All Humminbird accessories are available through your full- service Humminbird dealer or factory direct through our number listed in the Customer Support section. This transducer can be mounted on the transom of the boat or bonded to the inside of a nanual hull boat. The transom installation, which is the most widely used, places the transducer on the outside of the boat hull.
However, there are several situations which may require a different type of transducer. Inboard boats, wood or metal hulls, and sail boats create unique transducer mounting needs Alternate transducers and mounting methods are detailed below.
The installation guide included on the next few pages provides detailed step by step instructions for installation of the control head and transducer. Do not begin this transducer installation until you read the Installation Preparation in the Operation Guide.
This chapter contains information critical to the correct installation of your transducer. Due to the wide variety of boat hulls, only general instructions are presented in the installation guide. If the propeller s is are forward of the transom, it jumminbird be impossible to find an area clear from turbulence, and a different mounting hummlnbird or transducer type should be hmminbird.
Step Two – Drill the Mounting Holes 1. Remove the mounting template from the front of the Operations Manual. Step Four – Humminnird the Transducer to the Transom 1. Apply silicone sealant to the mounting holes drilled into the transom. Align the transducer assembly with the drilled hummibird in the transom Figure 8. If the cable is too short, extension cables are available to extend the transducer cable up to a total of 50′ 15 m.
Call Humminbird Customer Support for more information. Follow these steps to route the cable through the transom: Inside the hull mounting generally produces good results in single thickness fiberglass-hulled boats. Humminbird cannot guarantee depth performance when transmitting and receiving through the hull of the boat since some signal loss occurs. The amount of loss depends on hull construction and thickness, and the installation.
Power humminbigd the Control Head. Run the boat at various speeds and water depths while observing the screen on the Control Head. If the unit functions mahual at low speeds but begins to skip or miss the bottom at higher speeds, the transducer needs to be moved. If depth performance is required, test the fishfinder in water at the desired depth. Consider the following to determine best location: Extension cables are available.
Humminbird is not responsible for over voltage or over current failures. In order to minimize the potential for interference with other marine electronics a separate power source such manuall a second battery may be necessary.
Install the control head by sliding it onto the mounting bracket until it is fully seated. To remove the unit simply depress the latch on the rear of the unit and lift Figure Your Humminbird is now ready for operation. For Transom Mount transducer installations, install the third mounting screw after the final transducer adjustments.
Humminbird 3 Humminbird Lane Eufaula, Alabama The DX is a dual frequency, dual beam unit, and generates two distinct sonar signals – one narrow, one wide.
Humminbird DX User Manual | 43 pages
Each signal is optimized for a particular purpose. First, the center beam transmits at a frequency of kHz in a 20 degree narrow symmetrical pattern for greater depth capability and excellent detail.
When the screen times out, the unit will be in simulator mode. When in simulator operation, the DX responds to control inputs as if it is in actual operation, so feel free to experiment or to customize the unit for your particular operation. If you are using the DX in Simulator when no transducer is connected, any selected options are lost when the unit is powered off. The DX will return to Factory Settings, or options selected when last used with a transducer, if no transducer is connected.
New sonar information appears on the right side of the graphic area of the display and moves to the left as new information is displayed. The DX automatically selects the appropriate depth range to show the depth of water beneath the transducer. The best way to learn to interpret structure is to operate the DX over a variety of known conditions and experiment with user functions to best represent those conditions on-screen.
If a button has no function or is inappropriate for the situation an audible error is heard. When the backlight is on the DX will consume more power than with the backlight humminbied. This is important when using the DX in a portable configuration powered by a separate battery, or when powering the unit from a trolling motor battery.
The Sensitivity function controls the sensitivity of msnual sonar receiver. The DX automatically adjusts the janual of receiver sensitivity based on a number of factors including the depth of the water and the level of noise present. Noise can be caused by other electronic devices, engines, trolling motors, propeller cavitation, and hydrodynamic flow among others. The range that positions the bottom depiction closest to the bottom of the screen, will best utilize the available display resolution.
The DX automatically adjusts the depth range depending on the depth of the water. Zoom can either operate automatically, in which the Zoom range is constantly adjusted to show the bottom, or manually, in which the user controls the location of the Zoom range. The DX can be set to alarm on only large and medium fish or set to alarm The sound is slightly different for each of the three fish symbol sizes, so with practice, it is possible to distinguish the size of the detected fish without looking at the unit.
The DX remembers this selection even when the unit is powered off. Further identification shows whether the fish is in the wide or narrow beam. The DX also displays the depth beneath the surface with the corresponding fish symbol. This gives the user easiest recognition of the bottom location even from a great distance. The DX remembers the Bottom Black setting when powered off. Two options are available: The factory setting is Hide.

Selecting Show brings up the Diagnostic screen. With the many User Options available to customize the DX, it is easy to configure the unit in such a way that it is detrimental to a particular use. By using the Reset function, all variable or user-controlled features of the DX are returned to the factory settings. Use Diagnostic while running the boat at high speeds to show the voltage gain.
Also, if you are using the DX in portable configuration or from the trolling motor battery Diagnostic can be used to evaluate the health of the battery by showing the current voltage.
Follow these simple procedures to ensure your Humminbird continues to deliver top performance. If the unit comes into contact with salt spray simply wipe the affected surfaces with a cloth dampened in fresh water. Repairs should be performed only by authorized Humminbird technicians.
Many requests for repair received by Humminbird involve units that do not actually reed repair. When in very shallow water, I get gaps in the bottom reading and inconsistent digital depth indication. The depth is measured from the transducer, not necessarily from the surface. My unit loses power at high speeds. Most Humminbird fishfinders have 200fx protection that turns the unit off when input voltage exceeds 20 VDC. Some outboard mnual do not effectively regulate the power output of the engine’s alternator and can produce voltage in excess of 20 volts when running at high RPMs.
Humminbird reserves the right humminblrd perform modifications or improvement on its products without incurring the obligation to install the changes on units previously manufactured, sold, delivered, or serviced.
