I've got so many components now I want to ensure that what I am doing is the proper way. Components are as follows: |
HDS-10 Gen 2 connected to Airmar B60 Thru-hull transducer
HDS-5 Gen 2 (would like to use same transducer info from hds10 but also have capability to use the oem transducer for backup)
LST-3800 Temp/Depth gauge
You are showing three devices with depth sounder modules, including the LST-3800. You cannot run more than one sounder on the same frequency at the same time, or they will interfere with each other and none will work correctly. The two HDS units can be set to work at 200kHz and/or either 83kHz or 50kHz, depending on the transducer fitted. The LST-3800 operates at 200kHz. No matter how you slice it, that's at least one too many sounders.
Depending on the transducer(s) you use with the HDS units, the LST-3800 is completely redundant anyway, and can provide no information not already provided by one or the other of the HDS units. My suggestion would be to simply not install that device.
