  2. What is the minimum depth that the DST100 will measure? The DST100 measures depth down to approximately 1.5 feet or 0.4 meters.... Read More
  3. What is the maximum depth that the DST100 will measure? The DST100 measures depth up to approximately 200 feet or 60 meters.... Read More
  4. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a DST100 configuration setting called "Transducer Depth Offset:"; what is this? Transducer offset is eitherthe distance from the waterline to the transducer (DST100 bottom surface), orthe distance from the transducer to the bottom of the vessel.Maretron display products (DSM150, DSM200, DSM250, and N2KView) add the transducer of...

  5. Why doesn’t the DST100 transmit depth when it is out of the water? The DST100 is designed to measure the speed of sound through water, not air. When the DST100 is out of the water it either won't transmit the depth or it will transmit the wrong depth.... Read More
  6. What happens when I use the TLM100/150 without a focus tube? A focus tube is recommended for tank applications that experience a drastic level change when the vessel is underway.The TLM100 transmits an ultrasonic pulse that allows the device to calculate the distance from the sensor to the fluid surface (simil...

  7. What is a DST100? A DST100 is a product that is mounted through the hull below the water line of a vessel and is used to measure water depth, speed through water, sea water temperature, depth transducer offset, resettable trip log, cumulative log. All of this informat... Read More
  8. What information does the DST100 provide? The DST100 transducer provides the following information:Speed Through Water (STW)water depthdepth transducer offsettrip logtotal distance logsea temperature... Read More
  9. What messages (or PGNs) does the DST100 transmit? The DST100 transmits the following messages (or PGNs):PGN 128259 - Speed, Water Referenced (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Speed Water Referenced, 4-Speed Water Referenced Type)PGN 128267 - Water Depth (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Water Depth, Transducer, 3-Transducer Offset...
