Each brand of electronics has its own preferred connector design. We use a code at the end of each transducer part number to indicate which connector is attached to the transducer cable.
For example, a B744V-10F is a B744V transducer with a '-10F' connector, which is a Furuno 10-pin female connector. This guide is to assist in identifying which connector is in use.
Where no part number is given for a replacement connector, you will need to buy a cable with that connector on one end and cut the cable.
