Yes sorry. Is the ST40 Bidata. Thankyou though Hartley.

Re: New Transducer, old equipment
First off - the Raymarine ST40 is Bidata (Speed/Depth); the ST60 is a Tridata (Speed/Depth/Temp). Which have you??
If it's the ST60, it already has an offshore depth alarm function - you only need to set it up. You'll find the newer stuff has a lot more functions in it than the old, hence you're better advised to sell the Datamarine unit on Ebay and go sailing..

New Transducer, old equipment
Hello everybody. I'm sure this has been answered before somewhere but here goes anyway.
On a recent haul out I was advised wrongly or rightly to change out my old 25yr old depth transducer, it did still work but "not for long" they said.
My question, I have installed said new transducer, and hooked it up to an ST40 tridata raymarine display, all works nicely, however onboard I have bits of the old system still in place, one of which being a Datamarine offshore depth alarm. Is there anyway I can hook this up to the new system via some kind of signal converter? I know this is probably not possible, just a shame not to be able to use this thing.
