MAINTENANCE, TROUBLE- SHOOTING WARNING ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD Do not open the equipment. Only qualified personnel should work inside the equipment. IMPORTANT Do not apply paint, anti-corrosive sealant or contact spray to coating or plastic parts. Those items contain organic solvents that can damage coating and plastic parts, especially plastic connectors.

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.
4. INSTALLATION 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.
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.
4. INSTALLATION 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.
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.
4. INSTALLATION 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.
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. Do not tighten the screws completely at this time.
4. INSTALLATION 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.
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.
4. INSTALLATION 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.
