What Transducers Can a Humminbird Wide One Hundred Use?

by John Shields

Humminbird is a well-established provider of fish-finding devices. These devices use sonar to find and track fish so the angler can catch them. The Wide 100 is one of Humminbird’s lines of fish-finding devices. These devices can use several types of transducers. According to the Humminbird Wide 100 Operations Manual, depending on the transducer used, operators may have to use a mounting method different from the standard mounting method.

Transducers

To use the Humminbird Wide 100, you need to use a transducer. Transducers are devices that convert one kind of energy into another kind of energy. In fish finders, the transducer converts electrical energy, which is supplied by the battery, into acoustic energy. This energy conversion is necessary for the sonar to function.

XHS 6 16

One transducer compatible with the Humminbird Wide 100 is the XHS 6 16. This transducer uses a single beam and operates at 200 kilohertz. It comes with a 20-foot cable and its cone angle is set at 16 degrees. It comes with a modular connector. It is compatible with several other kinds of Humminbird devices, including the Wide 128, the Wide One and the Wide W.

XHS 6 24

Another transducer compatible with the Humminbird Wide 100 is the XHS 6 24. This transducer is considered high speed. It operates at 200 kilohertz, comes with a 20-foot cable and includes a modular connector. Its cone angle is set at 24 degrees. This transducer also works with the Humminbird Wide 128 and the Wide One Deep.

XT6 20

The Humminbird Wide 100 is also compatible with the XT6 20 transducer. This transducer uses a dual beam and can operate at either 200 kilohertz or 83 kilohertz. It also comes with a 20-foot cable and is compatible with many other fish finders, such as Wide W, the LCR W and the LCR400.
