FCV 295 tranies

 Dose any one know it the furuno FCV 295 can take a tm260 1kw trany? This would solve a lot of my mounting problems for my shallow water trani. I know the trani has a plug an the 295 is a hard wired trani set up

Try get the opp end to the plug

 on the TM260 tranni, look up airmar furuno TM260 wire colour codes, wire it up so it has a pigtail out of the sounder with the opp plug. I've done this setup with 2 r199 trannies for the FCV 295 so I can remove my sounder out of the boat. If you need more info, send us a PM

cheers

reece, Is your TM260 a

non-diplex tranducer then ?

quote from airmar site " Non-diplexed transducers have separate pairs of conductors for the high and low frequency. It is not possible to use a diplexed transducer with a dual transmission line sounder"

The FCV 295 has separate wago connectors for each frequency and tap settings on the circuit board.

However, if the tranny has a factory plug, then it is more likely to be a diplexed tranny and can't be used with the 295

 Hay wangler. I don't have

 Hay wangler. I don't have the trany yet. Iv got a separat 1kw 200hz an a 2kw 50hz but mounting on a Ali boat makes it hard. Iv now had plastic blocks in the shape of a transom mounts made to house my old tranys to be transom mounted. Haven't used them yet but I used the same set up on a mates boat an a 585 with a power box an it worked perfect in 420m
