Instrument Transducer Connectivity

Accurate, Reliable Data


Check the compatibility and connectivity of your instrument transducers based on network requirements and installed instrument displays

Depth Transducer Connectivity

SeaTalk1

These transducers are compatible with ST40 and ST60+ displays on the SeaTalk1 network. The transducer simply connects to the back of one of the following instruments:

  • ST40 Depth
  • ST40 Bidata
  • ST60+ Depth
  • ST60+ Tridata
  • i40 Depth
  • i40 Bidata
  • i50 Depth
  • i50 Tridata

SeaTalkng

The transducers above are also compatible with ST70, ST70+ and i70 instrument displays on the SeaTalkng network via a depth pod or iTC-5 (both sold separately).

The transducer is connected to the pod or iTC-5 which converts the transducer signals to SeaTalkng. The pod or iTC-5 is then connected to your SeaTalkng backbone.

Pod or iTC-5?

Transducers connect via pods to SeaTalk ng | Raymarine

Depth Pod

Pods are available for depth, speed and wind and the transducer should only be connected to the associated pod (i.e. depth transducer to depth pod).

iTC-5

The new iTC-5 can convert transducer signals for depth, speed/ temp, wind, compass and rudder reference all in the one unit, eliminating the need for multiple pods.

The transducers above are for depth only. If you have a Bidata or Tridata display you will also require a Speed and Temperature transducer. Alternatively, see our range of triducer transducers that combine Depth, Speed and Temperature within one transducer.

Depth, Speed and Temperature Transducer Connectivity

SeaTalk1

These transducers are compatible with:

  • ST40 Bidata
  • ST60+ Tridata
  • i40 Bidata
  • i50 Tridata

The transducer simply connects to the back of the instrument.

The transducers above can also be used to connect to a Depth and Speed Instrument on the SeaTalk1 network. For example:

  • ST40 Depth and ST40 Speed
  • i40 Depth and i40 Speed
  • ST60+ Depth and ST60+ Speed
  • i50 Depth and i50 Speed

In this case the depth cables from the transducer connect to the back of the Depth Display and the speed cables into the back of the Speed Display.

SeaTalkng

The transducers above are also compatible with ST70, ST70+ and i70 instrument displays on the SeaTalkng network via a depth and speed pod or an iTC-5 (pods and iTC-5 sold separately).

The transducer is connected either to the Speed and Depth pods or the iTC-5 which converts the transducer signals to SeaTalkng. The pods or iTC-5 is then connected to your SeaTalkng backbone.

Pod or iTC-5?

Pods are available for depth, speed and wind and the transducer should only be connected to the associated pod (i.e. depth transducer to depth pod).

For recording both depth and speed/temp with the transducers above you will require a depth pod and a speed pod.

The iTC-5 (image above right) can convert transducer signals for depth, speed/temp, wind, compass and rudder reference all in the one unit, eliminating the need for multiple pods.

Speed & Temperature Transducer Connectivity

SeaTalk1

These transducers are compatible with ST40 and ST60+ displays on the SeaTalk1 network. The transducer simply connects to the back of one of the following instruments:

  • ST40 Speed
  • ST40 Bidata
  • ST60+ Speed
  • ST60+ Tridata
  • i40 Speed
  • i40 Bidata
  • i50 Speed
  • i50 Tridata

The transducers above are for speed/temp only. If you have a Bidata or Tridata display you will also require a Depth transducer. Alternatively, see our range of triducer transducers that combine Depth, Speed and Temperature within one transducer.

Compatibility and connectivity

Transducers are compatible with:

  • ST40/ST60/i40/i50 on SeaTalk1 and i50 on STng - operate as repeaters only (can't calibrate from these instruments) Note: a SeaTalk to SeaTalkng converter may be required
  • ST70, ST70+ and i70 on the SeaTalkng network are required for calibration

SeaTalk1

The transducers above may be used with ST40, i40, i50 and ST60+ displays (as repeaters only) on the SeaTalk1 network via a SeaTalk to SeaTalkng convertor (right).

Please note that ST40/i40/i50 and ST60+ displays will only work as repeaters if used with the above transducers. You cannot calibrate the transducers from these instruments. For calibration you would require a following SeaTalkng instrument: ST70, ST70+ or i70 display in your network.

If you don't have an ST70/ST70+ or i70 in your system, then we advise you use an analogue Transducer in one of the following Tabs:

  • Depth
  • Depth, Speed, Temperature
  • Speed, Temperature
  • Other Transducers

SeaTalkng

The transducers above may be used with the ST70, ST70+ and i70 on the SeaTalkng network. The transducer connects directly to the backbone - no pod or iTC-5 is required.

Compatibility and connectivity

WIND

In a wind system you can choose between a Rotavecta transducer or a Wind Vane transducer.

SeaTalk1

The Rotavecta wind transducer is compatible with the ST40 (retired), i40, i60 and ST60+ (retired) wind instruments on the SeaTalk1 network. The transducer simply connects to the back of one of the following instruments:

  • ST40 Wind
  • i40 Wind
  • ST60+ Wind
  • i60 Wind

The Wind Vane transducer is compatible with the ST60+ or i60 Wind Instrument on the SeaTalk1 network.

SeaTalkng

Both the Rotavecta and Wind Vane transducers are compatible with the i70 ST70 and ST70+ (retired) instruments on the SeaTalkng network via an iTC-5 transducer converter (sold separately). The transducer is connected to the iTC-5 which converts the transducer signals to SeaTalkng. The iTC-5 is then connected to your SeaTalkng backbone. The RotaVecta and Windvane transducers can also be connected directly to the back of an i60 Wind on the STng network.

The Wind Vane transducer can also use a ST70 wind pod to connect to the SeaTalkng network.


COMPASS

Fluxgate Compass transducer to ST60+ | Raymarine

SeaTalk1

The Fluxgate Compass transducer is compatible with the ST40 and ST60+ instruments on the SeaTalk1 network. The transducer simply connects to the back of one of the following instruments:

  • ST40 Compass
  • ST60+ Compass
 

SeaTalkng

The Fluxgate Compass transducer is compatible with the i70, ST70 and ST70+ (retired) instruments on the SeaTalkng network via an iTC-5 transducer converter (sold separately). The transducer is connected to the iTC-5 which converts the transducer signals to SeaTalkng. The iTC-5 is then connected to your SeaTalkng backbone.

Note that if your system contains an SPX autopilot the Fluxgate Compass should connect directly to the course computer and not the iTC-5.


RUDDER REFERENCE

SeaTalk1

The Rudder Reference transducer is compatible with the ST60+ instruments on the SeaTalk1 network. The transducer simply connects to the back of one of the ST60+ Rudder Angle Indicator instrument.

The transducer is connected to the iTC-5 which converts the transducer signals to SeaTalkng. The iTC-5 is then connected to your SeaTalkng backbone.

Note that if your system contains an SPX or Evolution autopilot the Rudder Reference should connect directly to the course computer/ACU and not the iTC-5.
