The Simrad 38-9 is a 38 kHz single beam transducer. It is mainly designed for fish finding and bottom mapping applications.
The Simrad 38-9 comprises a total of 88 "Tonpilz" elements. These offer a relatively narrow beam with substantial range capability.
The transducer is normally mounted flush with the hull plating. The clamping ring secures the transducer body to a mounting ring. The mounting ring is welded into the hull plating. The transducer can also be flush-mounted in the same manner at the bottom of a blister or a drop keel.
The transducer cable penetrates the hull using a stuffing tube and a cable gland.
