Humminbird Transducer Types and Descriptions:
Transom Mount Transducer
Humminbird Transom-mount transducers attach to the transom (back) of the boat in contact with the surface of the water. Many models incorporate an impact release feature that allows the transducer to pivot up and out of the way if struck by an object. 20 ft of cable and hardware included.
Puck transducers mount to the inside of most fiberglass hulls and trasmit the sonar signal through the hull. The hull must be a single layer fiberglass construction (cored fiberglass, metal or wood are not acceptable) and be free of trapped air and voids. The transducer is glued in with slow cure epoxy. 15 ft cable and epoxy included.
Trolling Motor Transducer
Trolling motor mount transducers are desinged to mount onto the body of most trolling motors. A low profile shape reduces drag in the water and minimizes hang-ups on weeds. 15 ft cable and hardware are included. The hose clamp includes has a minimum diameter of 3.5 inches and a maximum diameter of 5.5 inches.
