Transducer Testing and Installation

We Test and Install Your Transducer

A transducer is a machine or conversion tool that changes energy from a form to another. It is familiar with measurement, control, and automation sent in signals, and thus, this process is known as transduction. There are different types of transducers which are mainly mechanical and electrical and also vary based on certain factors such as range dynamicity, repetition level, hysteresis, and noise.

Our primary services in this aspect are testing and installation.

Transducer Testing

When building a fishing vessel, an efficient transducer is an essential factor to consider. Generally, a transducer captures electronic elements (Voltage, power, current, angle, etc.) and brings them out as a timed output signal. Operations dealing with the power controls are based on the results; hence, there is a need to verify the inputs’ accuracy.

 We assist you in determining the work proficiency of your Transducer and eliminate any inconsistencies. We perform our job through one of the best and proven diagnostic devices known by the name “TDT1000 by Airmar”. The testing tool connects with its manufacturer database through an app and examines the Transducer functions while highlighting its pros and cons.

Furthermore, we use other test sets, and majorly, we lookout for their performance percentage, versatility, and efficiency. We employ the best and quality toolsets for excellent service and delivery.

Transducer Installation

Apart from testing, the company performs installation services. Our installation often follows a guide depending on certain variations but the same great result.

There are three Transducer forms: transducers made from timber, fibreglass hull, steel, and alloy. Also, the hull type will determine if the installation requires a mount, in-hull, Thru-hull, or keel transducer.

Mount Transducers

Using a mount requires finding the right spot under the hull where it is screwed tight because it is less turbulent. On the other hand, the planning services or scuppers do not offer good support for mounting.

For mount transducers, we conduct a test that would determine the position of the screen image. Usually, this test reveals whether the Transducer will go below or higher in the water.


Thru-hull uses a fairing block which helps the Transducer maintain the safe level as the floor and enhance a smooth ride. Thru-hull’s main advantage over transom mounting is that it allows for a tilting effect with a flush mounting that does not need a fairing block to function and optimises the power of small boats to accommodate high-quality transducers.

However, a thru-hull installation is hard to lift and must be carefully mounted away from noise and vibration.


In-Hull transducers are mounted in a tank that has a similar cut to the deadrise of the yacht. In-hull transducers must first be fitted before the tank is fixed. However, it involves several procedures and factors to consider.

Pod Transducers

Pod transducers usually are fitted ion trolling devices with a clamp. It then leaves a cable atop for motor versatility.

Keel Transducers

It is also known as pocket transducers. As the name implies, the transducers flush mount in the keel or hull blister.

We may also incorporate another style as appropriate in situations. In all, we believe our installation is purpose and design-driven.
