fixed to the rear of the panel which align with the
four fixing holes (Fig 4.5).
Tools required for installation - Drill
- 5mm (0.2in) drill bit
- Fretsaw
- A fine toothed file.
To assist in cutting a precise aperture for the display, a self
adhesive template is supplied with the unit (Fig 4.6) -
Fig 4.5 - Rear Mounting
Cut on
waste side
of template
Fig 4.6 - Cutting Aperture
Fix the template in the correct position and drill four 5mm
holes on the waste side of the four corners of the aperture.
Starting from one of these holes, carefully cut along the dotted
line around the four edges. To ensure the hole is a good fit, cut
slightly inside the line (on the waste side) and then use the file
to smooth the edges until the display fits precisely.
NOTE
32
Because the keypad is not accessible with this method of mounting, the Remote Control unit (see Section 2.11) will be required
to enable control of instrument functions.
Instruction Manual
4.2 Transducer Installation
The IS12 Combi is supplied with 50mm (2in) diameter plastic
speed and depth sensors, or transducers. The speed unit
includes an Aortic Sea Valve, which allows the transducer to be
removed for cleaning without seawater flooding the bilges
through the hull fitting.
WARNING
Plastic transducers are suitable for GRP, ferrous, ferrocement or
wooden ply hulled boats. They are not suitable for boats with
a solid, planked wooden hull as swelling can damage the transducers. For this application, a bronze transducer will be necessary - contact your local Simrad agent for more details.
WARNING
As transducer installation involves drilling a hole in the bottom
of the boat, please read these installation instructions thoroughly before attempting installation. If in doubt, employ a qualified marine electronics engineer to install the transducer.
NOTE
Simrad cannot accept any responsibility for the cost of hauling the boat out of the water in the event of the transducer not
functioning - it is recommended that the transducer is tested by
connecting it to the powered instrument and spinning the paddlewheel before attempting permanent installation.
4.2.1 Selecting a Suitable Location
For optimum performance, the transducers must be located in
positions that are clear from any turbulence caused by hull protrusions, keels, skin fittings etc (Fig 4.7) Sailboat
Planing Vessel
Displacement Vessel
Fig 4.7 - Suitable Location For Transducers
33
IS12 Combi
4.2.2 Cutting and Sealing the Holes
NOTE
Fairing block
For the depth reading to be accurate, the depth transducer
must be as near vertical as possible. If the hull is angled in the
selected position, it may be necessary to use a fairing block cut
to the correct angle so that the transducer is vertical when fitted (Fig 4.8). The fairing block should be glued to the inside
and outside of the hull using marine grade sealant and allowed
to set completely before proceeding. This is not necessary for the
speed transducer.
Hull
Fig 4.8 - Using a Fairing Block
Equipment required - Drill
- Small (eg 5mm / 0.2in) drill bit
- 50mm (2.0in) hole saw
- Marine grade silicone sealant (eg Sikaflex)
- Fibre glass resin
- White spirit
Before drilling the holes, check the areas selected are as dry as
possible both inside and out - this is especially important on
GRP hulled boats to avoid possible osmosis damage.
First, drill a pilot hole in the selected position - a small hole is
much easier to repair if there is a problem with the location.
Once satisfied with the location, cut a 50mm (2.0in) hole.
NOTE
If replacing an existing transducer, remove all old sealant and
check the hole for any damage around the edges, which may
need to be repaired. If the existing hole is larger than 50mm
(2.0in) then this will need to be professionally repaired and it
will be necessary to select an alternative location for the new
transducer. If the hole is too small for the new transducer, the
best way to drill a larger hole is to drive a wooden block into
the existing hole and use this to locate the guide bit of the hole
saw (Fig 4.9). This will prevent the hole saw slipping.
Drill here
Wooden block
New hole diameter
Fig 4.9 - Enlarging an existing transducer hole
34
E04052
Instruction Manual
The hole must then be sealed - this is especially important with
GRP or sandwich foam hulled boats to avoid osmosis damage.
Ensure the hole and surrounding area is clean and dry - a hot
air gun is a useful tool to use here.
Apply a coating of fibreglass resin to the inside edge of the
hole, making sure all the raw edges are thoroughly sealed.
This will prevent water seeping into the hull layers causing
osmosis or delamination.
4.2.3 Installing the Depth Transducer
Remove the large plastic nut from the transducer and uncoil the
cable. Feed the cable through the hole from the outside of the
boat and then pass it through the nut. Ensure the nut is the right
way round..
Apply a generous amount of silicone sealant to the inside of the
transducer flange, then offer it up to the hole from the underneath of the boat (Fig 4.10A) -
A
B
C
Fig 4.10 - Installing the Depth Transducer
From the inside of the boat, apply more silicone sealant around
the transducer where it meets the hull (Fig 4.10B). Again, be
liberal in application - any excess can always be removed.
Replace the transducer nut and tighten down as hard as possible by hand (Fig 4.10C).
WARNING
Take care if using a wrench to tighten the nut - overtightening
could cause it to break. Normally hand tight is sufficient.
Check the installation both inside and out. Remove any excess
sealant using white spirit, making sure that there are no gaps
in the sealant around the transducer. Refer to the instructions
supplied with the sealant for curing times - allow sufficient
time for the sealant to set completely before proceeding.
E04052
35
IS12 Combi
When the sealant is set, recheck the seal integrity around the
transducer. The outside face of the transducer can be carefully
painted with antifouling to protect it, but check the instructions
of the antifouling to ensure that it is not solvent based, as this
could damage the transducer.
4.2.4 Installing the Speed Transducer
Skin Fitting
Sea Valve
Assembly
Paddlewheel
Assembly
Bung
Fig 4.11 - Speed Transducer Assembly
The speed transducer consists of four main parts (Fig 4.11) - The Skin Fitting, the outer flanged moulding which is
bonded permanently to the hull.
- The Sea Valve Assembly which prevents seawater rushing
into the boat when the paddlewheel is withdrawn.
- The Paddlewheel Assembly which houses the electronics and
the paddlewheel impellor
- The Bung which is used to seal the through hull opening
when the paddlewheel is removed for cleaning etc.
To separate the skin fitting, unscrew the large threaded collar
as indicated in Fig 4.12 and pull the Sea Valve Assembly and
Paddlewheel Assembly out -
Fig 4.12 - Separating Skin Fitting
36
E04052
Instruction Manual
NOTE
The Skin Fitting is marked with an arrow on the flange which
should be aligned so that it is pointing dead ahead, otherwise
the transducer will not give an accurate speed reading.
Apply a generous amount of silicone sealant to the inside of the
Skin Fitting flange, then offer it up to the hole from the underneath of the boat (Fig 4.13A). Check that it is oriented correctly
(see note above) and press it against the hull.
A
B
C
Fig 4.13 - Installing the Skin Fitting
From the inside of the boat, apply more silicone sealant around
the Skin Fitting where it meets the hull (Fig 4.13B). Again, be
liberal in application - any excess can always be removed.
Replace the skin fitting nut and tighten down as hard as possible by hand (Fig 4.13C). Check that the Skin Fitting does not
get rotated from its correct orientation while tightening.
WARNING
Take care if using a wrench to tighten the nut - overtightening
could cause it to break. Normally hand tight is sufficient.
Check the installation both inside and out. Remove any excess
sealant using white spirit, making sure that there are no gaps
in the sealant around the Skin Fitting. Refer to the instructions
supplied with the sealant for curing times - allow sufficient
time for the sealant to set completely before fitting the Sea
Valve and Paddlewheel assemblies.
When the sealant is set, recheck the seal integrity around the
Skin Fitting and re-insert the Sea Valve and Paddlewheel
assemblies. The Sea Valve assembly is “keyed” so that it can
only be inserted into the Skin Fitting in the correct orientation align the peg on the Sea Valve Assembly with the notch on the
top edge of the Skin Fitting.
Check that the Sea Valve and Paddlewheel assemblies are fully
engaged into the Skin Fitting before tightening the locking nut.
E04052
37
IS12 Combi
The outside face of the Paddlewheel Assembly can be carefully
painted with antifouling to protect it, but it should be removed
if the boat is to be left standing in the water for long periods.
NOTE
Replace the Paddlewheel Assembly with the bung when
returning the boat to the water to prevent the paddlewheel
impellor being damaged.
4.2.5 Withdrawing the Speed Transducer
When removing the Paddlewheel Assembly, a valve automatically closes which reduces the flow of seawater through the
aperture, allowing time for the bung to be fitted.
NOTE
Always have the bung to hand when withdrawing the Paddlewheel assembly.
Remove one of the “key ring” clips that lock the metal T-bar in
place on the top of the transducer, remove the T-bar and withdraw the Paddlewheel assembly by pulling on the large ring on
the top (Fig 4.14) -
Fig 4.14 - Withdrawing the Paddlewheel Assembly
CAUTION
Do not unscrew the large locking nut at the top of the Skin
Fitting when withdrawing the Paddlewheel assembly - this
locks the Sea Valve assembly in place.
Once the Paddlewheel assembly is clear, immediately replace it
with the bung supplied and lock it in with the T-bar - the Sea
Valve will slow the flow of seawater, but it should not be relied
upon to completely seal the hole.

4.3 Electrical Installation
IS12 instruments are ‘daisy chained’ together, with each instrument linking to the previous one by a single cable carrying
power and data (Fig 4.15). The cable plugs into either of the
two circular network ports on the rear of the instrument.
Fig 4.15 - IS12 “Daisychain” Cable System
The cable connectors are keyed so that they will always be correctly oriented when inserting the cable into the instrument the flattened edge of the connector should be facing down
when inserting (Fig 4.16) -
Network Bus Ports
Flattened edge
Fig 4.16 - Rear Connections
The first link in the IS12 system is the power cable, which
should be connected to the boat’s 12v DC supply via a 3 Amp
breaker or fuse as follows Red wire Black wire NOTE

4.4 Electronic Interference Suppression
IS12 has been designed to minimise the effects of interference
generated by the engine alternator. However, precautions
should still be taken by routing the cables away from the
engine compartment. Do not run the cables down trunking
carrying high current cables. The transducer cable should also
be kept separate from the boat’s radio antenna cable.
Engines with spark ignition, also some refrigerators should be
fitted with suppressors. Your local agent should be able to
advise on this and supply suppression kits where necessary.

5.5 Service & Warranty
Your equipment should seldom need servicing, although it will
benefit from an application of silicone or Teflon grease to the
contacts each season. The transducer should be removed and
cleaned of fouling regularly, and we recommend it is removed
and replaced with the bung supplied if the boat is to be laid up.
The unit is guaranteed for 2 years from date of retail sale. If it is
necessary to have the unit repaired, return it carriage prepaid to
the agent in the country of purchase with a copy of the receipted
invoice showing the date of purchase. Where possible, return
all the components unless you are certain that you have located
the source of the fault. If the original box is not available, ensure
that it is well cushioned in packing; the rigours of freight handling can be very different from the loads encountered in the
marine environment for which the unit is designed.
For Worldwide Warranty details, please refer to the Warranty
Card supplied with this unit.
