Understanding X-Sonic: A small micro-controller is embedded into every X-Sonic transducer. During final test at the factory, the transducer’s unique details are measured and stored in memory, enabling the echosounder to automatically configure itself to the transducer being used. The micro-controller “talks” with the connected echosounder via a single conductor in the transducer cable. This feature enables the transducer to transmit important data to the echosounder, including transducer model, functions, frequency, power rating, beam pattern, impedance, ceramic element configuration and acoustic window material.
X-Sonic transducers are designed to work with Simrad, Lowrance & B&G's state-of-the-art of multi-function displays. The new generation multi-function displays include a black 9-Pin X-Sonic connector. An adapter cable is available for use with the previous generation of multi-function displays that utilise the original style 7-pin blue connector.
