7 pin transducer connector

Post by FishingViking » Thu Jun 04, 2009 1:55 pm

Hi
Can anyone help me with a diagram over the 7 pin transducer connector for 957c(x) combo?
I have a allready in hull airmar m260 1kw 50/200kHz transducer installed, used with a simrad ce32, but I would like to use it with my new hummingbird fishfinder.
I have looked several sites and places and have come so far that the top pin(1) is for the 83/200kHz signal and the middel pin (4) is for ground, BUT is the 50/200 kHz signal using the same pins???
I have talked to airmar (europe) about the specs for the transducer and they say that it is compatible.
Hope someone can help me, can't belive i am the first on the planet to try this configuration...
Regards from sunny Copenhagen

Maybe Margret from airmar in Denmark doesn't know.
Here is the layout of the B260, sister of the M260

1 = 50kHz positive
2 = 50 kHz negative
3 = 200 khz pos
4=nc
5= 200 khz neg
6= thermistor temp shield
7= thermistor pos

Hi Hendrik
Thanks for your reply.
Sorry for beeing unclear, i got the airmar layout, it is the humminbird 7 pin connector diagram i am looking for...

Humminbird Dualbeam plus transducer

Post by LWinchester » Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:49 am

FishingViking,

Maybe this will help. This is looking at the connector from the Humminbird transducer. My suggestion would be to purchase a transducer extension cable, cut it in half and use that to splice into your transducer. That way your original Hbird transducer and cable remain intact. I've not used color identification on purpose. The color code in the original transducer cable is different than the color code in the extension cable. Once you cut the calbe, you can use an ohm meter and map the pins to the color of the wires.

6
5 1
7
4 2
3

#6 200/83 Khz +
#7 bare ground for everything
#5 temp +
1,2,3,4 not used.

Before you make the connections you'll probably need to set your frequency to 200 only. The 957 sends both the 200 and 83 Khz signals over the same wire to the same transducer element. Also the temperature may not work as they may not use the same components to measure temp. Whether this would harm the temp measuring in your transducer or not I don't know.

I've tried this on a Raymarine (Airmar) with the 200 Khz only and it worked well.

pinout retry

The layout of the pinouts did not show on the post as I enterned them due to using spaces. I'll tring again using "-" for spacing instead.

Here is the pin connections of the 957's QuadraBeam Transducer Connector.

Here is the same for the ECW-10 Transducer Extension Cable that L.Winchester mentioned:

Perfect, Thanks a lot guys
I am wating to get the specific wiring diagram for my transducer from airmar, they had to have my part number on the transducer to find the correct set of drawings, because the m260 is produced whit diplexer, (signals 50/200khz on one pin) and whitout (signals 50/200khz on two pins), due to seperat 50 and 200 khz elements in the transducer.
I will report back as soon as i have made the cable and tested the configuration, probably next weekend.
I like this site more and more. Once again thanks!
