[TG11] Axiom 9(Non-Pro) and RV-100 Transducer
Hi,

I have an Axiom 9(non-pro) with an RV-100 transducer. I'm looking to expand the fishfinder capabilities of it as it only does high chirp. I'm wanting to get the lower frequencies so I can use it for ocean fishing deeper than 200ft. I was told I could add a Raymarine eS Series to my Axiom so I can get the lower frequencies as this is very cost effective compared to buying an Axiom Pro series MFD. So the question is whether it is possible to have an eS networked? If so, how exactly do I set it up? Also, can you recommend any other options I could do? I want to try to stay with the same transducer.

Thanks,

+ Joe

RE: [TG11] Axiom 9(Non-Pro) and RV-100 Transducer
Hello Joe,

By far the most cost-effective solution would be to connect a 600W non-Chirp 50/200kHz transducer (e.g. an E66054 P66 type) to the Axiom via an A80492 Y-cable alongside the RV-100. The only drawback of this is that the High Chirp channel gets redirected to the 50/200 transducer and is no longer available from the RV-100.

I don't see any appreciable benefit to adding an eS MFD into the system: eS98/128 have the same High Chirp as the RV-100, and eS97/127 have the same 600W, 50/200kHz output as the above solution.
Axiom Pro or a CP370 black-box would add 1kW support but you don't need that for 200ft (unless you want to...)

Regards,
Tom

Thanks Tom! This solution sounds awesome! I was really stressed about what it would take(time and money) to find a solution. This solution sounds great! Would I be still able to have side scanning with this solution?

Regards,

Hello Joe,

Yes, SideVision, DownVision and RealVision 3D will all still work as normal.
