[CA11] Axiom Pro RVX to E97 Transducer

[CA11] Axiom Pro RVX to E97 Transducer
I am attempting to replace existing E97 and E165 units with an Axiom Pro 16 RVX. Due to the boat being in the water and not wanting to immediately replace the thru hull transducer I was hoping to temporarily adapt my current transducer to be utilized on the Axiom Pro RVX. I currently have a B744V connected to the E97. I have found numerous adaptor cables but I first want to make sure it is possible and second purchase the correct adaptor cable.

thanks

RE: [CA11] Axiom Pro RVX to E97 Transducer
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum firstin,

Please note that Raymarine 600W & 1kW 50kHz/200kHz transducers which were designed to be mated directly interfaced (i.e. no adapter cable used) to any of the following fishfinder sounder modules may be adapted (via part #A80496) to be mated to the 1kW transducer socket of an Axiom Pro RVX MFD:
- CP370
- CP300
- DSM300
- DSM30

However, Raymarine 600W 50kHz/200kHz transducers which were designed to be mated directly interfaced (i.e. no adapter cable used) to the Transducer socket any of the following MFDs may be adapted via an adapter cable to the 1kW transducer socket of an Axiom Pro RVX MFD. In order to use such a transducer, the transducer would need to be interfaced to a CP370 Fishfinder Sounder Module, which in turn would be interfaced via Ethernet network (RayNet / SeaTalkhs) communications to the Axiom Pro RVX MFD.

If supplied with a photo of the B744V's transducer tag showing all information which has been printed on the tag, then it may be possible to determine which variant of the B744V transducer is currently installed and then which of the above listed options may be used.

RE: [CA11] Axiom Pro RVX to E97 Transducer
I had a spare CP370 with an adaptor cable laying around. before installing the CP370 I was able to get the Axiom to read the transducer using the transducer to CP370 adaptor cable (possibly E66066?) then A80496 adaptor cable to the 1kw port on the Axiom. Is this an appropriate way to have my Axiom Pro read the current installed transducer? the transdiuer is labeled A66090

RE: [CA11] Axiom Pro RVX to E97 Transducer
firstin,

The A66090 variant of the B744V fishfinder transducer belongs to a family of transducers which are commonly referred to a A-Series Fishfinder Transducers. The A66090 variant of the B744V fishfinder transducer is designed to be directly interfaced to the fishfinder Transducer socket of the following products:
- eSx7 eS-Series MFDs
- e7D/ex7 e-Series MFDs
- cx7 c-Series MFDs
- ax7 a-Series MFDs
- A50D/A57D/A70D A-Series Classic MFDs
- DS400X/DS500X/DS600X Fishfinders

The A66090 variant of the B744V fishfinder transducer may also be adapted to be mated to the fishfinder Transducer socket of the following products:
- Axiom DV MFDs
- Axiom RV MFDs
- CP370 Fishfinder Sounder Module
- CP300 Fishfinder Sounder Module
- DSM30/DSM300 Fishfinder Sounder Module

A-Series Fishfinder Transducers cannot be successfully adapted to be mated to the 1kW Transducer socket of an Axiom Pro RVX MFD or RVX1000 Fishfinder Sounder Module. Accordingly and as you have indicated that this transducer has previously functioned correctly with your CP370 and should the CP370 be available, then it would be recommended that the CP370 be interfaced to the system featuring the Axiom Pro MFDs. Alternatively and should one desire to have a 50kHz/200kHz fishfinder transducer connected to the 1kW Transducer socket of the Axiom Pro RVX MFD or RVX1000 Fishfinder Sounder Module, then it would be recommended that a fishfinder transducer which is designed to be directly interfaced to a CP370 (ex. A66091 B744V, etc.) be installed in place of the currently installed A66090 B744V fishfinder transducer.

thank you for the information. looking at pictures, it appears the A66090 plug would connect to an Axiom 7 DV unit directly - just not utilize all the pins. is this correct or would I still need an adaptor?
