Philips Compact Transducer Connector Pin Protective Cover
new Compact Transducer Connector Pin Protective Cover is designed to protect
X7-2t and X8-2t transducers from potential connector pin damage sustained
during the transducer cleaning process.
Connectors can get wet during transducer cleaning, causing transducer
malfunction when plugged into the system after cleaning. The Protective Cover provides protection from
accidental moisture intrusion when installed over the connector pins. The new Protective Cover is intended to
replace the dust cover provided with the X7-2t and X8-2t transducers.

withstand years of use. To install the
new cover, remove the rubber dust cover originally supplied with the
transducer. Place the new cover over the
connector pins and press in place. Use
the twist connector to attach the cover to the transducer cord. This is the installed cover position whenever
the transducer is not connected to equipment for scanning (being transported or
use the transducer for scanning, remove the cover from the transducer
