Question

​What is the difference between a Furuno smart sensor and a transducer?

Solution

​The Furuno smart sensor is a transducer just like any other transducer, only it has a built in micro processor.  The microprocessor converts the analog depth and temperature information received from the transducer into the digital NMEA format that can be used by many different devices.
