Installation Manual
Purpose of this Manual
This installation manual describes the procedures to install the following WMB-80F
equipment:
►
►
►
►
A WMB-80F-CT transceiver internally on a vessel keel or floor.
An ENL supplied Shuttle XPC personal computer.
A WMB-80F software program onto a computer hard disk drive.
A WMBT-80F 80kHz transducer.
It also provides procedures to commission the WMB-80F system during dockside
and sea trials.
Introduction
The WMB-80F is a multi-beam Sonar system that uses wide-angle sonar transducer to profile the water column and seafloor to very high resolution. It is this unique
combination of multi-beam sonar and computer processing power which provides
you with unparalleled information about the fishing environment. It gives you a
wide 120° port-starboard swath of the water column and seafloor, allowing you to
find and position reefs and wrecks, fish schools, seafloor hardness changes, and
foreign objects in the water column or on the seafloor. From the 120° swath, the
system processes 112 dynamic beams, with each beam containing detections from
the water column and seafloor.
The WMB-80F can be applied to a variety of fishing methods, as well as search
and rescue, customs, and police applications.
The information is presented in a user-friendly, mouse controlled, Windows-based
operating system. The system can output data to plotting software packages.
For optimal performance, roll, heave, pitch, heading and position inputs are all
required. These can be provided through an ENL recommended SC-30 satellite
compass.
The efficiency of heave compensation depends on the quality of the input data.
The WMB-80F does not correct the effects of heave, but minimises them. This is
why accurate ship measurements must be taken and the dockside and sea trial
commissioning procedures carried out thoroughly.
Main Features

Issue Date: 15 Dec 2009
Improved performance.
The use of separate transmit and receive arrays has enabled ENL to optimise
both transmit performance and receive sensitivity, giving improved performance
over traditional sonar and sounders.
High detail picture of the marine environment.
The transmit beam spreads over a 120° port-starboard swath and covers 4° foreaft while the receive beam covers 10° fore-aft, displaying a highly detailed picture
of the marine environment.
Beam stabilisation.
Beam stabilisation compensates for the movement of the vessel, providing accurate seafloor profiles and fish school locations.
Variable beam width.
Unique to the WMB-80F, the single beam view can not only be stabilised, but
the beam width can be varied from 5° to 40°.
Triple beam view.
With variable width and angle, the port, centre, and starboard views display
together to help build your understanding of the sea environment.

Bottom lock.
Bottom lock provides a traditional bottom lock mode where the changes in bottom depth are ignored and the bottom is drawn flat. Fish and other echoes are
shown relative to the flat bottom image, enabling better discrimination between
bottom fish and the seafloor.
Computer based profile storage.
A computer-based system means the WMB-80F can generate and store very
detailed seafloor profiles.
Digital signal processing (DSP).
Using DSP technology, the WMB-80F can provide an indication of changes
in seafloor hardness, ideal for scalloping, crayfishing, and trawling where you
want to understand and locate small changes on the seafloor.
80 kHz operating frequency.
Operating at a frequency of 80 kHz provides high seafloor definition with good
depth coverage.
2-D and 3-D zoom.
2-D zooming from 250 m out to 3 km. 3-D zooming from 10 m out to 1 km.
Depth and seafloor coverage.
Seafloor coverage is determined by the beamwidth in use: For a 90 degree
beamwidth, the seafloor coverage will be approximately twice the water depth.
For example, 100 m depth gives 200 m seafloor coverage with 112 beams every ping. For a 120 degree beamwidth, the seafloor coverage is 3.4 x depth.
For example 200m depth gives approximately 680m seafloor coverage.
Unique power management system (14 power levels).
14 power levels provide optimal performance over a wide range of seafloor
types and water depths.
More accurate 3-D.
Profiles 90 times faster than conventional single beam echo sounders, leading
to reduced costs and improved accuracy.
Future proof technology.
The computer based operating system and transceiver firmware are both upgradeable as new features and methods in software are developed.

Equipment Lists
Transducer Type
The WMB-80F system uses a compact transducer intended to be mounted inside
the hull through a suitable opening to allow the bottom face of the transducer to be
in contact with the sea water.
Type WMB-80F-SCT
The transducer is a rectangular-shaped, low-profile transducer for through-hull
mounting, encased in a sealed sea chest made to suit the vessel’s hull deadrise
angle. The compact transducer is best suited to steel and aluminium hulls.
A sea chest for housing and sealing the transducer should be designed and constructed by a reputable shipyard to suit the size and contours of the hull of each
individual vessel. This must be sized and constructed accurately. See page 64 for
a suggested sea chest design for use where the transducer cannot be fittied inside
the vessel’s hull.
The sea chest provides a stable platform for the transducer and must be mounted
as horizontal to the vessel as possible. An optional gland supplied by ENL in alloy,
plastic, or steel, provides the transducer cable through-hull seal.
The Transducer is supplied standard with a 20m cable.

Mounting
Mounting Considerations
Mounting the Transducer – General Considerations
The transducer is mounted on the hull below the water line, normally using a permanent sea chest. The transducer must be mounted so that it is aligned with the fore-aft
axis of the vessel. It must also be mounted so that the flat underside of the transducer is as close to horizontal as possible.
If the vessel has a keel, the transducer can be mounted somewhere along the
length of it. If it is mounted on the hull, it should be far enough away from the keel
so that the keel will not be detected within the 120° beam angle. Figure 2 shows a
sea chest type through-hull mounting designed specifically for a fast moving, alloy
hull crayfish boat. See page 64 for a suggested sea chest design for mounting the
transducer under the hull.
The performance of the system is directly related to the mounting location of the
transducer, especially for high-speed cruising. The installation should be planned in
advance, keeping in mind the fixed cable length of 20 meters and the following factors:
►
►
►
►
►
►
Air bubbles and turbulence caused by movement of the vessel seriously
degrade the sounding capability of the transducer. The transducer should be
located in a position with the smoothest water flow.
The transducer should not be mounted close to propellers because noise from
propellers can adversely affect the performance of the transducer.
Mount the transducer inboard of lifting strakes as these create acoustic noise.
The transducer must always remain submerged, even when the boat is rolling,
pitching or planing at high speed.
A practical choice would be somewhere between a ⅓ and a ½ of the boat’s
length from the stern. For planing hulls, a practical location is generally towards
the rear of the vessel, to ensure that the transducer is always submerged,
regardless of the planing angle.
Do not mount another transducer near the WASSP transducer as it will interfere
with the 120° beam.
Mounting Considerations for the Personal Computer
The ENL supplied Shuttle XPC computer must be mounted on a flat, stable surface.
The computer can be mounted horizontally using the supplied stand. Keep the following in mind when selecting a mounting location for the computer:
►
►
►
►
►
►
►
►
►
Secure the computer so that it cannot come loose in rough seas.
Keep the computer out of direct sunlight.
The temperature and humidity of the location where the computer is mounted
should be moderate and stable.
Locate the computer away from exhaust pipes and vents.
The mounting location should be well ventilated.
Mount the computer where shock and vibration are minimal.
Keep the computer away from electromagnetic field-generating equipment,
such as motors or generators.
For maintenance and checking purposes, leave sufficient space at the sides
and rear of the computer installation location.
A magnetic compass will be affected if placed too close to the computer. Do
not locate the computer closer than the following compass safe distances to
prevent interference with the magnetic compass:
• Standard compass: 0.8 meters.
• Steering compass: 0.6 meters.

If installing the UPS, carefully read the supplied manufacturer’s quick start guide
and install and operate the UPS accordingly:
Page 16 of 67
1)
Install the UPS indoors in a controlled environment where it cannot be accidentally turned off. Place it in an area with unrestricted airflow around the
unit, away from water, flammable liquids, gasses, corrosives, and conductive
contaminants. Maintain a minimum clearance of 100 mm on each side of the
UPS. Maintain an ambient temperature range of 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).
)
Connect equipment to the receptacles at the rear of the UPS: computers
and monitors should be connected to the ORANGE receptacles for battery
back up and surge protection. Other office machines that do not exceed the
capacity of the UPS may be plugged into either of the two BLACK receptacles that provide surge protection only.
3)
Obtain a suitable input power cable with a minimum cross-sectional area of

Inverter Outline and Dimensions
Figure 10 shows the physical dimensions of the optional ENL supplied inverter. If
installing the inverter, carefully read the supplied manufacturer’s user manual and
install and operate the inverter accordingly ensuring the environment is:
1)
DRY –
Do not allow water to drop on or enter the inverter.
)
COOL – The ambient air temperature should be between 0°C and 33°C
- the cooler the better.
3)
SAFE – Do not install the inverter in a battery compartment or other areas
where flammable fumes may exist, such as fuel storage areas or engine
compartments.
4)
VENTILATED – The inverter must be well ventilated at all times. Ensure
there is at least 25 mm of space around the inverter. Ensure the ventilation
fan and air holes are not obstructed at both ends of the inverter.
5)
DUST FREE – Do not install the inverter in a dusty environment as the
dust can be drawn into the unit when the fan is operating.
6)
CLOSE TO BATTERIES – Do not install the inverter in the same compartment as batteries. Do not mount the inverter where it will be exposed to
the gasses produced by the battery, as these are corrosive and prolonged
exposure will damage the inverter. Avoid excessive cable lengths. Use the
recommended wire lengths and sizes (detailed in Section 3-6 of the user
manual).

Installation Manual
Mount the Transducer Cable Gland
See Figures 12 and 13.
In the external sea chest and fairing type installations, the cable gland forms a seal
where the transducer cable passes through the hull. In low profile sea chest installations, the gland passes through the sea chest cover.
The gland pipe and a single gasket are the only parts of the gland that are located
inside the sea chest or outside the hull, all other parts are attached to the gland pipe
inside the vessel.
Mounting Instructions
Depending on the type of installation, there are various ways of mounting the cable
gland to the hull. The following example describes how to mount the gland through
the hull and then feed the cable through the gland. Adapt the following procedure
to suit your installation while taking the following into consideration:
►
►
►
►
Always use a good quality marine sealant to seal across areas that can leak.
When installing the gland packing ring, apply soapy water to the inside of the
packing ring and pass it over the transducer cable until it is sitting on top of the
gland pipe. The soapy water allows the packing ring to slide easily down the
cable. When sitting on top of the gland pipe, clean as much of the soapy water
off as possible to ensure the packing ring grips the cable when pressure is applied by the gland nut.
Tighten the gland nut by hand until secure. With the vessel in the water, check
for leaks at the gland and if leaking slightly, tighten the gland nut with a spanner
until the leak stops.
When all leaks are stopped, tighten the gland lock nut against the gland nut.
STEP 1 Place the bottom gasket over the gland pipe and apply marine sealant to
both sides of the gasket. See Figure 11.
Push the gland pipe into the hole.
STEP 2 Place the top gasket over the gland pipe and apply marine sealant to
both sides of the gasket.
Place the plate over the gland pipe and onto the top gasket.
Screw the lock plate onto the gland pipe until a good joint is achieved.
Clean away any excess marine sealant.
STEP 3 Feed the transducer cable through the gland.
See Figure 12 for a set of steps to feed a RJ-45 type cable through the
gland pipe.
STEP 4 Screw the gland lock nut as far as it can go onto the gland pipe.
Place the gland packing ring over the cable until it sits on top of the gland
pipe.
Place the gland follower and gland nut over the cable and screw the nut
onto the gland pipe firmly by hand.
STEP 5 With the vessel in the water, check for leaks at the gland and if leaking
slightly, tighten the gland nut with a spanner until the leak stops.
Page 20 of 67
With all leaks stopped and while holding the gland nut with a spanner,
tighten the gland lock nut against the gland nut with a spanner.

Installation Manual
RJ-45 Type BTxR and Cable:
The RJ-45 Type BTxR uses a transducer cable
consisting of seven CAT-5 cables and one
screened pair for the transmit connection.
To fit the RJ-45 connectors and cable through
the gland, no special preparation is required.
The BTxR Transceiver cable end has the RJ45 connectors fitted with “staggered” cable
lengths. This allows each RJ-45 connector
and its associated cable to be fed through the
gland fitting easily.
Commencing with the black RJ-45 cable and
black transmit cable, feed each cable in turn
through the gland, finishing off with the grey
RJ-45 connector and cable.
Complete fitting and tightening the gland as
shown in Figure 12 above.
Note different colour code for transmit cable
conductors: White, Black and Green. Previous
cable had .red, black and green coloured
conductors.

NMEA Interconnection
NMEA sentences need
to be converted from
current loop, to the RS232 that is used by the
computer.
If the data sources (talkers) do not have the
capability of doing this
themselves, a data converter must be used.
Data cables should be
run from existing sensors on the vessel to the
two of the three serial
ports at the rear of the
computer (COM 1, COM
3, and COM 4) using 9pin female D connectors,
terminated as shown in
Figure 21.
The WMB-80F uses information from the GPS position and ships true heading to
create the sea profile displays. This information is normally available on the vessel
from existing sensors. If heading is not available, the GPS course over ground can
be used instead, though this will seriously affect the accuracy of the seafloor profiling.
The WMB-80F will extract the required data from NMEA format input sentences.
The NMEA sentences accepted by the system are: ATT*, GGA, GGL, HDT, HDG,
HVE*, RCD, RMC, VTG, ZDA, PSXN, PFEC-GPatt, PFEC-GPhve, PASHR.
If an SC-30 with IF-NMEASC Interface Unit is installed, route the NMEA information to the computer. Only one cable is required. See below for configuration

Commissioning
Procedures
Commissioning should be performed by a trained WMB-80F technician immediately after installation of the system.
The commissioning procedures are designed to be carried out in sequential order.
If a test fails, fix the system until that test can be completed satisfactorily before
continuing. Failure to do this may invalidate the commissioning procedure. Commissioning procedures are divided into two sets:
►
►
Dockside Tests.
Sea Trials.
A. Dockside Tests
The first part of the commissioning procedures requires a number of dockside
tests to confirm that the WMB-80F system is installed and operating correctly,
before actually taking to sea.
Ship Measurements
Take measurements on the vessel between the vessel’s reference point, the GPS
antenna, and the transducer’s receiver face. These measurements must be as accurate as possible. The accuracy of these measurements has a direct effect on the
accuracy of depth soundings. Enter these values in the spaces below, and on the
Offset Corrections tab in the Ship Setup box. See Figure 26:

Advanced Technician Utilities
The Advanced Technician Utility forms part of the System Configuration Utility. The
advanced set up operations are only accessible when a technician’s dongle is connected to the P.C. and should only be performed by a trained technician.
The advanced set up options do not help the system operator to use the system.
Any changes made to the options are more likely to hinder operation. They are
mainly available to allow advanced diagnosis of the system and to help troubleshooting any problems it may have.
These functions can adversely affect the performance of the WMB80F system. Read this section carefully as any changes you make
may not be recoverable.
To enter the system configuration utility. See Figure 27:

WMB-80F Program Settings
1)
Start the transceiver and run the WMB-80F program. See Start Up / Shut
Down Procedures on Page 57.
With the transceiver ON, configured and connected correctly, the system
should now be ready to acquire data.
)
When displaying TX, click the Mode button to begin pinging.
3)
Check that the button animates to show transmission is in progress.
Commissioning Test 1: Channel Gain
The I/Q Bar Graph is used to diagnose issues with the transducer. In general operation the I/Q graph is mostly unreadable, although any major problems with any
of the transducer elements would be reasonably easy to spot (such as one of the
channels not being connected to the receiver board).
The Channel drop down box allows for a channel to be selected to form a reference for the other channels. The top bar graph is a double sided bar graph referenced to the selected channel. The lower bar graph is an absolute bar graph of the
value received on that channel. As the data comes in throughout the duration of
a ping, the display instantly changes. The I channel is displayed in LIGHT BLUE
and the Q channel is displayed in GREEN. The letters along the lower axis are directly linked to the respective 26 channels on the receiver board and the transducer elements. The slider bar to the right of the bars controls the gain of the display.
UP increases the gain, while DOWN decreases the gain. See Figure 29.
1)
Click the I/Q Bars button in the Beam Forming box. If the I/Q Bars box is
blank, then the WMB-80F system is not acquiring data.
)
Use the slider bar on the side of the box to adjust the lower 52 bars so that
they fill about a third of the form height.
Ensure there are no extreme (more than 200%) changes in signal strength
across the channels. The display should update regularly and the values
should fluctuate, but if any bars are full ON or full OFF there is a problem
that you need to resolve before continuing.
The source of problems identified in this test is most likely to be in the connections
from the transducer cable into the transceiver receiver board. If a wire/connector
is loose or has lost some of its insulation you will likely see a blank or very high
channel.

Commissioning Test 2: Channel Signal Function
The Raw Beam Info tab shows a voltage graph of signals received over a single
ping. The sliders at the bottom of the box allow you to change the horizontal resolution of the graph, allowing you to fit signals onto the screen that would otherwise
be lost off the end of the screen.
You can select the desired channel from the Channel box. The slider on the righthand side of the box allows you to modify the gain of the graph. The screen in Figure 30 shows a typical transmission pulse with a reasonably weak bottom return,
which is a typical shape. When functioning correctly, all 26 channels should display
very similar information to each other.
Click the Raw Info button on the technician Options box to open the Raw Info
box. Click the Raw Beam Info tab. Adjust the gain and range of the graph so that
the graph’s maximum range only just fits on the axis. The graph should have a
small ripple at the beginning followed by a relatively blank period and then a strong
pulse with a rippling tail. This strong pulse is the return from the seafloor. Use the
selections in the Channel box to view channels A to Z. Check that all of the channels have similar shaped waveforms on them. If any have non random noise,
significant DC offsets or are without the correct general shape, resolve these problems electrically (check connections).

Commissioning Test 3: Electrical Noise
Before running the following tests, with the advanced technician Options box
open, make the following changes if necessary. See Figure 31 below:
1)
Set the FFT Window to: DolphChebychev.
)
Set the Suppression to: -30 dB.
3)
Set the three Integration Factor boxes to: 2.
Figure 30 –Options Box
Close the Options and Advanced Options boxes and then carry out the following.
See Figure 31:
1)
Open a Sonar display as a full screen display.
)
Enable manual range control on the Range Control Knob and change the
range dial to 90 m.
3)
Change the gain to 30 on the Gain Control Knob.
Check the centre line of the Sonar display for a consistent signal. If present this is
evidence of noise signals common to all channels. If this noise can be clearly seen
as more than a faint blue-white vertical line on the display, it is likely that all of the
receiver channels are picking up electrical noise. If the display is relatively clean
move to the next test. The most likely cause of noise problems is incorrect termination of the transducer cable grounding and screening.

Note: Test 4 is also required
for bottom detection to track
correctly.
Commissioning Test 4: Side Lobe Levels
Minimisation affects the translation of echoes to lateral (athwart - both sides) positions on the display. The individual elements of the transducer receive an echo at
minutely different times and amplitudes. These differences are used to determine
where the display should represent this echo. Minimisation affects one of the
parameters used in this calculation. If the setting is too low there will be excessive
side lobes, meaning echoes will be spread too wide. If this setting is too high then
some echoes will be suppressed. Values of 2000 to 10,000 work best.
In the Sonar display, check the side lobes. This is best checked in a minimum of 10
metres of water below the transducer with power level set to ≈4 to 7, any less and
it will be difficult to see a problem. Side lobe levels should be YELLOW/BLUE while
the seafloor is RED with Minimisation at 0. Set the Minimization at a level as low
as possible, but where the side lobe levels are negligible on the display. This value
should be between 2000 and 10,000. See Figure 33.
If Minimisation set to 10,000 does not totally remove all side lobe signals on the
sonar display it is possible something is wrong. Confirm that the transducer has
been mounted so that there is no obstruction to either the 120° transmission angle
or the face of the receiver array. (Refer Figure 2). If the keel of the boat obscures
the 120° angle you may need to conduct this test at sea.

Interference Filter - The Interference Filter
enables reduction in interference caused by other
ultrasonic sub-sea acoustic devices such as
sounders. It also provides some noise filtering.
It is recommended that the interference filter be
left on if you have another sounder or sonar on
your vessel that operates at the same time as the
WMB-80F.
Set the Interference Filter Level to high when encountering strong interference, and low when the
interference is weak.
Smoothing - Smoothing only affects the single
beam view. It allows averaging of the individual
seafloor samples in the fore-aft direction to eliminate the quantised or pixelated effect that would
otherwise be visible on the single beam view.
Generally, the best value for smoothing is 2.
Minimisation - This term is used to describe the
filtering process used to remove sidelobe signals.
Sidelobe generated signals show up as a ring on
the sonar view where the transmission pulse first
strikes the seafloor, or as a mirror of features on
either port or starboard.
Figure 33 –Advanced Options Box
Sidelobe generated features can confuse the sonar picture making it hard to interpret. Too much
minimisation can also distort the sonar image.
See Figure 33.
Clutter - Clutter describes the filtering process
used to remove low level (noise) signals. The
control sets the threshold for the minimum signal
level that will be displayed. Caution - do not set
too high a value of clutter or detail will be lost. The
default value for Clutter is 0.
Normalise Sonar Displays - Ticking the Normalise Sonar Displays check box boosts the overall
system gain to compensate for the weaker signal
returns when working in deeper water. This effectivley gives a “brighter” bottom display. Default
condition is box unchecked.

B. Sea Trials
The second part of the commissioning procedures requires taking the vessel on a
short sea trial.
Sea Trial Commissioning Step 1: Array Polarity
With the WMB-80F running and displaying the sonar view, determine if the right side of
the sonar display shows topography that is on the starboard side of the vessel.
If you are unsure of the nature of the sea floor you will need to find a feature such as
a rock, bank or significantly sloped sea profile. Use the contour view to navigate and
cross your own track in opposite directions over this feature. If the display seems
incorrect, change the polarity of the Swap Array check box in the Ship Setup Options, Sensor Values tab and record the new value below. See Figure 37.
Swap Array Selected
Yes
/
No
Swap Roll Check Box
Swap Array Check Box
Figure 36 –Swap Array and Swap Roll Check Boxes
Sea Trial Commissioning Step 2 : Roll Correction Polarity
Watch the sonar view carefully when the vessel is subject to some roll. Once the
patch test (see Step 3 and Figure 38) is completed, if the roll polarity is correct the
sea floor shown on the sonar view should stay steady as the vessel rolls. If the
roll polarity is not correct, the roll of the sonar display will double what is actually
present. If you are unsure, compare the results with the Swap Roll check box
selected and then deselected.
Note the correct polarity value below and leave the Swap Roll check box in that
state.

Sea Trial Commissioning Step 3 : Patch Test (Roll Correction)
Carry out the following patch test. This test has been automated and the software
will calculate the value of roll correction and store this value. Before proceeding,
check and confirm that there is a tick in the “Use Patch Roll” box, Ship Setup Options -Sensor Values tab. See Figure 37.
It can be quite hard to perform a patch test in some vessels. Generally the more
room you have, the easier it will be to get the paths overlapping in exactly opposite
directions. Look at the screen shots in Figure 38 for guidance. Note: The patch
testing needs to be performed at a depth of at least 15 metres over an area of
smooth flat seafloor.
Page 56 of 67
