The Structure-Scan Sonar Imaging transducer provides additional imaging functionality for larger offshore vessels that require a through-hull installation, the company says. The transducer will be linked to the StructureScan Sonar Imaging module and the Simrad NSE or NSO multifunction display. With dual-frequency operation (455 kHz and 800 kHz), the transducer has a depth capability to an estimated 400 feet and side-viewing detail to 240 feet on both sides of the boat. The through-hull transducer has a 1-inch stem with a 1.5-inch fairing block option that can be cut to fit the deadrise of a hull. It also features a StructureScan Y-cable to allow the connection of two StructureScan Sonar Imaging transducers to one StructureScan module for use on keeled boats. The cable allows the system to combine right and down beams from the starboard transducer and the left beam from the port transducer for a complete down-looking and side-scan view. The transducer kit with Y-cable harness is $1,199 and can be purchased from authorized U.S. Lowrance and Simrad dealers. Contact: Simrad Yachting, (800) 628-4487. www.simrad-yachting.com
