Choosing a Transducer

When trying to determine which transducer is best for you, you'll need to consider the following variables:


Material

The first step is to determine what material the transducer should be composed of.

  • Plastic housings are recommended for fiberglass or metal hulls.
  • Stainless Steel housings are recommended for steel or aluminium hulls.
  • Bronze housings are recommended for fiberglass or wood hulls.

Bronze is preferable to plastic for wooden hulls because the expansion of wood could damage a plastic transducer and cause a leak. Installation of a stainless steel housing in a metal hull requires an insulating fairing, available from your Raymarine dealer.

A metal housing should NOT be installed in a vessel with a positive ground system.
