Installation of the echo sounder sensor. With STRONGER regulator now without problems! https://strongermarine.com/product_category/%d1%80%d0%b5%d0%b3%d1%83%d0%bb%d1%8f%d1%82%d0%be%d1%80-%d0%b4%d0%b0%d1%82%d1%87%d0%b8%d0%ba%d0%b0-%d1%8d%d1%85%d0%be%d0%bb%d0%be%d1%82%d0%b0/ Our company in 2020 planned to release a number of new products. And many of them are already ready for serial production, but it so happened that some companies from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine decided to counterfeit our products with impunity. It is possible to protect your rights to your own inventions only by patenting your own inventions. Well, unfortunately it takes a lot of time to execute and coordinate a patent, especially in other countries. Therefore, the release dates of new products have been significantly moved forward in time. But today we have finally received another patent from Russia for a useful model of the regulator for the transducer sensor.
Installing the echo sounder sensor. With STRONGER adjuster now everything is simple! This device is designed to raise/lower and adjust the correct angle of the echosounder transducer. This is necessary for accurate display of echolocation data in cases of different trim of the boat on the stern or on its bow. For the correct display of data, the transducer should be strictly parallel to the water surface (horizon). Thus recommend to install their transducers almost all manufacturers of echolocation. In this case, the reflected signal received by it will most correctly display information on the screen of your device!
Installing the echo sounder sensor. Why unnecessary torment from a task that can not be done once and for all! The picture above shows the options of angles of inclination of the transducer, as well as variants of drawing fish on the echo sounder screen. The upper two pictures show the wrong position of the transducer, such position of the transducer is possible either in case of incorrect initial installation or in case of longitudinal trim to the stern or bow of the boat (more often – to the stern). Only in the case when the sensor is located strictly parallel to the horizon, the information on the screen of your echo sounder is displayed clearly and without distortion (bottom picture). But a similar situation occurs with the drawing of the bottom of the reservoir. If the position of the transducer sensor is incorrect, the real picture is very distorted on the screen of your device. That is why it is very important to achieve the correct angle of the transducer!
Installing the echo sounder transducer is really not easy! The boat, depending on the number of passengers, cargo placed on it, as well as its weight and location, succumbs to longitudinal axial roll (pitch), which in turn, can be directed both to the bow and the stern of the boat. As a consequence, the standard installed sensor in different situations does not always display information correctly.
Attaching the transducer to the STRONGER regulator
To attach the transducer to the regulator, you need to drill holes in the regulator plate to match the location of the transducer mounting holes, as shown in the figure below:
After installing the regulator to the stern of the boat, you need to initially set the transducer according to the echo sounder manufacturer’s recommendations. In the future all adjustment and adjustment of the sensor to the real conditions will take place remotely from the place of controlling your boat.
Installing the echo sounder sensor. With STRONGER regulator now without problems!
Installation of the regulator itself is carried out according to the same principle as the usual mounting of the transducer on the stern of the boat. It is important that the regulator and the echo sounder transducer do not protrude beyond the edges of the boat and thus do not create additional interference in its operation.
STRONGER regulator operation
Installing an echo sounder transducer – all the useful stuff in this article!
If you fish alone, or with the same team, and you use practically the same weight of cargo and place it in the same places, keeping the same longitudinal trim of the boat, then with the help of the button (M), by pressing and holding it for 7-8 seconds, you can fix for yourself the so-called “favorite position” of the transducer tilt angle. In this case you can always return to your “favorite position” after any manipulations with the unit, just briefly (1 sec.) pressing the button (M), and the unit will automatically set the transducer sensor to your “favorite position”, which was previously stored in the memory. Even in case of power failure from the control unit of the device, the information about the “favorite position” is stored in its non-volatile memory of the device until the next time you change this “favorite position”.
During long high-speed passages, as well as when the boat is parked, or when the boat is mounted on a carriage, you can raise the transducer to the maximum height almost parallel to the stern of the boat and thus eliminate unnecessary resistance of the echo sounder sensor against the water, prevent algae fouling of the transducer during parking, as well as prevent sensor breakage when colliding with water obstacles or the bottom of the reservoir when the boat approaches the shore with its stern to the shore, as well as in shallow water.
On the picture above is a device that will allow you to perform “Installation of the echo sounder transducer” as easy as possible and with maximum benefit in the future from the use!
Also lifting the transducer is very important at the moment of loading and further transportation of the boat on the carriage. To do this, you press the up arrow key of the button group (AUTO) and the transducer will automatically rise up to the final position.
The unit is completely sealed. The control unit can be made in two versions: budget and top. In the budget version the control is performed by a three-position button without the possibility of precision adjustment of the transducer angle.
And in the top version, control is carried out using a multifunctional control panel with an LED indicator for the position of the transducer sensor, which is installed on the dashboard of the boat.
Installing the echo sounder sensor. We hope that we were able to give you a way to solve this issue. It is forbidden to use the device when the ambient temperature is below 0 degrees. This can lead to a violation of its tightness and breakage of the device.
This device is undergoing the process of patent rights in many countries, including Ukraine, Russia, and EU countries.
We hope that with the help of this device fishermen and fans of outdoor activities on the water will be able to improve the quality of their fishing trips, as well as safety on the water, thanks to clear information that they can get from their echo sounder or scanner structures! And of course save their budget for the purchase of new transducers! https://www.weekender.ua/
