Adding Fishifinder features to hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays

Adding Fishifinder features to hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays
Adding Fishifinder features to hsb2 Pathfinder Series Chartplotters or hsb2 Pathfinder Series Radar Displays

The hsb2 Pathfinder Series Chartplotters and hsb2 Pathfinder Series Radar Displays have no internal fishfinder circuitry and their fishfinder features were dependent upon interfacing the display to a hsb2 Pathfinder Series Fishfinder Display or a compatible fishfinder sounder module which in turn has been interfaced to a compatible fishfinder transducer. In the case of hsb2 Pathfinder Series Chartplotters and hsb2 Pathfinder Series Radar Displays, the DSM250, DSM30, and DSM300 Digital Sounder Modules (DSMs) would have met this requirement. Unfortunately, each of these DSMs were retired some time ago, and may now only be available from the second hand market (recommend checking Internet auction sites (ebay, Craigs List, etc.) or Raymarine dealers who also perform equipment installations). Raymarine will not be introducing a replacement Digital Sounder Module which would support use with C-Series Classic MFDs and the hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays.

The DSM250 would have been interfaced to a hsb2 Pathfinder Series Chartplotter or hsb2 Pathfinder Series Radar Display via an appropriate length of hsb Cable (1m (R55001), 3m (R55002), 6m (R55003), 10m (R55004), 20m (E55010)). Hsb2 networks must be terminated with a hsb2 Inline Termination Plug within the two devices forming the two end nodes of a hsb2 daisy chain. The hsb2 Inline Termination Plug must be removed from the hsb2 communications socket of devices within the middle of a hsb2 daisy chain.

The DSM30 and DSM300 would have been interfaced to a hsb2 Pathfinder Series Display via a cable assembly which would have been constructed from a R69081 3-Pin to 4-Pin hsb2 Adapter and an appropriate length of hsb cable. While limited inventory of hsb/hsb2 networking components were available at the time of this response, the R69081 3-Pin to 4-Pin hsb2 Adapter is no longer available from Raymarine.
