Aquatic growth can accumulate rapidly on the sensors surface reducing performance within weeks Surfaces exposed to salt water must be coated with antifouling paint Use waterbased antifouling paint only Never use ketonebased paint since ketones can attack many plastics possibly It is easier to apply antifouling paint before installing the sensor but allow sufficient drying time Reapply paint every 6 months or at the beginning of each boating season Paint the following surfaces see Figure 1Bore of the valve assembly up 30mm 114Exterior flange of the housing and valve assemblyBlanking plug

the hull3Sand and clean the area around the hole inside and outside to ensure that the sealant will adhere properly to the hull If there is any petroleum residue inside the hull remove it with either mild household detergent or a weak solvent alcohol before sandingMetal hullRemove all burrs with a file and sandpaperBeddingCAUTION Be sure the surfaces to be bedded are clean and dryApply a 2mm 116 marine sealant around the flange of the housing that will contact the hull and up the sidewall of the housing see The sealant must extend 6mm 14igher than the combined thickness of the hull washer and hull nut This will ensure there is sealant in the threads to seal the hull and to hold the hull nut securely in placeStainless steel housing in a metal hullThe stainless steel housing must be isolated from the metal hull to prevent electrolytic corrosion Slide the isolation bushing onto the housing Apply sealant to the t the hull filling any cavities in and around the bushingInstallingCAUTION If your sensor came with a connector do not remove it to ease cable routing If the cable must be cut and spliced use Airmars splashproof Junction Box No 33035 and follow the instructions provided Removing the waterproof connector or cutting the cable except when using a watertight junction box will void the sensors warranty1From outside the hull push the housing into the mounting hole using a twisting motion to squeeze out excess sealant see Figure 2Align the arrow on the flange of the housing to point forward toward the bownot installed on the centerline angle the housing slightly toward the centerline to align it with the water flow2From inside the hull slide the washer onto the housingStainless steel housing in a metal hullBe sure the washer contacts the hull Do not tighten the hull

the cable jacket when passing it through the bulkheads and other parts of the boat Use grommets prevent chafing To reduce electrical interference separate the sensor cable from other electrical wiring and the engine Coil any excess cable and seto prevent damage Refer to the instrument owners manual to connect the sensor to the instrumentRetrofit Into ST650 HousingThe HT200 and ST850 insert can be installed in a new or existing ST650 housing However the ST650 valve assembly inside the housing must be replaced with the HT200ST850 valve assembly so the new insert will fit To replace the valve assembly follow the instructions Servicing the Valve Assembly on page 4Checking for LeaksWhen the boat is placed in the water immediately check around the thruhull sensor for leaks Note that very small leaks may not be readily Do not leave the boat in the water for more than 3 hours before checking it again If there is a small leak there may be considerable bilge water accumulation after 24 hours If a leak is observed repeat Bedding and Installing immediately see page 2Installation in a Cored Fiberglass HullThe core wood or foamst be cut and sealed carefully The core must be protected from water seepage and the hull must be reinforced to prevent it from crushing under the hull nut allowing the housing to become looseCAUTION Completely seal the hull to prevent water seepage into the core1Drill a 3mm or 18 pilot hole from inside the hull If there is a rib strut or other hull irregularity near the selected mounting location drill from the outside If the hole is drilled in the wrong location drill a second hole in a better location l over the incorrect hole and fill it 2Using the 51mm or 2 hole saw cut the hole from outside the hull through the seeFigure 43From inside the hull use the 60mm or 238 hole saw to cut through skin and most of the core The core material can be very soft Apply only light pressure to the hole saw after cutting through the inner skin to avoid accidentally cutting the skin4Remove the plug of core material so the inside of the outer skin and the inner core of the hull are fully exposed Sand and clean the inner skin core and the outer skin around the hole5If you are skilled with fiberglass saturate a layer of fiberglass cloth with a suitable resin and lay it inside the hole to seal and strengthen the core Add layers until the hole is the correct diameterAlternatively a hollow or solid cylinder of the correct diameter can be coated with wax and taped in place Fill the gap between the cylinder and hull with casting epoxy After the epoxy has set remove the cylinder6Sand and clean the area around the hole inside and outside to ensure that the sealant will adhere properly to the hull If there is any petroleum residue inside the hull remove it with either mild household detergent or a weak solvent alcohole sanding7Proceed with Bedding and Installing on page 2Operation MaintenanceHow the Valve WorksThe valve is not a watertight seal The sensor incorporates a selfclosing valve which minimizes the flow of water into the vessel when the paddlewheeltemperature insert is removed The curved flap valve is activated by both a spring and water pressure Water pushes the flap valve upward to block the opening so there is no gush of water into the boat Always install the paddlewheeltemperature insert or the long blanking plug secured with the INSERT nut and safety wire for a watertight sealblankingplugFigure 4 Preparing a cored fiberglass hull inner skinouter skinsolid or hollow cylinderpour in epoxy912

the short emergency plug the cap nut the insert nut and the pull ring to prevent the insert from backing out in the unlikely event that the insert nut andor cap nut fails or is screwed on incorrectly see Figure 2ST850 Servicing the Paddlewheel InsertAquatic growth can impede or freeze the paddlewheels rotation and must be removed Clean the sensor with mild household detergent and a ScotchBrite scour pad If fouling is severe push out the paddlewheel shaft using a spare shaft or a 4D finish nail with a flattened point Then lightly wet sand the paddlewheel with fine grade wetdry paperThe water lubricated paddlewheel bearings have a life of up to 5 years on lowspeed boats less than 10kn 11MPHvessels Paddlewheels can fracture and shafts can bend due to impact with water borne objects and mishandling in boat yards Orings must be free of abrasions and cuts to ensure a watertight seal Order a replacement Paddlewheel Shaft Oring Kit No 331131Using the new paddlewheel shaft push the old shaft out about 6mm 14 With pliers remove the old shaft see Figure 32Place the new paddlewheel in the cavity with the flat side of the blade facing the same direction as the arrow on the top of the insert 3Tap the new shaft into place until the ends are flush with the insert4Install two of the small Orings5The remaining two small Orings are for the blanking plug6To reinstall the paddlewheel insert see Installing on page 2 and follow steps 8 through 10WinterizingAfter the boat has been hauled for winter storage remove the blanking plug to let the water drain away before reinserting it This will prevent any water from freezing around the blanking plug and possibly cracking itReplacement Sensor PartsThe information needed to order a replacement Airmar sensor is printed on the cable
