Default Anyone know who makes this transducer?

My friend got this transducer with a kit plane he bought that was partially built. There aren't any markings on it, and we can't figure out who makes it or where it came from. Any ideas?

The red cube is made by Electronics International, Bend, Oregon.

A great company.

Nope, red cube is certified (means it will absolutely have a part number on it) and looks like this:

hard to imagine a transducer that needs 7 or 8 wires.
looks like a standard T manifold that has something potted. If you know where the connector goes, it may provide some clues.

It has 6 wires. A red and black that are wired to power, and orange, white, yellow, and blue.

Only the white and blue were hooked up, and they went to the cockpit.

There is a little flipper thing inside there, so it does very much appear to be a transducer.

Thanks! Do you by chance have a link to the docs? I searched around the flowscan site, and didn't turn anything up.

Default Sorry -- checked mine

mine has a different configuration/shape -- did some more searching online and could come up with nothing.
