Mix and Match 1kW transducers are made as a common base transducer with a short (2m) cable attached, plus an interchangeable longer (8m) brand-specific adapter cable.
The short pigtail attached to the transducer ends in an Airmar 9-pin female connector. The adapter cables have a matching Airmar 9-pin male connector (shown below) at one end and the correct connector for a specific brand of electronics at the other end.
Both parts are needed for an installation. If the user changes equipment brand at some later time, the transducer can be left in place and the adapter cable replaced.
Mix and Match 1kW transducers include the B164, B258, B260, M260, PM260, SS164, SS260, SS270W, TM258 AND TM260.
A 6m (20') extension cable (part MM1-EXT) is available with one male and one female 9-pin connector.
Note that 1kW Mix and Match cables cannot be used with 600W transducers.
All the available 1kW Mix and Match adapter cables are listed below.
