1. OPERATION Power On/Off 1. Press the /BRILL key to turn on the power. The unit beeps, the startup screen appears, and then the equipment checks the ROM and RAM for proper operation. After the com- pletion of the equipment check, the last-used display appears.
2. Rotate the MODE knob again to choose the display mode desired. The screen you chose appears soon there- after. Single frequency display Low frequency (50 kHz) The sounder uses ultrasonic signals to detect bottom conditions. The lower the frequency of the signal, the wider the detection area.
1. OPERATION Bottom zoom display This mode expands bottom and bottom fish on the left-half window. This mode is useful for determining bottom contour. When the bottom depth increases, the display automatically shifts to keep the bottom echo at the lower part of the screen.
Choosing Range The basic range may be chosen in Auto or Manual mode. 1. Press the RANGE key to open the range set- ting window. Range Auto Manual 15 ft 30 ft 60 ft These are 120 ft available with 200 ft Manual mode.
1. OPERATION Manual gain adjustment The GAIN knob adjusts the sensitivity of the receiver. Generally, use a higher gain setting for greater depths and a lower setting for shallower waters. CAUTION Use the proper gain setting. Incorrect gain may produce wrong depth indication, possibly resulting in a dangerous situation.

1.12 Suppressing Low Level Noise Low intensity "speckles" may appear over most of screen. This is mainly due to sediment in the water or noise. These can be suppressed by adjusting Clutter on the menu. Clutter appearance Note: Clutter cannot be adjusted when Fishing or Cruising is selected on the Auto Gain setting window.
1. OPERATION 1.14 A-Scope Display This display shows echoes at each transmission with amplitudes and tone proportional to their intensities, on the right of the screen. It is useful for estimating the kind of fish school and bottom composition. Note: In the dual frequency display, the A- Scope display is only available with the high fre- quency display.
Note: To hide the fish symbol, choose Off at step 4 and press the ENTER key. 5. Press the MENU/ESC key twice to close the window. Fish Info 1. Press the MENU/ESC key to open the menu. 2. Use to choose Display and press the ENTER key.
1. OPERATION tain distance from the bottom. Note that the bottom lock display must be turned on to use this alarm. Water temperature alarm: The water tempera- ture alarm alerts you when the water tempera- ture is within (inside alarm) the alarm range set or under/over (outside alarm) the range set.
8. Use to choose Span (or Radius for Arrival) and press the ENTER key. 9. Use to set the range of depth, tem- perature, speed or distance as appropriate. To shorten the alarm range marker use and to lengthen use 10.For the bottom alarm, temperature alarm, speed alarm or arrival alarm, press the ENTER key to finish, and then go to step 13.

INSTALLATION Display Unit Mounting considerations The display unit can be installed on a tabletop or flush mounted in a panel. When choosing a location keep the following in mind: • The temperature and humidity should be moderate and stable. • Locate the unit away from exhaust pipes and vents.
4. INSTALLATION Thru-hull Mount Transducer Transducer mounting location The thru-hull mount transducer (520-5PSD, 520-5MSD) provides the best performance of all, since the transducer protrudes from the hull and the effect of air bubbles and turbu- lence near the hull skin is reduced. When the boat has a keel, the transducer should be at least 30 cm away from it.
Typical thru-hull mount transducer installations Flat Washer Fairing Block Hull Deep-V Hull Flat Washer Hull Rubber Washer Flat Hull Typical thru-hull mount transducer installations Procedure for installing the thru-hull mount transducer 1. With the boat hauled out of the water, mark the location chosen for mounting the trans- ducer on the bottom of the hull.
4. INSTALLATION Transom Mount Transducer The transom mount transducer is very com- monly employed, usually on relatively small I/ O or outboard boats. Do not use this method on an inboard motor boat because turbulence is created by the propeller ahead of the trans- ducer.
Remarks on installation • Turn off the engine and anchor the boat while installing the equipment. • Install the transducer in the engine room. • Except for installing the transducer to the bottom of hull, do not turn on its power so it may be damaged.
4. INSTALLATION b)Gently dismount the transducer with a knife or a piece of wood. c)Reattach the transducer elsewhere as shown in "Attaching the transducer." d)Check the installation again. Final preparation Support the transducer with a piece of wood to keep it in place while it is drying. Let the transducer dry 24-72 hours.
Note 3: For single drive boat, mount on the starboard side at least 75 mm (3") beyond the swing radius of the propeller. 75 mm (3") minimum beyond swing radius Mounting location on single drive boat Note 4: For twin drive boat, mount between the drives.
4. INSTALLATION 3. If the bracket has been temporarily fas- tened to the transom, remove it. Apply a marine sealant to the threads of the three #10 x 1-1/4" self tapping screws to prevent water seeping into the transom. Screw the bracket to the hull.
8. Position the two cable clamps and fasten them in place. If used, push the cable cover over the cable and screw it in place. 9. Route the cable to the instrument being careful not to tear the cable jacket when passing it though the bulkhead(s) and other parts of the boat.
4. INSTALLATION Thru-hull mount water temperature sensor T-02MSB, T-03MSB • Select a suitable mounting location consid- ering the following points: • Select a mid boat flat position. The sensor does not have to be installed perfectly per- pendicular; however, the location should not be such that the transducer may be damaged when the boat is dry-docked.
Fuse holder Power supply lines (red and black) Cable tie How to fix fuse holders Establishing the ground The ground wire (1.25 sq or more, local supply) should be as short as possible. The signal line ground is isolated from the chassis ground, however the power line is not insu- lated.
