Triducer (NKE)

Saw NKE instruments advertised. They've got a non-paddlewheel speed triducer. Cool. Probably pricey. I'd never heard of these (French) guys before (, has anyone else? Know any more broadly distributed US triducers doing the same thing? And has anyone tried one?

Airmar makes the bulk of the transducers used in the marine industry, and they do make an ultrasonic speed transducer. However, I don't believe it is made in a triducer unit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Just received this in our support email, I don't have an answer for him without knowing what the wiring colours of his NKE transducer represent. Thought I'd post his question and see if anyone can help me give him a useful answer.
You may consider this a bit of cheek considering that I have purchased nothing from you yet! I have purchased and fitted a new transducer only to find that the connecting five pin plug differs from the previous one. I only discovered this after making a larger hole in hull to accept new transducer housing! I know what you are thinking..........
I have been reading your web pages and warnings about connecting old and new as what I need to do is fit old 5 pin plug onto new transducer cable. Are you able to give advice? I would be grateful if you can advise on this and sort this out.
The Airmar cable is #C9...C1225 ROHS whilst the old transducer (NKE) has
blue,yellow,red and clear wiring.
Apologies if you think that I am just wasting your time, but NKE are not
communicating with me and I am running out of ideas.
