It’s a big ocean out there and if you don’t key in on the areas where the fish are stacked up, you might as well go golfing. Few indicators help you find fish better than sea-surface temperatures.
“Anglers in the know spend hours studying temperature charts on their home computers, but all of that research is useless if you don’t have a temperature gauge of some sort on the boat.”
The SI-TEX SST-110 sea-surface temperature indicator displays water temps on an easy-to-read LCD display and features alarms and other trend indicators.
With its large four-digit LCD display (measuring 4.3” x 4.3” x 3.5” overall) and rugged water-resistant construction, SI-TEX’s SST-110 can be easily installed in the wheelhouse, on the fly bridge or the instrument panel of an open center console without any complicated interfacing problems. The ability to view accurate water temperature at a glance and find favorable temperature zones and pinpoint critical offshore temp breaks that congregate forage and game fish gives you a huge advantage.
Boaters can also set high and low temperature alarms for temperature fluctuations when fishing along hard temperature edges. A temperature trend arrow on the display tells the user at a glance if sea temperatures are getting warmer, cooler or remaining constant. The SST-110 offers five levels of backlighting that can be selected and remotely switched on or off. All setup and calibration constants are saved to a nonvolatile memory, retaining settings for the next time the unit is powered up. For easy integration the SST-110 outputs standard NMEA 0183 water temperature data and works on both 12 and 24 VDC systems and draws only 0.35 amps (0.55 amps with full backlighting). SI-TEX offers both transom and thru-hull temperature transducers, which are sold separately. The SST-110 works with 30K Ohm temperature senders and is fully compatible with the popular Dytek saltwater temperature Indicators.
The unit retails for $289. For more info, visit www.si-tex.com.
