Important Information
     Raymarine DSM300 and DSM30 Digital Sounder Modules provide echo sounder
     data that can be displayed on Raymarine E Series, C Series, and hsb2 PLUS
     (Pathfinder) Series display units.
     This manual contains important information for installing and maintaining your
     Digital Sounder Module. Raymarine's Technical Services representatives or your
     local dealer will be available to answer any questions you may have.
     Instructions on how to operate the fishfinder application can be found in the
     handbook for your particular display system.

   Intended Use
     DSM300 and DSM30 Digital Sounder Modules are intended for depth finding and
     fishfinding purposes on recreational (non-IMO/SOLAS class) boats. Echo
     sounders require an appropriate Raymarine transducer and interconnecting
     cable.

   Safety Notices
     This equipment must be installed and operated in accordance with the
     instructions contained in this manual. Failure to do so can result in personal injury
     and/or navigational inaccuracies. In particular:
     CAUTION: High Voltage
     Digital Sounder Modules contains high voltages. Adjustments require specialized
     service procedures and tools only available to qualified service technicians ­ there
     are no user serviceable parts or adjustments. The operator should never remove
     the cover or attempt to service the equipment.
     CAUTION: Transducer Cable
     Removing the transducer cable from the rear of the DSM300 or DSM30 while the
     sounder module is powered on can cause sparks. Only remove the transducer
     cable after power has been removed from the DSM. As with any electronic device,
     be sure the sounder module is mounted where it is well ventilated and free from
     gasoline fumes.
     If the transducer cable is accidentally removed while the DSM is powered on,
     remove power from the sounder module, replace the transducer cable, and then
     return power to the module. As a safety feature, the sounder module only
     recognizes that the transducer is connected at power-up.

Chapter 1: DSM Installation
1.1 Introduction
      This chapter provides details for mounting the DSM300 and DSM30 and
      connecting to the display.
      For the system to display depth, water temperature and speed, you must install
      the transducer type(s) capable of transmitting the appropriate data.

    Planning the Installation
      Before you install your system, plan the installation, considering:
      · Location of the sounder module, as described in Section 1.3
      · Cable Runs, as described in Section 1.5
      · Correct transducer for your application

    EMC Installation Guidelines
      All Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry
      standards for use in the recreational marine environment.
      Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic
      Compatibility (EMC) standards, but correct installation is required to ensure that
      performance is not compromised. Although every effort has been taken to ensure
      that they will perform under all conditions, it is important to understand what
      factors could affect the operation of the product.
      The guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance,
      but it is recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all
      situations. To ensure the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the
      constraints imposed by any location, always ensure the maximum separation
      possible between different items of electrical equipment.
      For optimum EMC performance, it is recommended that wherever possible:
      · Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are:
        · At least 5 ft (1.5 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying
           radio signals, e.g., VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB
           radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft (2 m).
        · More than 7 ft (2 m) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can nor-
           mally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above and below the radiating
           element.
8                                              DSM300 and DSM30 Installation Manual


    · The equipment is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine
      start. Voltage drops below 10 V and starter motor transients can cause the
      equipment to reset.
      This will not damage the equipment, but may cause the loss of some informa-
      tion and may change the operating mode.
    · Raymarine specified cables are used. Cutting and rejoining these cables can
      compromise EMC performance and must be avoided unless doing so is
      detailed in the installation manual.
    · If a suppression ferrite is attached to a cable, this ferrite should not be
      removed. If the ferrite needs to be removed during installation it must be reas-
      sembled in the same position.

    Suppression Ferrites
    The following illustration shows typical cable suppression ferrites used with
    Raymarine equipment. Always use the ferrites supplied by Raymarine.




                                                             D3548-3




    Connections to Other Equipment
    If your Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable
    not supplied by Raymarine, a suppression ferrite must always be attached to the
    cable that is closest to the Raymarine unit.

1.2 Unpacking and Inspecting the Components
            Unpack your system carefully, to prevent damage to the equipment. Save the
            carton and packing, in case you need to return the unit for service. Check that you
            have all the correct system components:

1.3 Selecting Sounder Module Mounting Location
      DSM300 and DSM30 sounder modules are waterproof to IPX-7 is and is designed
      to be mounted either above or below deck.
      Mount the DSM where it is:
      ·   protected from physical damage and excessive vibration
      ·   protected from prolonged exposure to rain, salt spray and direct sunlight
      ·   well ventilated
      ·   as close to the transducer as possible
      Do not locate the DSM:
      · in the engine compartment
      · on the main console
      When planning the installation, the following should be considered to ensure
      reliable and trouble free operation:
      · Access: There must be sufficient space below the unit to enable cable con-
        nections to the panel connectors, avoiding tight bends in the cable.
Chapter 1: DSM Installation                                                                            11


            · Interference: The selected location should be far enough away from
              devices that may cause interference, such as motors, generators, and radio
              transmitter/receivers. (See the EMC guidelines earlier in this chapter.)
            · Magnetic compass: Mount the unit at least 3 ft (1 m) away from a magnetic
              compass.
            · Cable runs: The unit must be located near a DC power source. The power
              cable supplied is 10 ft (3 m).
            · Environment: Provide good ventilation to prevent overheating.
            CAUTION: Do Not Remove the Transducer Cable
            Removing the transducer cable from the sounder module while
            power is turned on can cause sparks. As with any electronic
            device, be sure the sounder module is mounted where it is well
            ventilated and free from gasoline fumes.

1.4 Mounting the Sounder Module
            The DSM can be mounted either above or below deck using the supplied
            hardware. To allow for ease of cable connection, mount the sounder module so
            that the cables hang below the unit.

            Note: For fiberglass with a gelcoat surface, you should overdrill the surface to prevent the
            gelcoat from chipping when driving in the screw. Before drilling the pilot hole, hand drill
            the marked location with an oversized bit and countersink to approximately 3/8" diame-
            ter.
            4. Drive the supplied #8 screws into the pilot holes. Screw them in about half way.
            5. Mount the module to the surface, slipping the screw heads through the four
                 key holes.
            6. Press the module downward so the screws align with the narrow end of the
                 keyholes.

1.5 Cable Runs
       Consider the following before installing the system cables:
       · You will need to attach power, transducer, and display cables.
       · All cables should be adequately secured, protected from physical damage,
         and protected from exposure to heat.
       · Avoid running cables through bilges or doorways, or close to moving or hot
         objects.
       · Avoid sharp bends.
       · Use a watertight feed-through wherever a cable passes through an exposed
         bulkhead or deckhead.
       · Secure cables in place using tie-wraps or lacing twine. Coil any extra cable
         and tie it out of the way.

1.6 System Connections
       The connector panel provides the following connection sockets:
       · T/D, 7-pin socket for connecting to the transducer
       · HSB2, 4-pin socket for connecting to a C Series or hsb2 PLUS Series display
       · POWER, 3-pin socket; two for connecting to boat's DC power and one RF
         ground (screen) connection
       · SEATALK HS, RJ-45 socket for connecting to an E Series display
                                                                    10.7 to 32 VDC (DSM300),
     C Series or hsb2 PLUS                                          10.7 to 18 VDC (DSM30)

       CAUTION:
       To protect exposed pins, please place the attached dust cover
       over the socket (4-pin or RJ-45) to which you are not connecting a
       cable.
Chapter 1: DSM Installation                                                                     15


        Transducer Connection
            A 30 ft (10 m) cable is supplied with the transducer. This cable has a connector
            plug (with an outer nut that you must attach) at one end for attaching to the
            "T/D" connector on the sounder module. Optional extension cables are available.
            CAUTION: Do Not Cut or Splice the Transducer Cable
            · There is high voltage on the transducer cable. Splicing could
              create a safety hazard.
            · Cutting the transducer cable severely reduces sonar
              performance. If the cable is cut, it must be replaced--it cannot
              be repaired.
            · Cutting the transducer cable will void the warranty and
              invalidate the European CE mark.

        DC Power Connection
            The DSM300 is intended for use on boat's DC power systems rated from 10.7 V to
            32 V. The DSM30 is intended for use on boat's DC power systems rated from 10.7
            V to 18 V (12 volt systems only).
            The power connection to the unit should be made at either the output of the
            battery isolator switch or at a DC power distribution panel. Power should be fed
            directly to the DSM via its own dedicated cable system and protected by a thermal
            circuit breaker or fuse on the red (positive) wire that is installed close to the power
            connection.
            A10 ft (3 m) power cable is supplied with the unit. This cable has a connector plug
            at one end for attaching to the "POWER" connector on the sounder module and
            3 wires at the other end for connecting the power supply. The power cable may be
            extended by up to 60 ft (20 m) using a wire gauge of AWG 12 or greater.
            The RED wire must be connected to the feed from the positive (+) battery terminal
            and the BLACK wire to the feed from the negative (­) battery terminal. The shield
            wire (drain) should be connected to the boat's RF ground. See "Ground
            Connection" on page 18.
            Install a quick blow 8 amp fuse on the red (positive) wire.
            CAUTION: If the power connections are accidentally reversed the
            system will not work. Use a multimeter to ensure that the input
            power leads are connected for correct polarity.
            DC power is connected at the 3-pin POWER connector on the unit's connector
            panel. The connector (viewed from the outside) and pin functions are shown in
            the following diagram and table.

     There is no power switch on the DSM. The unit turns on when the power cord is
     attached to boat's power and plugged into the POWER connector on the
     connector panel.
     Note: You should locate the DSM so that the power cord can be easily removed, if
     necessary. If the sounder is placed in a difficult-to-reach location, Raymarine strongly
     suggests installing an on/off switch on the DSM power cord at a point where it is easily
     accessible.

     Ground Connection
       It is important that an effective RF ground is connected to the system. A single
       ground point should be used for all equipment. You can ground the sounder
       module by connecting the drain wire (shield) of the Power Input cable to the
       boat's RF ground. If you need to extend the wire, the extension wire should be an
       8 mm braid or AWG 10 multi-stranded cable. If your boat does not have an RF
       system, connect the drain wire to the negative battery terminal.
       The DC system should be either:
       · Negative grounded, with the negative battery terminal connected to the
         boat's ground.
       · Floating, with neither battery terminal connected to the boat's ground.
       This system is not intended for use on "positive" ground vessels.

1.7 Display Configuration
       The DSM must be connected to an hsb2 PLUS Series, C Series or E Series display
       unit to show echo sounder data. How you configure your sounder module
       depends on the type of display to which you will be connecting it.

     Configuring E Series Displays
       The E Series system operates on the SeaTalkhs network. E Series cables have an
       RJ-45 modular connector that attach to the "SEATALK HS" connector on the
       sounder module. See "Cable Options" on page 10 for a list of available E Series
       cables. When the DSM is used with a single display, connection is made via a
       SeaTalkhs Crossover Coupler.

        Configuring C Series Displays
            The C Series system uses cables with a round 4-pin twist-lock network connector.
            A 3m-long C Series cable is included with your sounder module and is also
            available in a 10 m length (Raymarine part number E65011). The display cable
            attaches to the 4-pin male connector labelled "HSB2"on the connector panel of
            the sounder module.

     Configuring hsb2 PLUS (Pathfinder) Series Displays
       hsb2 PLUS network cables have a triangular 3-pin connector on both ends. When
       using the DSM with an hsb2 PLUS Series display, connect the supplied 4-pin to
       3-pin hsb2 adapter between the sounder module and the network cable.
       The hsb2 system must be terminated at both ends of the network. If a PLUS Series
       display is the last device on the network, an inline terminator is installed on the
       cable where it connects to the display. The network connection in the DSM,
       however, is internally terminated; it does not require an inline terminator.
       Because the sounder module is internally terminated, it must be
       installed at the end of the hsb2 network. You must not use an inline
       terminator on the DSM end of the network. If an hsb2 splitter is
       used, connect it to a display and not to the DSM.

Chapter 2: Maintenance and Problem
           Solving
           This chapter provides information on routine maintenance and on possible causes
           of problems you may experience with your Digital Sounder Module.

2.1 Maintenance
           CAUTION:
           The sounder unit contains high voltage. Adjustments require
           specialized service procedures and tools only available to
           qualified service technicians. There are no user serviceable parts
           or adjustments and the operator should not attempt to service
           the equipment. The operator should not remove the rear cover of
           the module.

       Routine Checks
           The sounder module is a sealed unit. Maintenance procedures are therefore
           limited to the following periodic checks:
           · Examine the cables for signs of damage, such as chafing, cuts or nicks.
           · Check that the cable connectors are firmly attached.

       Cleaning Instructions
           Cleaning the Module
           The DSM is a sealed unit and does not require regular cleaning. However, if you
           find it necessary to clean the unit, please follow these basic procedures:
           · Ensure power is off.
           · Wipe the module clean with a damp cloth.
           · If necessary, use IPA (isopropyl alcohol) or a mild detergent solution to
             remove grease marks.

           Cleaning the Transducer
           Sea growth can collect quickly on the bottom of the transducer, this can reduce
           the performance in just a few weeks. To prevent the build-up of sea growth, coat
           the transducer with a thin layer of paint.
22                                                 DSM300 and DSM30 Installation Manual


       Use only a water-based antifouling paint, or a water-based paint specifically
       designed for transducers. Apply the paint with a brush.
       If your transducer becomes fouled or stops working because of sand or sea
       growth, use a stiff brush to clean it. You may sand the surface with a fine-grit wet
       or dry sandpaper (#320 grade or finer), but this will affect the performance of the
       unit when the boat is moving at higher speeds.
       The paddle wheel mechanism may become jammed by dirt, grit or barnacles.
       Work the contaminant out of the mechanism, then clean the unit with soap and
       water or alcohol.

       Cleaning the Hull
       Use caution when sanding or cleaning the outside of the hull near the transducer.
       CAUTION:
       Harsh cleaning solvents such as acetone may damage the
       transducer.

     EMC Servicing and Safety Guidelines
       · Raymarine equipment should be serviced only by authorized Raymarine ser-
         vice technicians. They will ensure that service procedures and replacement
         parts used will not affect performance. There are no user serviceable parts in
         any Raymarine product.
       · Some products generate high voltages, so never handle the cables/connec-
         tors when power is being supplied to the equipment.
       · When powered up, all electrical equipment produces electromagnetic fields.
         These can cause adjacent pieces of electrical equipment to interact with one
         another, with a consequent adverse effect on operation.
         To minimize these effects and enable you to get the best possible perfor-
         mance from your Raymarine equipment, guidelines are given in the installa-
         tion instructions, to enable you to ensure minimum interaction between
         different items of equipment, i.e. ensure optimum Electromagnetic Compati-
         bility (EMC).
       · Always report any EMC-related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer.
         We use such information to improve our quality standards.
       · In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the equipment from
         being affected by external influences. In general this will not damage the
         equipment but it can lead to spurious resetting action, or may result in
         momentary faulty operation.

       Common Problems and Their Solutions
           Table 2-1: Common Sounder Problems
            Problem                     Correction

            Display "freezes"           1. Check that the scroll speed is not set to zero.
                                        2. Check the transducer cable for damage. If damaged, the
                                        cable and transducer must be replaced as a unit.

            Sounder does not display 1. Fish arches are not displayed if the boat is stopped -
            fish                     fish appear on the display as straight line.
                                     2. Ensure the transducer is within 10° of vertical.
                                     3. Check that the gain is not set too low.

            Sounder does not see        1. If you have a transom-mount transducer, check that the
            bottom or fish              transducer hasn't kicked-up on hitting an object.
                                        2. Check that the gain is not set too low.
                                        3. Check that the transducer is within 10° of vertical.
                                        4. Check that the transducer face is not covered or fouled.
                                        If necessary, clean the transducer.
                                        5. Check the voltage from the power source; if this is too low
                                        it can affect the transmitting power of the sounder.

            Sounder displays a lot of   1. Check that the gain is not set too high.
            background noise            2. Check that the transducer is mounted correctly and is
                                        clean.

            Sounder speed or log        1. Check that the transducer paddle wheel is clean.
            readings are wrong          2. If necessary add a speed offset.
                                        3. If receiving SeaTalk speed, unplug the SeaTalk connector
                                        from the display.

     Status LED
       The LED on the connector panel provides valuable information on the status of
       your sounder module. The LED blinks green while the module is operating
       normally. If the unit detects a problem, the LED blinks amber to indicate a warning
       or red for an error. The number of times the LED blinks is a code representing the
       nature of the problem. For multiple warnings/errors, the codes are given in
       sequence with a 1.5 second pause between strings.
       The following table shows the various LED status codes and their meanings.

       Table 2-2: Status LED Warning Indications

        After 30 seconds of no network activity, the sounder enters Standby mode: No sonar pings
       are emitted and no warnings are output on the LED. Instead, the LED blinks green once
       every 10 seconds.
       For example, if the Transducer Sense fails and the network is not detected, the LED blinks
       amber once, pauses 1.5 secs, blinks amber twice 0.5 secs apart, pauses 1.5 secs, and then
       repeats the sequence until the problems are resolved or up to 10 minutes elapse.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
