898 Transducer Extension Cable
« on: October 22, 2012, 03:12:20 PM »
Hello,

Can someone confirm if this is the correct cable to use for 898 SI unit?  When I review the list of compatible devices on HB's site, it did not include 898SI.

Thanks!!

Brian

Yep, the EC-W10 is a common 10 foot extension cable.  HB does not always have an updated list..

That is the correct one.
Looks like they only partially listed the 898c Si models name as “898C”

Thanks!! 

Now I have another problem.  Since I'm having trouble deciding where to mount the SI transducer on a In/Out board setup, would it cause any damage to the head unit if I use the ECW10 extension cable to connect this old 2D transducer to the 898 unit?  The old 2D transducer came from a Humminbird 400TX.

No it should not Brian, but that looks like one of the older Tri-Beam transducers.  Your 898c Si unit may not automatically recognize that a transducer is connected to it when you power the 898 on.  Plus you should change the Transducer Select/Connected Transducer menu setting to the “Quad Beam” menu setting as the Tri-Beam transducer will not make for good Si sonar readings!  This same transducer could be used as a high-speed 2D sonar transducer if you are planning on using the AS-Si-DB-Y cable or a Transducer Switch (TS3).

Thanks!!  Although I don't understand the reason why you are suggesting "Quad Beam" setting for a Tri-Beam transducer.  In any case, I'll give a try. 

In any case, I still need to work on mounting the actual SI transducer on in/out board setup.   Since this thread is getting some what off it's original track, I'll start a new thread.

The QuadraBeam transducer is basically the Tri-Beam transducer with a built-in temperature sensor.
