Lowrance og Simrad adapterkabel for ekkoloddgiver.

Vi tar en rask kikk på variantene av adaptere mellom 7- og 9-pins kontaktene.

Det samme skjer hver gang en ekkoloddprodusent endrer på kontaktene sine, folk blir forvirret så det holder. Skal jeg ha blå kontakt? Skal jeg ha sort kontakt? Hvorfor er det ikke 9 pinner i "min" sorte kontakt? Hjelp!

Endel av spørsmålene ender hos oss, og dermed kommer ideen til en liten artikkel. Det er flere ulike adaptere ute og går her, avhengig av hvilket ekkolodd og hvilken ekkoloddgiver man skal koble sammen.

Modellene Elite Ti, Elite Ti2, HDS Gen 3, HDS Carbon og HDS Live har alle en sort 9-pins kontakt bak som kalles xSonic. Tilsvarende hos Simrad er GO og NSS Evo3.

Bak på en HDS Carbon 7 ser det slik ut:

Kontakter på HDS Carbon
Den BLÅ porten brukes for både Lowrance sine egne 2D-givere OG Airmar sine givere.

Adapter 9 til 7 for Airmar har artikkelnummer 000-13977-001 (LINK) og brukes der du har en Airmargiver med XID og den sorte X-Sonic kontakten som du skal plugge i den BLÅ kontakten bak på en HDS Gen 3 eller HDS Carbon. Eksempler på slike ekkoloddgivere er TM150, B150, TM185 og B175, det vil si chirp-givere med ett frekvensbånd. (Se forøvrig DENNE oversikten over slike givere.)

Hva da med HDS Live?

Bak på en HDS Live ser det slik ut, merk at den tradisjonelle blå porten nå er endret kontra tidligere modeller:

 
Blå port på HDS Live øverst, gammel blå port nederst

Hvis du har kjøpt en HDS Live og ønsker å bruke en ekkoloddgiver med den gamle bå kontakten (kalt 7-pins) på den, så må du ha adapter 000-13313-001. Merk at de nye ekkoloddgiverne 2 in 1 og 3 in 1 skal i den sorte porten på HDS Live. Du finner så 2D fra 3 in 1 på kanal 2 i kildevalg, dvs der du velger frekvens i ekkoloddbildet. Den kommende LiveSight-ekkoloddgiveren skal også i den blå porten på HDS Live, så skal du bruke både LiveSight og ekkoloddgiver med blå kontakt får du plugge inn og ut etter bruk. (Husk at ekkoloddet ALLTID må være av når du gjør det.)

Hva da med en Airmar dobbeltbåndsgiver?

Dobbeltbåndsgiveren har to (2) kontakter, og kobles slik:
Eksempler på kobling av Airmar dobbeltbåndsgiver.



Antall pinner i kontakten?


Det maksimale i den sorte kontakten er 9, og det maksimale i den blå er 7. Men det er absolutt ikke gitt at alle er der, eller at alle er i bruk. Så hvis din ekkoloddgiver har den sorte kontakten, men ikke 9 pinner, fortvil ikke. Det betyr bare at din ekkoloddgiver ikke har mange nok elementer til å benytte alle 9 pinnene.
For få pinner? Ingen fare - det er mange nok.

Hva med Lowrance Hook2 og Simrad Cruise?

De har egne kontakter og derfor egne adaptere. Informasjon omde adapterne finner du her:

What is the difference between HDS Carbon and HDS Live?

Here we go again, a new generation of the Lowrance HDS. And with that Facebook and the different forums are flooded with questions referring to the difference between the new and the old. So what is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and HDS Carbon?

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI

Ever since the Elite 7 HDI came on the market I have recived a lot of questions regarding the difference between the HDS-range and Elite HDI. In this article I will try to list most of the differences, seen from a keen anglers point of view. This also means looking at most of what Lowrance has to offer, but I'm sticking to models sold today and models I personally would recommend. The three main model-series, plus the newcomer Elite CHIRP. HDS Gen 2 , true multi function displays (MFD) with button-operation and screensize from 5" to 10,4". HDS Gen 2 Touch , true multi function displays (MFD) with touchscreens and screensize from 7" to 12". Elite HDI , "stand alone", ie not ment for networking besides VHF and AIS. Button-operation and screensize from 4,3" to 7". Elite CHIRP , as Elite HDI but with CHIRP-sonar and faster processor in adition. Screensize 5" and 7".   HDS Gen 2 Units from this series are seen while fishing

What is the difference between HDS Gen 3 and HDS Carbon?

Whenever a completely new model or a rewamp of an existing model comes out, we get the same question: "What is the difference?" Lowrance HDS Carbon Previously I have written a few articles about the differences between some of the (now historic) Lowrance-models: What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI? What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3? This time we will take a look at the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 3 and the brand new Lowrance HDS Carbon that was released 15. december 2016. We will look at the technical stuff, and try to translate that into what it will mean when out on the water. Lowrance HDS Gen 3 HDS Carbon is actually the fifth version of the popular HDS-series. Before it came HDS Gen 1, HDS Gen 2, HDS Gen 2 Touch and HDS Gen 3. HDS Gen 2 Touch marked a new area of how Lowrance run their model-updates, since it was released shortly after HDS Gen 2 and the two lived alon

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and Elite Ti2?

Lowrance as a brand of marine electronis is well known to all anglers, but the differences within their range of different models seem to cause quite a few questions out there. Here we will try to outline the difference between Lowrance HDS Live (top end) and Lowrance Elite Ti2 (middle range). Lowrance Elite Ti2 vs Lowrance HDS Live (photo; lowrance.com) As usual, we will start with the tech and then try to translate those technical aspects to practical differences while out on the water. Hardware - housing, screen and connections. The screen and housing on Elite Ti2 is the same as on the previous Elite Ti, and again more or less the same as on HDS Gen 2 Touch. (The memorycard-door and mounting-bracket is different from HDS Gen 2 Touch.) This is by no means new stuff, and compared to the more advanced housing and screen on HDS Live, Elite Ti2 is starting to show its relative age. However, with that in mind it is worth noting that when looking at the competition, several of

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3?

The cyclus in which models change have become shorter and shorter. Is there any real difference between them anymore? When I started out in this game most people would say that their sonar should stay onboard for 8-10 years before they would even consider upgrading it. Everything with less then 5 years on it was considered "new". But as with all things containing a circuit-board, development has been ever accelerating and we are now down to a two or three year cycle between model-changes. I belive that this is to the consumers advantage, but is "the new" always better then "the old"? In most cases the answer to that question is "yes", but it`s up to you to decide if that difference is big enough for you to spend your hard earned cash. Technically it is easy to spot the differences, but whether you will notice it out on the water is a more subjective mather. In this article I will try to look behind the marketing, and point to the actual diff
