  BoatUS BoatTECH Guides: Selecting a Transducer
Transducers with a wide beam width of up to 50° will "see" around their location at a wide section of the bottom.
Using a transducer from a 100-watt unit on a 1,000-watt unit is also not a good idea as the excessive energy from the more powerful fishfinder will soon destroy the crystals within the small transducer.
Transducers may be installed through the hull, in water- or oil-filled boxes inside certain hulls, attached to the inside of some fiberglass boats, or mounted on the transom.

 Pressure Transducer Basics: a Primer
As we continue our journey through the transducer we come to the other side of the diaphragm where one side of the sensor element is. The actual element is a strain gauge; that is, a resistive element whose resistance changes with the amount of strain placed on it.
One of the better ways is to suspend the submersible transducer in a perforated 1 1/2" or 2" PVC pipe or attach the transducer (using a optional 1/2" M NPT fitting) to a rigid conduit.
When mounting the transducer in a well casing, the cable hanger can be secured to a eyebolt attached to the well plate or the side of the well casing.

 The ultrasonic hammer transducer - IEEE paper
The transducer has a resonant mass element that is independent of the acoustic load and, in certain circumstances, this configuration has a multi-resonant characteristic that is well suited to multi-frequency driving (over a significant bandwidth).
Although the construction of the transducer is similar to a conventional sandwich transducer, the operation is different as the central mass is usually designed to be the predominant resonant mechanism.
Coupling from the hammer transducer to the load was via an aluminum or steel bar and in the case of high pressure cleaning, an additional acoustical coupling ring (round the exterior of the liquid filled pipe).

 Transducer Cone Angles
If you were to plot this on a piece of graph paper, you would find that it creates a cone shaped pattern, hence the term "cone angle." The sound is strongest along the center line or axis of the cone and gradually diminishes as you move away from the center.
In order to measure the transducer's cone angle, the power is first measured at the center or axis of the cone and then compared to the power as you move away from the center.
If a fish is suspended inside the transducer's cone, but the sensitivity is not turned up high enough to see it, then you have a narrow effective cone angle.

 Transducer Mounting and Usage for Fishfinders and Navigation at PSICOMPANY.COM - 1-800-826-2907 Ext.260
The objective in mounting this style of transducer is to keep the face of the transducer in the water -- whether the boat is at rest or underway -- while minimizing the amount of transducer protruding below the bottom of the boat -- as illustrated here.
Transom mount transducers are often used on trailerable boats, as the location does not usually interfere with the trailer bunks, rollers, struts and other objects on a boat trailer.
This style of transducer is also used on boats that cannot easily accommodate a thru-hull fitting on the bottom of the boat.

 Depthsounder Transducer Mounting
In general, the transducer should be mounted on centerline, but clear from the lower unit of the outboard or outdrive.
In single engine installations, it is also frequently suggested that the transducer be mounted on the port side because of a tendency for the propellor torque to roll the hull slightly to that side.
In general, only enough of the transducer needs to be immersed to put the active face of the transducer in contact with a clear flow of water.

 The Foil vs Semiconductor(silicon) Strain Gage Debate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Transducers are typically not used as tension sensors in isolation, but are components of a measurement system with the transducer output signal being amplified and often observed on a readout display of an indication device or controller.
Some transducer manufacturers contend that the zero shift condition can and should be corrected by completely recalibrating the amplifier to the transducer.
Transducers with foil gages have difficulty with low tensions because the nominal output is so low it can be lost in the ambient electronic noise present in the electrical system.
