Broken transducer cable (gland)
« on: February 09, 2016, 12:08:02 PM »
Hi

I just finish my tow fish, unfortunately have a small problem on my transducer.

My transducer cable is damage just above the transducer itself. The cable gland was also damage so I had to remove it.
 
I am not worried about the cable, as I sure I able to solder it together. My biggest concern is how to seal the transducer so it would not flood the first time I put it back in the water.

Any suggestions on how to approach this?

Hi Kenneth

All make good clean, abrade with fine sandpaper and then sealed with a sealant (Sikaflex, Bilthema ect). Here, the sealant generously apply and a cone around the cable forms.

Hi Rüger

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately the ground wire was damage and broken off just above the transducer. I manage to grind a hole in the transducer and solder the ground wire back on.

Now to the big question. Is it possible to measure the transducer circuit?

I heard you...
I don't think measuring the circiuts is needed. A damage to the cable should have no effect on the interior of the transducer. Just follow the colors of the wires and reconnect them.
