What Goes into the Making of a Transducer? The main component of a depth transducer is the piezoceramic element. It is the part that converts electrical pulses into sound waves, and when the echoes return, the piezoceramic element converts the sound waves back into electrical energy. Piezoceramic elements are most often in a disk form, but they may also be in the shape of a bar or a ring. A transducer may contain one element or a series of elements linked together called an array. A transducer is made up of six separate components: • Piezoceramic element or an array of elements • Housing •...

Broadband versus Non-Broadband Airmar achieves superior results by using a unique ceramic material. It lets transducers operate over a broad range of frequencies while maintaining sensitivity. These Broadband Transducers are, by definition, low-Q devices (refer to “Q” paragraph). In other words, they exhibit very low ringing. There is little variation from transducer to transducer. Additionally, Broadband Transducers are relatively immune to the effects of aging, so their frequency range remains stable over time. Airmar is the first to introduce affordable Broadband Transducers. This is an...

RMS Power versus Peak-To-Peak Power All Airmar transducers are measured in RMS power as opposed to peak-to-peak power ratings. Peak-To-Peak power ratings are eight times higher than RMS power, which can trick the consumer into thinking that their echosounder and transducer are more powerful than they really are. For example, if a transducer manufacturer advertises 4,000 Watts peak-to-peak power, this is only 500 Watts RMS power. See the chart below for typical Airmar transducers and their power ratings in both RMS and Peak-To-Peak. Beamwidth Airmar measures transducer beamwidth at -3 dB....

CHIRP CHIRP-Ready Transducers Quick Guide Airmar’s new CHIRP-ready transducers represent the next generation of technology that will allow fishermen to unlock new secrets in fishfinding. Echosounder operation away from the traditional 50 kHz and 200 kHz has proven that different fish species return better signals at various frequencies. CHIRP-ready transducers are capable of operating over a wide (or “Broad”) frequency band ranging from 25 kHz to 60 kHz, 85 kHz to 135 kHz and from 130 kHz to 210 kHz. Traditional fishfinders transmit a pulse at a single-frequency (50 kHz or 200 kHz) which is...
